Default HP Blackbird look-alike

I know more of you heard about the HP's blackbird gaming pc. Its a nice case for me, but one of my friend has been very inspired on HP blackbird. And he made a design like the blackbird.









Very cool! I wish someone can work like this here in montreal...

That looks awesome! better than the blackbird itself might I say! Does he plan on selling these cases?

Sucks that HP wont sell the case separately.

Your friends case looks way better than the HP BB case. I really found nothing interesting about the HP case or any other cases they release with there computers.

That's an awesome case. It looks a lot better than the HP blackbird. You should get him to take more pics of it.

Well as an update, the project is still in progress, some pics are taken already

Looking at the drivebay is very unique as he use the top space for it:




The Feet is made in aluminum plates (and some steel i guess!?), welded and bended:





And the looks of the back
