Nice! The case exterior is looking better than some of your WC components!

As good as those pics look, I get the feeling it looks better in person. So hard to capture a good paint job in a picture...

OH, sweet heavenly bliss !! finaly some one has said it ! lol
your right... it is SO SO hard to capture a true likeness of this kind of thing.
i know ' the camera never lies' but in some cases it really does.
the amount of comments ive had about the 'awful, ghastly' Red that my PC insides are painted in is unreal !. it looks disgusting ont he pictures. but i just cannot photograph it to look liek it does in Real Life.



Jake:
thanks i dont really know how long ive been properly airbrushing, but i started model making when i was 13, probobly picked up an airbrush when is was 15 ish ( for model making purposes - but surisingly, the airbrush is now my sworn enemy when model making ! old school brushes give one hell of e batter result ! ) and im 18 now. i think most of my skill has developped withign the last 2-3 years though. it was more just discovering new materials, beifgn able to afford better equipment. it all works towards better artowork to be honest.

Thanks again guys.
im gonna try and get all these pannels polished ASAP. but for anyone whose done it by hand before, you will know its an absolute nightmare ! my arms already fel like theyre gonna drop off !

wow sounds like you've been at it for a while then. Another question for you... are you worried about the paint getting messed up from heat on the waterblock?

not at all.

the waterblocks generaly dotn get that hot. id hazzard a guess that a cars pannles would get ALOT hotter than my water blocks will ever get.
remember, these components are painted in exactly the same way as your car or bike ( well maybe after a re spray, or repair as the paint cars with all sorts in the factories :| )

so its very tough stuff, although ive taken a chip it of my pump wjhen a grinded it against my soundcard :'( ... a few times

some paints are sensitive to heat. but not many are sensitive to the low temps were dealing with here. ( lol then again it is an intel CPU ha ha )

.......I'm pretty sure the words I want to use to describe your work, are not permitted on this forum.


That is an amazing talent you have, and applying it to custom rig paintjobs, is wicked on soooo many different levels.

Full props and respect from me to you guy. That's amazing.
