This mod is dedicated to the exploration of space and made specifically for CM Case Mod World series 2017.

The project’s name was inspired by a successful space program aimed at the study of Venus and Halley’s comet. The name of the program comes from two words: “Venus” and “Gallei”. In this program two spacecrafts, VEGA-1 and VEGA-2, were created and successfully launched from the Earth in 1984. This program was unique in its kind, since its aim was to study the comet at close range (Halley’s comet flies close to Earth every 76 years).

So in the project Cooler Master MasterCase 5 undergoes a complete structural change in its transformation into a futuristic spaceship. All these hand-crafted pieces assemble to form a three compartment like shape with the MasterCase/hull in the center and two thruster engines on either side. The ITX motherboard in the center and GPU on the sides can be accessed with top openings on all three sections. These are all hinged and once opened gives an extra cool look to make it seem as if the space ship has transformed.

The finishing touch was to get rid of the boring wood finish with paint and detailing. With the help of an airbrush, I added weathering effects to make the painted wood look like futuristic metal. All these techniques with some RGB LEDs make this mod look like a spaceship out of a science fiction movie.
