    Welcome to my next project

    "ROG Carbine"


    [​IMG]



    The carbine is based on the "verc carbine" concept of Aaron de Leon,
    a 3D designer (hard surface modeling) already involved in the development of several games such as Star Citizen and Section 8.
    When I saw this concept, I realized immediately that I must build it.
    I immediately recognized a Pc in the carabiner, so followed also various drawings until I realized where the whole leads.
    Many pictures do not exist of this concept but since I adjust the model to a PC I had to ample improvise anyway
    .
    The goal is to combine the model with modern hardware without changing the appearance.

    As some may already know I have the same at the German Casemodding championship
    the first place occupies even though the work is not even completely completed.
    So here is the pre-release.
    I think it will still be exciting and I hope you like the worklog.

    So here is the first update:
    I have tried to document all the work but when looking at the photos I see many details that were not properly photographed.but I hope the photos speak for themselves.
    At the moment I have 260 pictures ;) :p

    First a board cut in the shape of the weapon
    [​IMG]

    then the essay above and below the middle barrel
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    now two ridges around the barrel to its extent to broaden.
    The groove is sawn with the circular saw to install all cables of the LEDs later
    [​IMG]

    now the first details
    [​IMG]

    and then two strips for the sides of the barrel
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Now I broadened the upper and lower barrel by another 5mm. The upper barrel I saw but later completely and build it from Plexiglas
    [​IMG]

    Now the first essays for the estuary. A groove is set with the top cutter
    [​IMG]

    and then sawn in the correct length
    [​IMG]

    and sandet in shape
    [​IMG]

    Now two MDF boards glued together
    [​IMG]

    and with the grooving cutter the width of the lower barrel milled out. Then cut into shape and ground.
    [​IMG]

    Now the next parts for this area
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Now the first aluminum parts
    [​IMG]

    Here the handle on the lower barrel is now provided with long holes and then bent
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    And here are the covers of the essays from the barrel
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    This was already the first update, in the next I start with the upper barral and thus the first Plexiglas work :)

    Hi,
    it's time again, my weekly update.

    At some point it had to be done, the water cooler on the VGA mount

    [​IMG]

    then I needed a bracket for the magazine, 4 x 22mm MDF cubes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the mount for the riser cable

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Monitors can also be connected via an angled HDMI adapter

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    now the top Cover
    5mm Plexi cut and bend

    [​IMG]

    glued with Akrifix R192

    [​IMG]

    more Plexi in 3mm.

    [​IMG]

    CPU - side

    [​IMG]

    VGA - side

    Pity with the 25 picture limit in some forums but they were already again.
    Then, I hope it was something teaching or not, next time it goes to the construction for the handle and the power supply.​

    Hi,

    For this I chose Multiplex,

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    a groove for the cable from the trigger

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :mrgreen:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    now I have made the grip by deep drawing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the trigger

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    left side the final shape from the trigger

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The final shape looks good but there is still a lot of details.

    Thx guys! ;)

    Heyho !


    now i Need extern usb ports


    [​IMG]

    for the cable

    [​IMG]

    these alu parts have made me really ready

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    bevor the paint job i set all holes for the tubes

    [​IMG]

    Loop complete,
    how you can see, you see nothing XD

    [​IMG]

    holder for the res

    [​IMG]

    Here the panel in front of the handle, so you can not look behind the motherboard or the VGA.
    Left a copy of the Northbridge cooler, for more symmetry in the rear area.

    [​IMG]

    the psu area

    [​IMG]

    more mdf covers

    [​IMG]

    the holes for the eps cable

    [​IMG]

    two old cabinet handles are exactly fitting

    [​IMG]

    these contours I created with key files

    [​IMG]

    The cable protection hoses are fixed everywhere with single-ear clamps and some aluminum has been adapted as veneer.

    [​IMG]

    for the other side two 8mm MDF stripes

    [​IMG]

    Power for the psu

    [​IMG]

    only now have I glued the handle to the gun

    [​IMG]

    an 8mm dowel for the good conscience

    [​IMG]

    How do you get a bent wire straight again?

    [​IMG]

    1. Cut the required length

    [​IMG]

    2.Fold the ends to better grasp them

    [​IMG]

    3. Screw the other end into a vice.
    Rule of thumb: turn the wire around its own axis per meter 6-8 times.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next comes the paint and the electrics

    Thank you for reading or viewing pictures.
    Until next time!
