PROJECT NQPN1 (09 Mod Contest Entry)

Postby petoscal on Tue Jul 14, 2009 1:45 pm

Greetings people
I'm petoscal from Mexico and I want to participate in the contest with this mod (my guess is that the category it's unique since it's not a COOLERMASTER case :oops: ) that I've been working for like two months, I'm just a noob in the mod world and I'm just practice my skills since this is my second mod I want to compete because I always said "If you play with the best at least you're going to become good" :lol: .

So i'm planning to use like 4 fans of CM and the Hyper 212 CPU cooler and maybe some cables (I'll post the photo when the parts arrive) I have a video in youtube with the first part of the mod, nothing too fancy just some cuts in the case, but this is what I've done so far.

this is the basic concept, but I'm going to change a few things for the contest
Image

the cuts to the windows
Image

Image

and the top panel

Image
Image

Image

not too much indeed but I hope it will be finish on time

Cheers!

Thanks PaPang
It's good to be here

I just bought some parts form Coolermaster for my mnod, still waiting for de cpu cooler and more fans

Image

Also I want to put the power button and the activity Led and power LED, on top of the case, so this is my first attempt but still need to improve (and a LOT :lol: )

Image

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA *sigh* If only... :?

Well If I want to be like Bill I have to work very hard and enhance my skills like... A lot!! :lol:

Anyway, I've been working in my skills with the bondo, and it's not that easy, but for the front I want to looks with a curve and the only thing that came to my mind was to use a piece of rope that I have

Image

Hot glued

Image

and layers and layers of bondo

Image

Image

Also I had to change the design and the exhaust tubes are going to be just in one side I used an old PVC pipe and cut it for this

Image

Image

and that's if for now I'm going to post more maybe next week (I hope)

Well, any comments will be welcome, thanks for watching

Quick thinking on using the rope to help on the form. You are going to be the Bondo Master after this mod, for sure! Are you still going to use the Mazda badge? We've got to pick up the pace, time is creeping up on us pretty fast. Looking good but you are like me, as you advance, your design keeps evolving. Will be good to see what we end up with, heh-heh.


Cheers & godspeed on the project

Come on mate, we have to finish even if it is for the pride of Mexico! Less than a month to finish and then to the competition! It is going to be tough, be I didn't expect less from a global contest. We just have to chalk this up to experience, and go to the next one better prepared and with improved mods. If we don't make a good show, we will not get any sponsorships for sure. And post more and more frequently so more people can see your mod.

So ratones verdes no more! ¡Si se puede, Si se puede!


Cheers/Saludos

That rope routine, wah - i learn again... thanks bro!

But no, not yet, I will not thank you anew if you quit...

I myself consider this as my first on any modding event (never locally, this one my first and international?!)

it was PaPang key that made me walk and work like a robot, that was really good for me and never thought of that!!!

now, even it is hard to consider i could finish my project, I will be sharing my own tricks and tips on my worklog.

the rope thing was a trick!!!

This is I consider a very friendly competition. nothing compares. come on petoscal, lets walk the road!!!

Thanks guys for your support, I'm not quitting and I know that I'm going to finish my mod, just been through some problems, (i'm moving out to my in-laws) and maybe i'm not going to finish as good as I want to, but then again, this is my second mod, I barely had beginning this mod and papang convinced me from entering the contest just to show that in Mexico are modders too, in many levels! there is the pros like PaPang and the newbies like... me :lol:

I'm starting to paint the case but with a few rookies mistakes, so I'm going to post only the final paint job (even if is not the best)

Cheers! :cheers:

Hey Petoscal, update here bro! I know we were caught up with time, definitely not the time spans we are used to at home. I will be closing with a few less things that I would have liked to do but such are these contest--they have a closing date! We will have to conform ourselves with what our peers see as good or bad on our projects but we have to finish to get to that stage. Finish we must in the best shape we can manage.

However, you can't deny it was a good and positive experience. Friendly "competitors"(so many masters!), an easy going staff, a noble/graceful and tolerant Admin. (yAu) and I am learning a bunch of great techniques to use later myself! It is good to know that true modding is alive and kicking in other parts of the world. We will have a lot to talk about back home on our forum for a long time!

As my team mate, please cheer up and show the rest the best of you! Have fun, like me, it really pushes me on!

Cheers and Saludos Mate!
