The Coolermaster's V8 logo was GONE IN 60 SECONDS!

The center portion was replaced Round Modders Mesh
Image


1/8 thick acrylic riser
Image

manifold air intake hose made from plastic wire loom, heated and bent
Image

roughly 3/16" tall manifolds made from modeling clay
Image

Next up, making 12, intake pipes! :D
Image


My "worm chorus line" is starting to morph in to intake pipes. The next step is applying more clay to join them to the manifolds. From there, acrylic primer, then a coat of silver "manifold" colored paint, then off to mnpctech's master painter, Brad Galvin to have intricate details like the Ferrari text on the red covers painted.

Image

The pipes will be smoothed over with another application of clay.
Image

A little more sanding, and it's ready for paint details :thumb:
Image

Hand painting the intakes has commenced. Using custom vinyl film stencil made on plotter for "Ferrari"
Image


I wonder if Coolermaster would recognize it?

You know, this is a major coincidence. Last night, before I came on the forums, I saw a program that actually toured the factory in Italy where the 599 was made, and went through how they built these cars. Everything from the foundry where they make the castings for the motors, to the track where they test them before they get delivered to customers. I came here and saw this and promptly lol'd.

Nice mod, BTW. I think I just got some idea's for an after-my-wedding build.

Man, I don't has to worry about that. She doesn't mind me buying stuff as long as I do it smart. I haven't built a new machine in ages anyway, so I'm due. I have yet to have her say no to anything, so long as we have the cash and it's presented properly. :twisted:

I'm sorry, but I've just come to expect more from you guys. Honestly, this is the sloppiest mod I've seen you guys do. I really do expect better from you guys, considering all the stuff you've done before. This thing is majorly lacking.

That's because the wedding hasn't happened yet.

What do you consider sloppy in this, it matches the engine extremely well.

I dismantled Silverstone TJ07. We're painting it 2005 Ferrari F430 "Roso Corsa" Red

Removing the internal core
Image

I love the single piece external construction.
Image

I'm not doing anything to the removable MB tray, but wanted to post it anyway. These steel trays are by far the best I've ever seen used. Usually MB trays are flimsy aluminum.

Cooler mod inspires full case mod? Good stuff!

Primarily the lack of fine sanding before painting, the actual painting itself, in other words, the lack of detail. We've all come to expect more from these guys, considering the ubermods they've done in the past. They're very talented people, and this, well, this is just sloppy and rushed. For Pete's sake, they just globbed silver paint on the "hoses" to represent clamps, and it looks horrible. I've painted model engines better, and I suck at it, mainly from lack of experience with them. Take your time, try to get as much detail out of it as you possibly can, and if you can't eak out any more, then you've done all you possibly can. This is not one of those cases, it's just a globby slop of paint on a once-beautiful heatsink cover. I sure hope the chassis is better.

Thanks for the great feedback everybody.

Can you please tell if the HD version of the V8 cooler's video lags for you?
