Cooler Master Scout 2 Camo Edition
 
Its been a crazy summer & fall , and has been a blast with my family and friends, but back into the garage i go for a few projects. First project is the New Cooler master Scout 2 case, Having a military name and theme on the box i am definitely going a camo theme

The case has a very sleek design and the Handle on top is great for lan gaming

I like the window, but since i will be watercooling i will be removing the fan grills and making it bigger

One would think growing up hunting a fishing i would be able to paint camo that wasnt the case lol . It took me three tries and several stencils before i begin to like the design .
sanded and Primed

Hey I'm lovin your paint job you did it well but I gotta say I am not a fan of that skull at all. Maybe it is just the nose I don't know.

What kind of hardware is planned for this build?

Touching up a few spots
