Adept I

Project Reactor

I completed this mod late last year. I typically do scratch build mods, so building in a pre-existing case, and one with glass on both sides no less, really took me out of my comfort zone. I actually found it to be much more difficult than the elaborate mods I have built in the past. But it turned out pretty great and I learned some glass etching skills along the way.

The below point of interest was built using a metal electrical box, and the components of a radiation detector.
Behind the white piece, I installed a a red flickering LED.

The yellow nuclear graphic was painted using a stencil that I custom made myself.

The image below is a picture of the actual core from a nuclear reactor.
I printed the image on heavyweight matte paper, so that the lights would not reflect on the image.

Only the edges of the front gill were painted yellow, which gives it a really nice industrial look.

This mod won 3rd place in the PDXLAN Case Mod Contest in the Fall '22 event.

Hope you like it!

Very nice indeed.  You have the talent to win, that's for sure.  What components did you use?
