80s Style Supercomputer System

I’m trying to copy the look of old 80s supercomputers. This was the time when it was neat to stuff a ton of power into a small case, then install it in an isolated room, or in the corner of a large room. But most of the time, this look was just limited to the promotional pictures of the unit. Then again, a few installations looked like this too.

I’m starting to think that I went over bored with the reflections. I don’t think plastic can get that reflective.

If you rub it enough I bet it could.

That’s lighting is good, but you need one shot for being able to see everything, and another for the lighting setup. I mean, one shot that is bright(this would be just so you could show people what the objects look like), and the other would be the lighting setup you want, to show people what the final image might look like.

OK. Here’s a wire frame of the whole thing:

I know my lighting setup is a little nuts, but it gave me what I wanted, so I went with it.
