This would suck. The totally flat screen? At the same height of your keyboard?

What´s not displayed in the picture is that the case has feed that elevate it a couple of centimeters, furthermore, it´s an older LCD panel, meaning that color does not change as much unless you have a very weird angle, which you wouldn´t aniway.

I also think you´re missing the point on the project :S but everyone´s entitled to their opinion

This is a beautiful piece of craftsman ship and would sell like crazy at any convention.

That's a wonderful idea, but I would also suggest checking in your local vicinity about any conventions coming up and emailing those who run the artist sections, your stuff is awesome!

No, it´s a slim htpc case meant for m-atx motherboards and low profile graphic cards : )

It wasn't much of the fall out theme, I like the way it's set up, monitor into tower, really sweet concept. I'm one for compact things. :D But I'll make sure to keep any eye out.

Well I do accept commisions, if that´s what you want it´s not to complicated to do again : )

Also if you like compact pcs, have a look at APASF on my profile (the steampunk one) believe it or not, it´s based on the very same chasis (original case) as the fallout one : )

As neat as they are, I'm rocking a desktop right now and with my lifestyle I think I need to upgrade to a laptop, so I can do photo work on the go. :/ If only laptops could have as much space as a desktop D:<

I have done laptops in the past, unfortunately, due to their design and structural weakness, not much more than a paintjob can be done to them which is why I normally stay away (they are also a huge pain in the rear taking them apart! :S) but I understand I own a laptop for the very same reason as you want one, a Desktop just isn´t usefull if you´re moving about all the time : )

awsome work. 1 question tho is how did you protect the pain on the keyboard and mouse. reason i ask is sometime back i moded my system and dispite using a mat varnish the paint still disapered in places of constant use.

:iconneonit:
neonit Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012  Professional Artist
Thank you!

That´s an excellent question. It all comes down to prep and type of paint. But the easiest and cheapest way to go around it is using Acrylic paint (without dissolvants) if you dont have a compressor and gun, a spraycan of the stuff will do.

So first you need acrylic primer, 2 coats of the stuff with sanding in between.
Second, 2-4 coats of color, depending on how detailed the keyboard is, remember the more coats you put the more you "fill in" so be carefull.
To finish 2 coats of matt or glossy lacquer (that´s more an aesthetics matter than anything else).

All three stages to be done with acryl based products and the surface has to be sanded and cleaned with alcohol first.

If done right, the surface will last as long as any factory painted surface : )

Absolutely fascinating modification! I love the paint job, and I especially love how the monitor is attached to the tower! Brilliant!

Thank you very much, the most challenging part was doing everything inside a week. The screen turned out to be easier than I though. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about modern screens. Older LCDs are quite simple inside, just one lcd panel, and 2 pcbs.

In any case, thank you! : )

Thank you again! Yes, I specialize in mod in a week projects : ) Most of the time was spent on paint effects, if you´re curious on pictures of the process, there´s a video showing the process:

I just watched the video and it made me appreciate the effort that much more! Painting the rust in? Punching the holes? GENIUS!

I'd love to get into this stuff, but how do you even start? How did you get going on this? Start small, work up?

That´s the great thing about worklogs and the videos of them, it makes it, for lack of a better word "real", not in the sense of trying to prove anything but in the sense of being able to see every step of the way and how something takes it´s final shape you know?

I would say like most of us do, there´s a series of big forums in which you can post your work (doesnt have to finished when you post, the whole idea of these forums is that you update your post as you progress, step by step, i.e. work in progress worklogs. A lot of people, if not most just visit these forums out of curiosity, most if not all the world famous mods come from these forums which does not mean that you will be ignored or not get helped if you´re a begginer, quite the opposite as I found a couple of years ago when I started. A couple that come to mind are bit-tech.net and overclockers.net, both websites are for all sorts of pc related stuff so you have to navigate their forums to the "worklogs" area, but some of the stuff there is trully amazing and the people will always be happy to help and give you info.

If you´d like a helping hand to start, you can read my tutorial project, it explains everything you need material wise and how to use it all in very deep detail. I actually posted it here on my journal:
[link]

Have a read over and I´ll always be happy to answer questions.

That said, I think the best way to start is not to think of a specific project, just get an old case, follow that tutorial in order to know how to prep it for paint, what kinds of paint you need etc and start doing little things, once you feel comftable with paint, try doing your own pc : )
