No progress to share today, but my friend Stu came by to share his Dota 2 PC build. A combination of a scratch build and PC case mod. He used Fractal Design's NODE 304 as the core inside this amazing wood crafted treasure chest, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hYlaiO09no

I was wondering how that scoop was going to turn out after paint. I had my doubts that it was going to match up to the engine and look like it belonged, but wow... you pulled it off again. Very well done!

Thank you!

My apologies for the lack of updates. I've had to start another project build for a client. Paying gigs keep the lights on, so Max will need to temporarily park the Falcon. I may bring it out and share a new update for mental break if time allows. I will be starting a worklog for this new build once the NDA is lifted, I think it will be a real spectacle once it's finished.

I had paused progress on this build so i could get this metro exodus https://youtu.be/Mz6ozE1X62s?t=55 finished in time for their launch. Just started working with the new cooler master SL600M case for DiRT Rally 2.0 game theme build. Interesting chassis layout thats confused most of the YT reviewers. Can anyone think beyond the normal ATX layout anymore? Most of the reviewers ignored the multiple cooling options the case offers. So, once that's finished, I can hopefully (sigh) get back to this project. Personal projects always get halted so I can pay the bills.

I plan to get back on this Mad Max build, as it was supposed to replace my old shipping PC months ago*



Here's another chance to win a build of mine, just announced today by Cooler Master, https://landing.coolermaster.com/computex2019/campaign/

Took everything out last night to re-evaluate where I left off on this project. The last stage was mounting the EK reservoirs to emulate the rear fuel tanks in Max's Interceptor. I'm debating about making a roof line over the middle section of the case or hood with blower cut-out to cover the front. I know either would involve several hours of trial and error fitting. That time could be re-focused on progression of other thing on the build. That's a perfect example of being a victim to your own project scope creep.
