Sounds like a fun idea, too bad you're doing rangers and not habs.

Anyways, i'm having trouble visualizing it, more description, sketch maybe?

i finally figured out what you meant by a bucket on its side...definitely haven't seen anyone do that before.

What about just using plexyglass or sheet metal to make the shape? You'd need a big bucket to get all the computer components in it.

hand sketch it and then scan it in, or take a picture of it so we can see it better. And its all about the Flames imo
