Thanks for looking in fella's, glad you like it!
Ond are you going to connect the side moldings from the inside?
What are the small holes on the right side for?
Correct, I'll duplicate the holes on the other side for the moldings to screw into from the inside. I have yet to create the matching top molding as per the concept drawings, once the painting of the shell is done I'll start on that.
Here's how the blue paint went on. Expensive little rattle cans of modellers paints but well worth it. The color in the second image is closer to the real thing, blue/violet which is a close match to the controls color.
Here's the guts I've chosen, the smallest motherboard and PS I could find with a nice mount for an SSD drive on the back of the Motherboard. Speakers are just parts ratted from a small Logitech sub and satellites I had lying around.
I'm going to use the on-board graphics card which should be fine. The unit will run a small selection of classic vertical games. The fans are small 80mm (3") ones, gives you an idea of how miniature the other components are! It will be a few day's till the next update. I need to let the paint dry and then paint the front in dark grey. The finish will be as applied from the can, I'm not after a mirror finish on this, so no multiple coats with endless wet sanding. The paint does go on very smooth though!
