Seriously though, all of those meticulous details all add up to make this build trule something unique.

No progress to share today, but my friend Stu came by to share his Dota 2 PC build. A combination of a scratch build and PC case mod. He used Fractal Design's NODE 304 as the core inside this amazing wood crafted treasure chest,

@Christophe, Yes, I share it when it;'s finished, Thank you!

 

@MEC-777 Thank you for commenting, wow, look at those front brake rotors glow! 

 

If you're looking to add some rust to your build, I used a product/technique that you might be interested in with the build I'm currently working on. :)

@Mnpctech Indeed, if you want to add some “wear” to the build, then I would highly recommend checking out @MEC-777‘s build. Especially the most recent painting results are astonishing and look incredibly real (to be honest... it’s actually real... ;):P )

similar to shiny

 

Then I definitely subscribe to that thread :D

The Shiny tribute PC is truly amazing, so I'm curious how you are going to try to top that one :P

with lots and lots of machined aluminum parts....haha

 

My apologies for the lack of updates. I've had to start another project build for a client. Paying gigs keep the lights on, so Max will need to temporarily park the Falcon. I may bring it out and share a new update for mental break if time allows. I will be starting a worklog for this new build once the NDA is lifted, I think it will be a real spectacle once it's finished.

Thank you for being patient with me. I had to pause progress so i could get the exodus pc finished in time for their launch and currently working build for DiRT Rally 2.0 giveaway. Once thats finished, I can hopefully (sigh) get back to this project. Personal projects always get halted so I can pay the bills.

Thank you guys! I had to shelve progress on this build to get two other commissioned builds finished
metro exodus PC, https://youtu.be/Mz6ozE1X62s?t=54
Dirt rally PC, https://youtu.be/KFAfyxdKBTE?t=51

 

Took everything out last night to re-evaluate where I left off on this project. The last stage was mounting the EK reservoirs to emulate the rear fuel tanks in Max's Interceptor. I'm debating about making a roof line over the middle section of the case or hood with blower cut-out to cover the front. I know either would involve several hours of trial and error fitting. That time could be re-focused on progression of other thing on the build. That's a perfect example of being a victim to your own project scope creep.
