Metal Dragon Build​

This time I am planning of sculpting a metal armour dragon head in a scratch PC build.

Will be cutting, shaping small pieces of MDF board using hand files to form basic dragon head and later will be using wood-filler for final shape and last will be hand painting the build.

Since MSI uses dragon in their logo, so I shared my idea with MSI, and they were very happy to support this build.

First I will be making a dragon head, once close enough I will share the idea about how the whole PC will look like … till then enjoy the build process with me

So to start with I took a scaled printout of the dragon head and started measuring and cutting MDF pieces.

Slowly things started transforming from 2D printout to real 3D shapes.

This build will be a little long and slow process and I am only able to work on this in night or weekends. But I am enjoying the process and hope you all will also like it.

Looks sick! Do you only do this as a hobby or do you also sell stuff? I'm sure people will be interested, me included. Maybe time to put all your work on a website

That looks Superb man, what is the other material you are using along with MDF, the panel which is connecting eyes and nose of the dragon to be precise.

Hello to all. Sorry for little delay, due to some unforeseen circumstances build was little halted. But now everything is on-track.
Also like to update that AMD is now partnering with us in this build with AMD Ryzen 9 3950X processor.
