HandyPNP - code name: green mushroom

Post by lovablechevy » Tue Mar 25, 2014 10:38 am

doing a secret project that i've had in planning for YEARS now. lol!

here's a sneak peak!

Image
Image
Image
Image

believe it or not, i only just started all this just 4 days ago on saturday.

the top piece will be green, the bottom two pieces will stay white. same as how the HandyNES (red mushroom) was done. there will also be a green mushroom sticker on the back, same as the red mushroom.

anyway, here it is after a 2nd coat of krylon fusion (showing just 3 days of work):

i'm still keeping my lips sealed as to what it is exactly. :)

ok, i was not happy with how the case was looking. it wasn't seamless enough for my work.

so, i went back to primer. this time, i used actual primer. not fusion. i'm learning that fusion really isn't good for any parts that you use bondo or filler on. only for the plastic parts that aren't modded very much (buttons, cart slot covers, back pieces).

so, anyway, after this disaster happened i decided i needed to strip and primer
Image

it is now seriously looking sexy, all seamless and perfect
Image
Image

will be starting fresh on the green coats tomorrow.

i'm a little slow on actually submitting my updates... so here is 3 in 1!

quick update

that primer did wonders. it looks sooooooooooooooooooo good!

Image
Image

i'm thinkin just one more coat of green. generally always do at least 2 coats. then put on the label and 2 clear coats. then the case will pretty much be done.

Image
taste the rainbow

;)

ok, the final coat of green has been done.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

all the case has left is putting the name decal on the front and 2 clear coats to protect it. :D

i am really happy about how the case is turning out!

someone has finally guessed what green mushroom is!!! from my facebook: "Ryan Taylor Ah ah figures it out damn finally ok so you are taking plug-n-play systems flashing the games onto carts and then somehow playing those on an atari board. That's about as close as I can get at the moment. But it is not a console per se but an amalgam console. You're turning a tv plugin type into a hand held"

this is, for the most part, correct. i am doing a plug and play portable. i will be encasing each plug and play in famicom carts. the system only houses the controls, screen, ports, and batteries. each cart will hold the individual plug and plays aka consoles. :)

way to finally guess it, ryan! :D

This is a really neat project. Is the Radica (any of the 3) going to be used?
