i decided that seeing as i will certainly not plot and stick the names on this one, that they have to be cut out and back lighted.

RAGNAR`S and REVENGE both have 7 letters so i was able to do this by having each word carved out of the side inner walls.

i picked a font that looks like the overall design would appreciate.

this is the reset botton, hidden and can be pressed with the extras mast which is clasped on to the main deck. the viking longboats always had an extra mast for emergencies.

thanks guys, am glad it appeals.

 

so, of course the next logical steps, but boring for the documentation as usual were sanding staining sanding staining.

PICT0437_zps6oxwpxy0.jpg

PICT0439_zps0cva9q1b.jpg

 

then the :) hit the fan,,,,,,,,,,damn...... broke ragnar in two...

PICT0440_zpsndaio0hx.jpg

 

the good thing was that it of course snapped in one of the grooves so i could smart repair it, while using the the CM psu as a weight while it dried.

PICT0441_zps1o2hfnlp.jpg

 

the whole build was stained brown and airbrushed dark with black in all the grooves to give it a more oldish look. by the way i used printer ink as stain in my airbrush.

PICT0011_zpsbgz6vici.jpg

these fan covers are made of mesh with which we usually hold back leaves and dirt in drain pipes, they look like iron casted.

PICT0014_zpsyy4ik6p1.jpg

PICT0010_zps3kqcrlt3.jpg

i then stuck the iron cast fittings parts on. and again used all i could find as weights for it.

PICT0017_zpsikf1fspi.jpg

PICT0013_zpsphtskxka.jpg

this build only has white leds, the fans too only have white, didnt want any colors which the vikings didnt have.

 

the leds for power and hdd are hidden behind these perfum bottle bottoms, which when lighting look like ancient glass.

PICT0018_zpswt0v5j3z.jpg

the leds look blueish in the pics, but are actually white.

a special thanks to my infant sponsors, my niece and nephew for this unused nappy. itll make a great sail because the structure is visible. the sail will be on the swing arm and can be adjusted to see or not to see the mainboard and processor.

PICT0026_zpsgmwdgdaj.jpg

 

i spanned and stuck in onto the wooden frame i made

 

PICT0029_zpssp2k7sjx.jpg

PICT0030_zpsndd8vzm7.jpg

 

now we can already see the seems which should look tighter like in real sails.

PICT0031_zpsrnomiajm.jpg

PICT0033_zps9vazvbif.jpg

 

i dirtied it up a bit with the airbrush.

PICT0035_zpsnsapi2u3.jpg

PICT0034_zpsptjf7ipz.jpg

PICT0042_zpssotauei7.jpg

then i made a viking logo for spraying on, a D and an M for their initials.

PICT0044_zpstatvxh4u.jpg

PICT0045_zpsniwnxdn2.jpg

 

side fans and speakers.

PICT0049_zpsd7t4wyr4.jpg

 

the stainless steel plate is behind the RAGNARS REVENGE logo inside to reflect the light back out.

fitting and sticking all the details on. all the iron looks are made by mixing up water based and solvent based paints. they dry in differnet intervals and hence mix funny. making it look like metal, if you take the right colors. a very uneven stressed look.

PICT0006_zps41upzmos.jpg

PICT0007_zpsn6yzx5oj.jpg

i stuck a piece of white ply into the shells of the bottle bottoms and stuck the leds a little bit further back. hence when you look at them from the front, they look as if they are 3d.

PICT0009_zpsacyikgxn.jpg

Hi guys, well what should I say, the CM powered RAGNAR`S REVENGE scratch build was then complete.

the only thing i did after that was install some northman music for demos and also blackened the interfaces and conection ports at the back.

 

It was one of my most exciting builds so far because it proves that modern technology can live in harmony with middle aged viking technology.

yes ladies and gentlemen, this is what computers looked like a 1000 years ago. :evil4: 

 

just for the record, RAGNARS`S REVENGE went to the annual German Casemod Championship last August 2015 at the Gamescom in Cologne. Veni, Vidi, Vici.

It won all 3 possible German Champion titles, best, scratch build, best electro mechanics

as well as the public vote as the Gamescoms most spectacular casemod. WOW!!!

 

I hope you like it too :-)

here are the final pics.

rmember the blue connection ports at the back are now black...

at the end are a few videos explaining it.
