    Its been a crazy summer & fall , and has been a blast with my family and friends, but back into the garage i go for a few projects. First project is the New Cooler master Scout 2 case, Having a military name and theme on the box i am definitely going a camo theme

    The case has a very sleek design and the Handle on top is great for lan gaming

    [​IMG]

    I like the window, but since i will be watercooling i will be removing the fan grills and making it bigger
    [​IMG]

    planning on removing one or both hard drive cages to make room for teh water cooling
    [​IMG]

    Time to break it all down

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    using the scout insignia on the side panel

    [​IMG]

    Camo paracord just need in a few other builds this will be perfect.

    One would think growing up hunting a fishing i would be able to paint camo that wasnt the case lol . It took me three tries and several stencils before i begin to like the design .
    sanded and Primed

    a few touches up and it will be finished

    A little break for the holiday Back to modding, Adding another cut out on the case . using a new blade and u can make some nice tight cuts with this.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cm red

    [​IMG]

    but the finish looks pretty good
    [​IMG]

    Making room for the 240 rad for the front of the case, The optical drive bays made it too snug, i no longer use optical drives so one less bay wont hurt. so time to bring the dremal out

    [​IMG]

    Fits now
    [​IMG]

    Stayed tuned more to come!!

    That was a great job.. :thumbup:
    Just an idea...i think the fan blade will look interesting if paint with Army Green or something..since the camo itself in the Army style..:)
