    Its been a crazy summer & fall , and has been a blast with my family and friends, but back into the garage i go for a few projects. First project is the New Cooler master Scout 2 case, Having a military name and theme on the box i am definitely going with a camo theme

    The case has a very sleek design and the Handle on top is great for lan gaming

    [​IMG]

    I like the window, but since i will be watercooling i will be removing the fan grills and making it bigger
    [​IMG]

    planning on removing one or both hard drive cages to make room for teh water cooling
    [​IMG]

    Time to break it all down

    [​IMG]

    using the scout insignia on the side panel

    Camo paracord just need in a few other builds this will be perfect.

    A little break for the holiday Back to modding, Adding another cut out on the case . using a new blade and u can make some nice tight cuts with this.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cm red

    [​IMG]

    but the finish looks pretty good
    [​IMG]

    Making room for the 240 rad for the front of the case, The optical drive bays made it too snug, i no longer use optical drives so one less bay wont hurt. so time to bring the dremal out

    [​IMG]

    Fits now

    Stayed tuned more to come!!

    Looks awesome! Only little thing I noticed, is the cut for the side window, looks a bit jagged. Thought about getting some sandpaper onto that?

    What about the "scars" over the Scout emblem? Is it part of the design? Just asking :)

    I kept wanting to give it some battle scars and i am still undecided.

    Modding tip ( I usually lay a towel down when working with a finish piece)
    and didnt notice when i was riviting back the bay drives that it was laying on scrapes of metal.

    I brush painted the spots before boxing up,

    still might scruff it up a bit when it comes back from Vegas

    In my humble opinion it look more like you butchered the job. Could think of a painted design with torn metal or bullet holets instead maybe.
