Introduction

cub.jpg

Hello I'm WolfandAngel also know as wolfie. I started modding a few years ago with a very basic mod. As I got more experienced I tried more difficult and complex mod, with my latest mod Sidewinder. I am 18 and still go to school. I've got my exams soon so there might be some long gapes in between updates.
This is my fifth project and it was it will develop a bit like the Sidewinder. If you've read the log you'll know that I started the mod with a render of the mod. Well this project will be totally different I was trying to make renders and sketch up but the way I want to make the form it's not within my ability. If you want to know a bit about the planning look here. One very big thing I will continue from Sidewinder is the "prototype" thing. Because I have virtually no model only ideas. So I plan on making a few prototype to see what works and what doesn't.
This is gonna be a small case so I will use a ITX board and a small PSU (SFX12V) as case material I will use carbon fabric. The form is supposed to look a bit like a fish or shark with some sharp edges in it.

I've been working on the other side for the last days but I can get the basic shape but not the way I want it so I will probably redo this side. Anyway let me know what you think.

Oh can you please tell me if you want me to put in music or just leave it blank.

After my latest failed mold I made a new one, that I'm very happy with. My idea was to make "mini" fins that are wavy compared to the sidewinder ones and probably only two on each side instead down the middle.

IMG_1023.jpg

A lot of filling,sanding and a few layers of paint this is what I got:
The paint is so that after the body filler was sanded the epoxy couldn't get through the mold wax.I also applied some "Film release agent" it's kind of like a liquid foil that should help releasing the mold from the carbon body.

mmmmmm carbon fiber drool.gif
I loved your last mod, very interested to see what you come up with this time.

Will you be using acrylic as the internal structure or will it be entirely out of carbon fiber?

Probably carbon and aluminum.

Well quick teaser(rough cut) , before I sand it and apply a another layer of resin

Do you have any sketch about how will it look like when finished or so?
I am really interested, but I didn't get it so far to be honest.
