Project Hunchback

This pc was build with Mechwarrior in mind. The client plays the game and he wanted something in that particular vein.
The chassis itself is a rare thing Thermaltake has gotten right, because it was AWE INSPIRING to look at even without all the modding i did to it. It's also one of the easiest modern cases i've ever worked with. even it was a closed case, the motherboard plate and front fan mount both come out easily and were easy to put back in.
Had a lot of fun building it.

This is also, as you can see from my other builds, my first project with a custom water loop, and I have to say, i knocked it out of the park(aside from the catastrophic seal failure i'd forgotten to check).

I used plexiglass to form an armature around the top and front panels, extending the canopy about 2.5 inches, and the rear of the top panel by about an inch. Then i applied self hardening clay to the top of it, to make armour, using the back of a pen to make battle damage!

I let it set for a day, covered with plastic wrap, just enough to form some drying cracks, and then i covered the whole panel with 3 coats of truck bed liner, filled the cracks with more clay, applied super glue to that, and then let it set for another day.

The paint i used was a a can of flat black, then a couple cans of differing colors of gray to make urban camo. and I painted the battle damage with liquid silver paint(used for gilding).
