This build is our first Entry for the CM Modding Contest 2017


It´s based on a CM Mastercase and it will be built for our little Sister.

She was in need of a new System and her last mod is also several years old so we decided that the time has come for something new.

And after a few discussions with her, we finally found a theme for this build; which is Alice in Wonderland / Alice Madness.


So, this time it starts with a grin.....

As announced, we continued our work with the sidepanel. So we first took the sidepanel of and made a quick pencil drawing on it....just to  discuss the exact position & shape of the window....

.....after that we could print out a piece of fence which we will mount on the sidepanel to give the complete mod a bit more structure....
