Welcome to my next project

"ROG Carbine"


k-aaron-deleon-verc-v2-01-standing.jpg




The carbine is based on the "verc carbine" concept of Aaron de Leon,
a 3D designer (hard surface modeling) already involved in the development of several games such as Star Citizen and Section 8.
When I saw this concept, I realized immediately that I must build it.
I immediately recognized a Pc in the carabiner, so followed also various drawings until I realized where the whole leads.
Many pictures do not exist of this concept but since I adjust the model to a PC I had to ample improvise anyway
.
The goal is to combine the model with modern hardware without changing the appearance.

As some may already know I have the same at the German Casemodding championship
the first place occupies even though the work is not even completely completed.
So here is the pre-release.
I think it will still be exciting and I hope you like the worklog.

So here is the first update:
I have tried to document all the work but when looking at the photos I see many details that were not properly photographed.but I hope the photos speak for themselves.
At the moment I have 260 pictures ;) :p

First a board cut in the shape of the weapon
k-_MG_3092.jpg


then the essay above and below the middle barrel
k-_MG_3093.jpg



k-_MG_3094.jpg


now two ridges around the barrel to its extent to broaden.
The groove is sawn with the circular saw to install all cables of the LEDs later
k-_MG_3096.jpg


now the first details
k-_MG_3098.jpg


and then two strips for the sides of the barrel
k-_MG_3099.jpg



k-_MG_3100.jpg



k-_MG_3113.jpg


Now I broadened the upper and lower barrel by another 5mm. The upper barrel I saw but later completely and build it from Plexiglas
k-_MG_3103.jpg


Now the first essays for the estuary. A groove is set with the top cutter
k-_MG_3104.jpg


and then sawn in the correct length
k-_MG_3105.jpg


and sandet in shape
k-_MG_3110.jpg


Now two MDF boards glued together
k-_MG_3112.jpg


and with the grooving cutter the width of the lower barrel milled out. Then cut into shape and ground.
k-_MG_3114.jpg


Now the next parts for this area
k-_MG_3115.jpg



k-_MG_3116.jpg



k-_MG_3117.jpg



k-_MG_3119.jpg


Now the first aluminum parts
k-_MG_3121.jpg


Here the handle on the lower barrel is now provided with long holes and then bent
k-_MG_3123.jpg



k-_MG_3124.jpg


And here are the covers of the essays from the barrel
k-_MG_3125.jpg



k-_MG_3126.jpg


This was already the first update, in the next I start with the upper barral and thus the first Plexiglas work :)

Hi,
it's time again, my weekly update.

At some point it had to be done, the water cooler on the VGA mount

k-_MG_3281.jpg


then I needed a bracket for the magazine, 4 x 22mm MDF cubes

k-_MG_3285.jpg


k-_MG_3286.jpg


k-_MG_3288.jpg


the mount for the riser cable

k-_MG_3290.jpg


k-_MG_3291.jpg


k-_MG_3292.jpg


Monitors can also be connected via an angled HDMI adapter

k-_MG_3293.jpg



k-_MG_3312.jpg


k-_MG_3313.jpg


now the top Cover
5mm Plexi cut and bend

k-_MG_3282.jpg


glued with Akrifix R192

k-_MG_3283.jpg


more Plexi in 3mm.

k-_MG_3295.jpg


CPU - side

k-_MG_3296.jpg


VGA - side

k-_MG_3297.jpg


k-_MG_3298.jpg



k-_MG_3299.jpg


k-_MG_3300.jpg



k-_MG_3301.jpg



k-_MG_3302.jpg



k-_MG_3305.jpg


k-_MG_3306.jpg


k-_MG_3307.jpg



k-_MG_3310.jpg


Pity with the 25 picture limit in some forums but they were already again.
Then, I hope it was something teaching or not, next time it goes to the construction for the handle and the power supply.​

k-_MG_3318.jpg


k-_MG_3319.jpg


k-_MG_3320.jpg


:mrgreen:

k-_MG_3321.jpg

k-_MG_3326.jpg


k-_MG_3327.jpg


the trigger

k-_MG_3328.jpg


k-_MG_3329.jpg

k-_MG_3331.jpg


left side the final shape from the trigger

k-_MG_3332.jpg


k-_MG_3333.jpg


k-_MG_3334.jpg


k-_MG_3335.jpg

k-_MG_3338.jpg


k-_MG_3337.jpg

Heyho !


now i Need extern usb ports


k-_MG_3314.jpg


for the cable

k-_MG_3315.jpg


these alu parts have made me really ready

k-_MG_3339.jpg


k-_MG_3341.jpg


bevor the paint job i set all holes for the tubes

k-_MG_3347.jpg


Loop complete,
how you can see, you see nothing XD

k-_MG_3348.jpg


holder for the res

k-_MG_3350.jpg


Here the panel in front of the handle, so you can not look behind the motherboard or the VGA.
Left a copy of the Northbridge cooler, for more symmetry in the rear area.

k-_MG_3351.jpg


the psu area

k-_MG_3355.jpg


more mdf covers

k-_MG_3356.jpg


the holes for the eps cable

k-_MG_3357.jpg


two old cabinet handles are exactly fitting

k-_MG_3358.jpg


these contours I created with key files

k-_MG_3359.jpg


The cable protection hoses are fixed everywhere with single-ear clamps and some aluminum has been adapted as veneer.

k-_MG_3360.jpg


for the other side two 8mm MDF stripes

k-_MG_3361.jpg


Power for the psu

k-_MG_3362.jpg


only now have I glued the handle to the gun

k-_MG_3363.jpg


an 8mm dowel for the good conscience

k-_MG_3364.jpg


How do you get a bent wire straight again?

k-_MG_3377.jpg


1. Cut the required length

k-_MG_3378.jpg


2.Fold the ends to better grasp them

k-_MG_3379.jpg


3. Screw the other end into a vice.
Rule of thumb: turn the wire around its own axis per meter 6-8 times.

k-_MG_3381.jpg


k-_MG_3382.jpg


k-_MG_3384.jpg


Next comes the paint and the electrics

Thank you for reading or viewing pictures.
Until next time!

Hi,

To get rid of the wood grain I painted it twice with this one.
Call it Plastic seal but it's like clear coat.

k-_MG_3368.jpg

k-_MG_3370.jpg


k-_MG_3371.jpg


k-_MG_3374.jpg


I have coated these parts with textured paint

k-_MG_3375.jpg


k-_MG_3376.jpg


Now all individually painted parts were joined together with chassis glue (Sikaflex)

k-_MG_3385.jpg

k-_MG_3388.jpg


3mm LED White konkav

k-_MG_3403.jpg


All openings I have deposited with foam rubber

k-_MG_3412.jpg

Hello,
Now the last update


We remember, the stat at Gamescom


k-_MG_0778.jpg


k-_MG_0783.jpg



but there were still little things in which I just did not know how to implement them

1.right, the ornaments behind the mouth
2.middle, the yellow clips on the barrel and
3.left, the clips on the reservoir

k-_MG_0791.jpg



first 2.
i cut out yellow acrylic but after remove the foil it looks like a Little bit green

k-_MG_3404.jpg


so i must paint it in sulfur yellow

k-_MG_3407.jpg


I've cut narrow strips off an aluminum U-profile

k-_MG_3423.jpg


k-_MG_3425.jpg


I made a few more and took the most beautiful ones

k-_MG_3426.jpg


that looks good

k-_MG_3427.jpg


now 3.
the Clips from res. I test a liitle bit with wood but in aluminum it Looks better.

k-_MG_3428.jpg


k-_MG_3429.jpg


:-P

k-_MG_3429a.jpg


k-_MG_3429b.jpg



Now I have glued the clips with silicones on the barrel


k-_MG_3430.jpg


k-_MG_3432.jpg


than 1.

k-_MG_3434.jpg


k-_MG_3435.jpg


as you can see on the last picture,the textured paint has no good Quality.
I must paint it again

k-_MG_3436.jpg


so now the last, left the silver door handles on the Vision Display had to be made of 1mm Alu
and on the right the frame of the handle I have painted in silver

k-IMG_1114a.jpg



So that's it, I can carve a notch more on the door frame again: mrgreen:
For the sake of clarity, all final images then in a separate post,
probably also this week.

Thank you for looking!
Greetings CapTen​
