Finally some A-TACS time!!

Got a roll of A-TACS hydrographic film this morning..




Nothing magical about this horrible looking over pan, but that's where the magic happens.. ;)




Not the best result after applying the matte clear cote .. :puke:
Seems like it desolved the film!



Anyway, no take backsies or do-overs so I used a scotch brite dish scrubber and some Tamiya hobby paint to give it a weathered look

Think it's the best outcome of a bad situation..

Not too much to show so far this week, started with the GPU block and redid it 3 times due to what I can only describe as OCD...

Very very nice, and i like that fact that you just went with your ram sinks and didn't try to redo. Like my art teacher used to say, There are no mistakes or erasing in art!, you my friend are a great example of this.

Hi everyone.. It's been one very busy week so not much to show in regards to results, but I have done some dipping..

Got a CPU block and a 240mm rad to fit in the bottom of the case, obviously they had to get a bit of love!! :loved:

First I had to do some masking to make sure I dont get the base coat everywhere..








My very tidy working area ..




A massive roll of hydrographic film..




Tools of the trade.




Measured and framed..




Had to get a larger dipping tank so I borrowed my sons toy box ;)




Some aerosol activator..




Here you can see the film starting to dissolve from the activator..




The results!!

Today I would Like to give a massive thanks to Joseph (Greybeard) and Corsair for sending me this amazing ....... box :D





... which contains an awesome little addition to this project..




The Corsair Vengeance M65 Gaming Mouse..




Looks wise this mouse is absolutely stunning and it feels very comfortable in the palm of your hand.. On the top it has the scroll wheel and a response time selector which lets you choose between 1ms, 2ms, 4ms or 8ms..




On the side it has a "Sniper" button that when pressed slows the response of the mouse down to make precise movement easy as pie..







On the bottom it has removable weights so you can select a weight that is most comfortable for you..




Been using it for a few days now and I must say, it's outstanding!

Nice work on the project! Too bad you weren't in the states! I own a water transfer printing/hydro dipping business, Montana Hydro Image, and would've been glad to help ya out oin this project before school started...now I gotta step back a little and let my biz partner take over the bulk of it. That ATACS pattern is sort of a pain to dip with at first but like all patterns you can figure out the little details to what makes each one dip well.

I'm honestly not usually too much into the military themes but you have done some very nice and clean work and I also just completed a build in that same case a month or two ago...was super easy to work with and perform cable management along with being tough and easy to carry and gain access to.

Overall very nice work! Thanks for sharing! :toast:

Thanks for the positive comments guys.. Kursah, I haven't tried any other film yet, but ATACS is definitely tricky to get a perfect result..

Here's a small teaser..



Will hopefully have some more updates tomorrow...

Small update..

Today I had time to play with some plexiglas..




Chopped up bits..




Tools used: fretsaw, needle files and the coolest looking duct tape ever.. :lovely:








Some more chopped bits..




With a "sandy" base coat..



Dipped and weathered..








Quickly fitted, just for good measure.. ;)

Finally got a bit of an update... :)

It was about time I got the case filled with something so I started with the rads and tube res.. The tube res is by no means set to go there, just playing around with some ideas at the moment..

Anyway, here we go..













.....and the bigger picture.. ;)

I must say this is quite impressive. It's got the same precision and attention to detail as the l3p Desk mod had when he was posting all of his updates. Good work.
