This will be my next project, the work title is „A-51“.

It will be inspired by Area 51 and all those spooky stories around it…. The Rig is build from parts of some normal ATX Midi Towers which I already converted to a WTX like "case" and some 90° aluminium bars.

It will get a huge side+top Window and a lot of eyecatching details in the inside of the case.

Up to now I already have done some of the gadgets I will built in, like an motorized “Iris” which regulates the airstream from a stealth mounted Fan under it.
But enough of the words here are the first pictures of it ….more will follow in the next days….

i made a first part of the sidepanels which will be placed on the bottom part of the case.......

thanks a lot!!!!


i have just made a first try for the front "entrance".....the stairs will be part of the ground plate........the front door which finally will cover the radiator will be motorized so that both panels would slide away

Thanks a lot for your comments! :D


in the last days i was very busy but here are some small updates:


first i build an elevator which i will later hotwire with my lpt port or an interface for the lpt port so that i can use the holes for every level of the building as an indicator for the cpu load...........

http://www.babetech.de/images/a51/a51aufzugschacht.jpg
http://www.babetech.de/images/a51/a51aufzugausgang.jpg

then i build a small cover where i will build in some buttons for opening / closing the front door....it will be placed on the groundplate of the case in the later progress....

Just a question, are you going to make this whole thing out of wood?

yes and no.....the inside of the case is made of metal....some of the outside parts like the front and the upper sidepanels are made of wood, because i want this heavy look it makes....

here some more pictures from my latest work on this mod.....

(after it i will post more pictures of the complete progress)
