Hi all, here is another update of the work that I had to do for the AT-AT!
With the Most of the routing work for the legs and reservoir work done, I could start on the base. The idea was to have the radiators, PSU, fancontroller, flowmeter, UV strip and media bay in the base as that would not fit inside the body.
Had a couple of pieces of mesh left over from the EURISKO. Thats why i keep telling my wife, never throw away anything ... And why i got so much crap scattered across my workspace , lol
The whole base is going to be covered with pieces of styrene.
Cut ou the letters by hand, could have gotten a lasercutter to do it more precise but I just like this work !
Glueing it all together, another job for my trusted fret saw. It weighs 40 pounds !
Damn it. Red UV plexi has the tendency to go pink.
Also the styrene is not lightproof enough so you can see the plexi through it.
Fixed it with some Aluminum tape !
I really needed to get some more red into the base, luckily I had this rgb strip laying around.
Wiring , wiring , wiring ...
Ah that looks better ...
Finally I could get started on soldering all the connectors back. I am so hoping I labelled it all correctly ...
I could not use screws to mount everything correctly in place as that would be visible on the top side of the base, so I had to resort to an old disney trick ... TAPE IT !!!
The final result ... Well almost, the connecting tube between the rads has been cut in 2 and a flowmeter has been placed to make sure I had adequate flow.
Gotta love these fans, they arent the most quiet around but they sure do look pretty. Sort of like a generator ..
And with the base almost done, I could start on the body side soldering and placing of the hardware !
Until the next update !
