  1. This brings back memories ! *grabs popcorn*
  2. Well it hit facebook pretty hard in the last 48 hours hahahaha
  3. Yes it will be at CES and at the MSI booth. Watch out, I have been informed a squadron of troopers is standing watch ;-)
  4. While I was so busy with getting stuff done on the YAZI some pictures were made by Mortum AWESOME Greeble shot! Nice shot of the Aluminum Alloy / RVS stand .. Its easy to forget how big she is lol ..
  5. Yeah especially with the thick fibers. They go where they want to. Tricks, yeah i will sand them a little to make them glow and provide a subtle white light in the chamber for when looking from the side. Also cutting them to size with a finetip solder iron is good. That creates a sphere at the end which has a nice round light pattern.
  6. Thanks man, yeah actually for a ship this size this is not a lot of fiber. I have seen Randy Coopers Imperator for example with 3000 fiber points.
  7. So here is part II I managed to get the hull painted two hours before the scheduled pickup for the CES. Quick dry before the next layer. The weather was helping a lot! Got something very special planned for the radgrills. 3D printed red HDGlass radgrills! The front in this picture is missing due to change in plans at the last minute. Love this picture, she looks so dark and grimey here ! I could not build the loop due to possible issues at customs. This must be one of my favorite views. Will look sweet with the loop installed. And finally with the lights on !! Had to dismantle all the hardware inside so again no issues at customs. Made sure that it was very well strapped down and covered up .. Bye bye baby! And there you have it. From cradle to grave a complete log of how I built this first version! Hope you enjoyed watching as much as I enjoyed building her! On to the next one! Regards Sander aka ASPHIAX
  8. "YAZI" - Venator Class Star Destroyer The BIG finale part 1 Ok so here is the big finale (wel part 1 of it at least) Due to the fact that MSI asked if they could showcase the YAZI at the International CES 2016 in Las Vegas the whole time table changed. I am very strict op planning, its the only way to get stuff done fast, but this was ridiculous. The call came in about a week before the cutting of the aluminum, hence the reason why Pascal and I worked untill 3 am to get it sorted. I proved not to be the last day I was up untill late ! Here we go: Started with the always nice smelling epoxy work on the tower Then it was off to the dirty room for paint, got a nice anthracit paint. The pictures dont do it justice, its darker and less brown. Quick test fitting And finally the last of the about 300 holes! With the holes done, it was time for the greeble basecoat. The detail just popps out with this coat. And a quick test fitting, sure looks good in aluminum But thats not the plan. So gave it a healthy coat And then a good black matte paintjob With the black coat on I could finally start to epoxy the greebles onto the side hull Meanwhile : That was the first box of 8 kg PLA, onto the next one! Decision time, should i paint the greebles also in the anthracit coat? So happy with the anthracit, it really has excellent licht action properties I love doing test sessions lol Houston we have a problem! That was the last of the 50 meters of fiberoptic cabling ... Waiting for the fiber, I put myself to the next design challenge the motherboard tray and I/O backwall. I just love waking up to fresh new custom parts Ahh the joys of fiberoptic cabling. It wants to go in any way but the way you want it .. But ... the force is strong ... Poor mans glue clamp, well actually you can buy a lot of clamps for this grand 1200 watt powerhouse by Thermaltake! Also installed the rest of the lighting for the tower. Someone asked my what happened to my old build the USS EURISKO. Well its standing next to my work pc acting as a side table lol This looks just too cool not to share Working 12 to 16 hours a day takes it toll .. Installed the fans back into their housing. These are the original fans for the build 2 years ago. Try finding a decent 92mm fan these days ... I discovered a neat trick while glueing the 3D printed PLA. You can cut into just one or 2 of the layers and bend it precisely Me working the very last of the fibers, will be glad when this part is over .. The hull needed a little old fashioned styrene love I wish I still had my workshop, space runs out quick with my builds! Me working the epoxy .. Darth practising his one-liners .. And there you have it, the result of the small ModMarathon ... Post Project Carnage .. And that was it for part 1 , stay tuned for part 2 and 3! Have a good one!
  9. I am sorry for the lack of updates from my side There has been so much work done in the last few days but I need every minute I can get .. Because the YAZI will be at the International CES 2016 in Las Vegas. Here is the transport box for it ..
  10. Good point bro, thanks! Meanwhile in the dirty room .. First light ... Lightning !
  11. In the meantime ... The final loop has been found! Inside the case I will be mounting several 3d printed PETG coolant tube guiders and supports, VGA and I/O space and some decoration. You know when you have spent to much time in 3D when you start sketching it only also. Only 300 left to solder Sander ... Pfew ...
  12. Awesome build man! I have 2 Q30's here all thought out but no funding lol. Love the lines on yours.
