Hello friends, I hereby present to you my newest project.

In the next edition of Campus Party Brazil, I'll join be participate of Casemodders team to modify their models and display during the event. I will modify of a cabinet model COSMOS II.





The theme

The theme chosen for the modification of the cabinet is Akira. This anime is based on a very successful manga and is one of the most popular of all time. Created by Katsuhiro Otomo, is considered a classic cyberpunk style. It gave rise to an animated feature film of the same name, released in 1988.

Although it has been nearly 25 years of the release of the anime, the theme is still alive in the minds of many, both are frequent discussions in the possibility of becoming one day a Live Action movie by Hollywood.
Next year thinking about the birthday celebrations, I intend to explore the subject in order to honor that this was a cartoon that marked my childhood and for many people around the world.



Objectives

My goal is to apply techniques of painting and airbrushing, along the same lines of previous work carried out by me. Small changes in the structure of the cabinet, acrylic installation, lighting compatible and parts.

The colors used are based on the chosen theme, as well as accessories possess details that complement the package.

-------

Expect news soon, I hope you follow, comment and give suggestions, I will enjoy and appreciate if possible! :blush:

I researched picture on google and I did this drawing to imagine how it would look, one possible idea for the side is:



Here is the photo of the day he arrived, when I took him to my house:



These are pictures I took yesterday, a comparison of size of my previous project (Devil May Cry casemod) in Cosmos S and my new Cosmos II.















I was unaccustomed to carrying more weight, lately I was just using notebook...

Cables:



Come still a fan speed controller, I read that it controls the fan 135 mm fan and more three of the system, needless to say: I'm dying to connect it











in place:

It's difficult to choose art, mainly because I will not want to undo that cabinet (a second modification as with the DMC is out of the question), then after it's done I do not want to regret.
There are two images that are dominating my thoughts, the difficult is the fact of the side having spaces for ventilation...



This is the idea for acrylic:



Acrylic being cut and bent:



In place:



I had forgotten my camera at home, so I decided to do this with borrowed camera:



Then I went in the house of Miguel...



And we see cutting ideas ...



And we began to loosen the plastic frills:





Motherf *% #´¨ ... Sh"* double-sided tape ...



Making the lines ...



scratching:





And finalized: It now remains the plastic inside



Screens will be replaced by another before painting



My Christmas present early:



Tk's :D





































My project just got more fun ...







Cut the damn plastic:



Cutting corners



finally cut







Now missing the finish, I'll do that on tomorrow with putty to get a decent when open, and yesterday we did it:



the result





the mess



testing the hardware, 1 is little



2 is good ...



And...
