The emblem should be about 7 or 8 inches if scale is any indication...so a 20cm fan may fit (20cm=8" for those who don't know).

Tools...I recommend a Dremel or Rotozip. Love them. Small cuts and contoured stuff makes them a must (I have both )

Single greatest tool though...your imagination!

If you decide to paint it, prep the plastic before you do.
Have a couple of those boxes.
Sand the plastic and metal with 500 or 600 grit to give
your paint something to stick too.

Personal idea, switch the 'D' with an 'H'
Have realistic flames comming out of the fan hole mentioned above!
sorry can't help it, I have a 'H'ell PowerEdge server that is
giving me fits right now!!!

Krylon Fusion for plastic is a miracle paint that doesn't need prep, other than washing yer rig in hot soapy water. I recommend the 'mystic prism'.

Be sick to have a custom window that forms letters as you said like H3ll or what ever you like, or just a custom shape window with a nice pain job. Be nice to make it like a worn out comp look almost like painted rust detail or something make it look MEAN.

The other idea is cut out that side dell logo and try and mount a 25cm fan or cut that for a circle basis and then use a dremel to make it a fire shaped window it would look nice....

http://membres.lycos.fr/minhhuytrant...tfire_logo.gif that shape or you could even do a sick crossbones with it somehow...

http://samtrix.eclub.lv/Spitfire%20logo3.jpg that would be a sick window... some of the best modded cases are REALLY simple or REALLY out there
