Tazz Modders-Inc’s Green Flame on the cover of CPU



Americanfreak and I are always trying to showcase our mods to help promote the site and the hobby. AF and I have been hitting one large event a year since we started Modders-Inc.com. Each year we try to take at least one mod with us to showcase our skills and promote the hobby.

Our first year we did QuakeCon 06 and showed off Meshie and the original Enemy Territory Quake Wars Radio Pack AF built for the CPU magazine giveaway we held at the event.

Our second year was QuakeCon 07 which we showed off Ultra Sweet and AF's 2nd Military Radio Pack he created for Cooler Master. This year we upped the ante a little by giving away T-Shirts and a few prizes like the Laptop Design USA Silverstone case.

Last years trip consisted of a little more travel on my part. We decided to head to Nvision 08 to see how Nvidia rocks the house. We assisted in the Case Mod Contest, and held a workshop on modding. At the time we decided to do Nvision, I started pitching ideas to a few people and finally locked in on the decision to build Green Flame. Seeing that this was going to make it debut at Nvision, it left me with just over 3 months to complete it.
 

 

 

As we can see by the mock up. Green Flame original started out with a few of the parts carried over from Ultra Sweet. I guess I could call this a re-mod :D which is part of the reason I wanted the chassis it uses. I can easily swap out parts and showcase a different case for various events.

 

 

Although the flame design started out pretty serious. I quickly realized that it would have take way to long to complete those cuts by hand, let alone trying to sand and polish the flames. I opted to do a few less flame tips and increase their size.

 

 

The biggest and most painful task of doing Green Flame, was the sanding and polishing. Even achieving a semi decent finish requires hours and hours of sanding and polishing. To take on a job such as this, you need to make sure you're not on a deadline… Trust me:D.

Special Thanks to all my sponsors!

What's in store for this years event? Well right now we are not 100% sure. But do stick around and find out. I am sure we will pick a show worth while. You can be sure I will be working on another mod very soon :D.
