Muv Luv PC build

8 posts in this topic

So still a work in progress, maybe another 2 weeks and it will be complete just looking for some advice help

anyway I felt like doing a pc build for the Muv luv US release to bring to this years Quakecon in Dallas. still have some cleanup (dusting a bit of clear coat touch up and buffing) but finished with the build. What i am a bit stuck on is the graphic. I have a wide format printer and will use a combo of water slide paper and for the big print thin vinyl then clear coat them on. 

here are my ideas so far. note though any graphic suggestions of course i do not want to steal or use copyright material so would be limited to press or game release pics Or any free to use although if it is a really good fit pic i do not mind paying the artist for use permission. 

for the top Fan cover use the muv luv and muv luv alternative logo

For the big side panel i was thinking of the collector game box art of Sumika without the earth (problem is size panel is 16 x 16 max vinyl i can print is 13 x 19 also on the clear coat want to make sure i have enough around the graphic to secure it in )

the window panel i been going back on forth on a small beta army or a mitsurugi pic. (5x8 area) then top part have no ideas other then logo or titles (2.5 x 16)

front LCD i just grabed the muv luv logo although will need to clean it up  was going to get rid of the white background and go with a black to blend better

about the build

really nothing to special basically is is a recase of my Lan party box. I added a playstation tv to the back and feed it to a Asus 4k for the PIP so i can see it. since game is being release in PC and Vita format though it would be cool to be able to play both :) . The ps tv is placed in my GFX cooling box . I can put specs and parts up when complete along with the clean pics. i went with a purple and blue theme on the colors.

Interesting! By Sumika without the Earth did you mistaken it with this Kasumi  picture? gamepackage_04.jpg

Yeah, that looks nice and all, but you're gonna have to get fifteen billion semiconductors that fit in the palm of your hand if you want it to be a real Muv-Luv PC.

ok so here is my progress so far, i decided on the battalion badges around the case . i went with a clear waterslide since it make the picture look more embedded in the case. For the big pic side though i am probably going to try both (clear and white back). Most the art i retrieved from the muv luv wiki.

so what is left

well big pic side of course and the case insides i want to place some beta pictures on the acrylic and maybe even a small model to put in, just finding the right one are is the tough part. i Bought a tsf model but it was a bit bigger then i though it would be so could not use it.

Looks really good - except the ZIPTIE!  Come on man - get some double-sided velcro tape (blue to match, of course)!  This is the type, but this site doesn't seem to offer any other colors... (http://www.levitthookandloop.com/qwik-tie.html?utm_source=google_shopping&162=27&177=148&gclid=Cj0KEQjw8pC9BRCqrq37zZil4a0BEiQAZO_zrK7HvRwoN2cwIbvW0hXCK5MPJz85bOv5SbGnp4_fjiQaApZp8P8HAQ)

 

Seriously though - that looks really beautiful.

So i had some nice small wireless antenna's that my Neko's decided were great for teething on, so I went a little overkill and bought the large antenna's to replace them, which of course lead to them being to heavy to hold up on their own and i improvised :P. to be honest i just need to replace these back with some smaller ones. 

 

thanks for the complements though. if I decide to rebuild it again next time i will airbrush, paint job did not come out as good as i would have liked.
