[Sponsored Case Mod] Project: Hulk Smash Tesseract - Page 2

post #11 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hello there!! Today is the day i am painting the triple radiator according to the main color scheme, which is black/green
So, at first, i removed the old masking tape i had on it and sanded it with 120 grit sandpaper.






Then i decided to wash it and wet sand it with 500 grit sand paper. This particular sandpaper is commonly used in car painting areas for detailing after the primering process and before the main paint.


Then i covered the ocool badge with some tape.


Afterwards, i painted the rad with orange primer because i don't have any grey primer left, doesn't matter this will do the job just fine!! biggrin.gif



After it dried, i painted it green.



Then, i thought i'll make it with crackles so i applied a thin layer of matt color and let it dry but didn't go as planned and i applied the plastic bag effect with some extra green paint splashes!!
Here is the rad finished!!













What remains now is clear coating the rad to make it look glossy.
Now i am waiting for a specific silicon to make molds and create the hulk's fists after mine, so it will take quite long time so be patient and as long as i get it, i will be making a post!!
Until then, cheers!!

I can't do much these days because I have to make a reservoir for out of acrylic and I don't have a water resistant glue plus I have to buy the silicon for the mold to make the hulk's hands out of mine, so please be patient and ask whatever you want!! Cheers!!

Not much done, i just stripped the case and painted the upper panel only!!






Here is a test fit of the radiator on the front!!


Now lets start painting, first i had to remove the little fan filter that the case had!!


And i little bit of sanding with 280 grit sandpaper to roughen the factory color so the rest of the painting will stick better



Primer first!!


Green color!!


Now black gloss and as long as it was wet i applied a clear plastic bag to create that random and abstract effect!!


What i bought was a pair Hulk's hands to create after them the mold and make the case look like it is punched!!


I hope more updates will come soon!! Cheers!!

So today was alligning the radiator and painting the case day except the side panels!!
Stand-offs were made out of 5.25" locking rails and riveted on the case!!
I had to align the radiator to satisfy my ocd!! biggrin.gif



Next was painting the case, the motherboard tray and the rear i/o panel!!




When Black Mesa provides....gamma radiation!! biggrin.gif


Here is the rear i/o panel before it is painted!!



Here are the ieces painted and finalized using the plastic bag effect, sponge bag method and paint splash and achieved this!!
More than satisfying!! biggrin.gif









More updates soon when i get the silicon paste for creating the molds until then, Cheers!!
