Batman : Arkham City CES 2012 Finished Pictures
My oringinal Idea for the case mod, was to re mod this NZXT Vulcan micro-atz case all i was going to do was Batman etching on the window for my 7 year old son, Just a little weekend project. But then i started getting a few more ideas and as i started looking at it.
I very thankful for Biostar, Intel and NZXT . With out there support these are just visions on paper. I showed my friend at Boistar the progress of teh case and he ask to showcase it in Vegas for CES.
I started working on the side panel first to replace it with plexi.
making the window opening bigger with a dremal tool
all is left is to is a few places to File.
Next up to see how it look on the case
removing the rivots and the disassemblyhas begun
6 differnt grades of sand paper for the finish
Ok brought out the heavy duty paint stripper!!!! Yea thats a airplane on the can, alwasy use proper Ventilation and a mask or you will feel like your flying !!!
You know its done its job when it starts to peal off
60 Grit !!!
And when the sanding is done
repainted the top fan cover to a metallic silver
Decided to change the front panel a bit and add a little Batman touch to it.
Fan Cut out
I will be re-using the orginal mesh from the side panel for the front
I had some left over anodized aluminium from my other super secret project
With a scroll Saw and a file you can do amaizing things
all thats is left is have the Rez cut out and add power button and a little polishing
Alot more too do
Thank you again for checking the project out.
Its all starting to come together down the Final stretch before CES. Primer and paint
Decided to cut the top out for a place to fill the watercooling
More Sanding to get the annodized marks removed
Side panel was next , 50 grit,100, 150, 400, 1000, 1500 and 2000 for a finish
Interior of teh Side Panal Black with metal flakes
Thanks for looking
Happy New year !!!! Back to Modding
Finishing painting the frame
Started assembly Case feet on first
Adding the rad
Thanks Db for the idea of adding some lights behind the bat should also cast a shadow
