Default 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

planning on removing one or both hard drive cages to make room for teh water cooling

Time to break it all down


using the scout insignia on the side panel

Camo paracord just need in a few other builds this will be perfect.

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

black then brown

beige

a few touches up and it will be finished

Started cutting out the Guns and skull out of plexi. I ended up redoing the skull


testing the position

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?
