Project : BrinNutz's Twin Towers Tribute Mod!!! (retired from competition)

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
This is all copied and pasted from my worklog which stated a few months ago. I have not updated anything since 30 Oct 06. This is going to be for the motivation and support of you all for me to finish it!!

All new pics when I start modding again will be embedded into the post, not thumbnails.

This is the beginning of my first case mod. I have not fully figured out what I'm going to be doing yet, but, I believe it's going to be involving 2 cases.

One case I will be modding, and as of right now, I'll be building a custom case that may or may not attach to the main case, which will be used as a water box to house all of the watercooling components.

Initial pics of the Modding Case :






There will be more along the way, that will have explanations, and I will probably explain more in detail when I get more ideas on what to do...so, here goes!!

Ok, I have decided on a mod design...More of a Tribute than anything. I am planning on doing a Twin Towers Tribute, since I have not yet seen one, and am hoping this is the first.

As stated above, here is the case I will be using :
http://3btech.net/supobeatxfut.html

I will actually be using 2 for this mod, and I have scratched the idea of an external waterbox, since this will possibly be a 2 case Mod, modded into one case.

I am thinking of taking 2 of these cases, and modding it (somehow) into one, by flipping one case upside down on the other.

Or, I may build 2 towers on their own, and mount them to the top of the one case, to allow me to build the Radiator into on of the towers.

Here is the basic sketch of the frame, using everyone's favorite, MS Paint



Obviously, the front of the case will be on the right, which will signify the North Tower.

As for the exterior of the bottom of the case, I will possibly either go with the entire backside panel, behind mobo, covered in the names of the lives lost on 9/11/01, and then on the front side panel, I will mod a window into the side, and possibly etch the FDNY Badge and NYPD Badges into the window.

The two towers themselves, will either be airbrushed (which I have no idea how to do), or will be somehow covered in a picture of the Towers.

The towers will have Antennae on the top, like the real ones did, lit with Red LED's.

After some more brainstorming, I have decided to take two of the same cases, and mount them side by side....Here is a shot of the two stripped apart :


I have decided that the whole Radiator in the tower idea was not practical, because, how could I get some fresh air to the Rad...Anywho the empty case w/out the mobo tray will possibly be holding the Rads now.


IDEA :
I may be going with a 3-loop H2O System, one loop for RED, one for WHITE, and one loop for BLUE.

So, that will mean that I need to have 3 pumps and 3 Rads..Now, I don't know how I'm going to do that, maybe, one rad in the front, one on top, and on one the rear.


Here's the rest of the pics :






I'm going to clean the insides up very well, meaning, no random unneeded brackets or anything.

I would like to obtain a NYPD and FDNY badge, and mount a custom resevoir, with the badge inside of it. Would be sweet, but don't konw how of if that will get done.

Well, some things hav changed...but, I'm going to finally be welding the two cases together today, and getting the back of the hollowed out one cut out.

I don't know if this will be done for teh competition, but I sure hope so...

This is basically the only update I have, in a week...
A lot has been going on lately, as in, quitting my job, trying to find a new one, and deciding that I'm going to enlist in the Navy...AGAIN..Yes, I just got out in April 2006, and I'm deciding to go back..w00t!!



Well, got some work done today...Got the two cases welded together. One case warped a little bit, so I'm going to have to use bondo...w00t...HAve to use it anyways on the front...I also had to chop the side off of one of the front panels, so that they will both line up correctly and flush.

Here are the pics :




There will be a plexi glass window on the door panel on the side, just as your looking in here, along with another plexiglass window between the two cases that will give a 3D effect which will be etched with something memorable.






Here is the layout for where to Twin Towers will be mounted on the case. The dimensions are going to be 6" wide by 20.117" (give or take) tall. I believe this is 1/64th scale, after I had done the math.



Haven't gotten around to do any more modding in the last week...I have worked the last 6 days, and am pretty much completely broke. So, I don't know if the whole 3 loops of H2O cooling is going to get done, unless by the grace of god, someone decides to donate some...Which, won't happen, because this thing isn't published..LOL
