This Was A Triumph

In my last post I included pictures of a behemoth of a steel case I will be focusing on for my next mod. Since then, I have been working diligently in Google Sketchup to put together the design. I really consider this one to be my first "real" mod, as I am really building the whole case and not just painting it.

The case mod itself is being modeled after the Aperture Science Sentry Gun (Turret) from Portal, easily my favorite Valve game. I'm so excited about how the models are turning out, it really looks like one!

The majority of the plans are done, right now I'm trying to decide on a tripod design for the elevated case feet that will remain stable under weight. I'd love to find a way to put collapsible hinges on the case doors so it can open the same way the turrets do when firing, and a wireless antennae long enough to resemble the turret antennae.As soon as I find myself at a suitable stopping point, I'll open up a thread here in the case mod section. If you're reading this, I'd appreciate if you took a look and subscribed when it goes up!
