    Case Mod Project: "Tribute to SERENITY firefly series"







    This case mod will be a tribute to the "firefly" Sci-fi series and SERENITY movie. I will draw my inspiration from interior shots of the "firefly" ship. Imagining if the PC was field equipment used by the characters. The case I'll be using is Corsair's 400R mid tower. Here is their product page, http://www.corsair.com/pc-cases/carb...ower-case.html



    Made switch box for mounting a pair of fighter pilot toggle switches, this will be mounted on the top handle of the corsair 400R



    Bending toggle switch box



    Switch plates for Red Fighter Pilot Switches, http://www.mnpctech.com/spdprtToggle.html







    Stay tunes, I'll be starting on the side panels and adding more features to the switch box....

    Thanks for tuning and commenting everybody! Yes, I'm juggling between projects again...lol ...in preparation for CES, January 10 -14 , and I'll be there as well, showing some of my products and previous work. So please let me know if you're attending, so I can finally meet you in person, esp you, Darth!

    Ok, back to this project. Sorry! to anyone anticipating this to look like the ship, or see a model of the serenity glued on top. My tribute is inspired by visual elements from both the movie and series that appeal to me, in particular "Our Mrs reynolds" episode, which has great scenes of Serenity's bridge. (and christina hendricks) To me, the charm of the Serenity is the mixture of Old West and industrial tech, and sometimes these elements look hobbled together. You can tell the Set builders delved into Ebay for salvaged Electronic and Ham Radio parts. I also love how everything is distressed from use and weathered. The ship's control panel is a mess...lol



    Yes, the circa 60s Muscle car hood scoop style panel hump is being removed.. btw: Great for cable management behind MB tray.

    I can already tell that it's going to be a blast "managing" the cables in such a way that is both effective but looks like messy patchwork!
