Thank you! Thanks! More detailing ahead..



I'm adding lil weathering beneath rack handles



rack handles for bezel, give it more "field equipment" look



I torn-up scotch-brite pads are great for adding blotchy or speckled paint effect..



After I airbrushed over the Orange paint areas.... I also shaded over the "BF3" text...



Ok, now it's Break time, Who is open at 11pm? hmm White Castle SLIDERS!

We need more Billet Bullet Thumbscrews! these will be lodged in the window holes...

Painting the machined aluminum bullet thumbscrews to look more authentic.







More to Come.......

This is looking gorgeous!

Curious, considering the "bullet holes" across the side of the case did you contemplate putting some on the motherboard?
Though I guess with everything installed that kind of detail would probably be covered or distracted from...

Thank you, would like to do MW3, and I can't reveal that info percussionman, sorry.. While I'm still waiting for the system hardware to arrive,
I'm adding final details to the interior, like these 140mm Honeycomb Fan Grills for the exhaust and floor intake, I've painting them camouflage, to match the painted interior.

120mm and 140mm Modders Mesh Fan Grill



Supplies in order of Use.
1. Red Scotch brite Pad to scuff the surface of the grills
2. Tack Cloth to clean
3. Red Primer (any color is fine)
4. Apply Rustoleum "Specialty Series" Camouflage Paints
5. Apply Matte Clear

Sorry for lack of updates..I'm working on 3 other custom builds for CES, and it's getting down to crunch time.. The system hardware for BF3 has finally started arriving, so I could update you! First was Intel's i-7 2600 and Prolimtech Genesis cpu cooler. I was initially concerned about space for install / uninstall of the Patriot memory modules (w/ heat spreaders), but there is plenty of space! I bumped the asus sabertooth optional 50mm fan hole for cooling the P67 chipset to 60mm...and camouflaged the fan too! Final detail was cover the Apevia "Green blade" cooling fans with 120mm billet "Sniper" fan grills
