This one is for Fractal's booth at CES...



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! :D

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.......

Man you are cruel! You taunt us with these awesome case mods and then you don't even give us a picture of the legendary slider!!!!! Shame on you!

You do know we don't get those here in Canadaland? At least my part...... So cruel.

Thank you! I've ordered Ace 40mm green led fan for the TUF shield, it will mount in place of the small cover in middle of the sabertooth.

Wow! This looks amazing!

As for what I've quoted above........ I think you should cut the casing of the bullets off to make it look real otherwise it will look as if there's live ammunition stuck in the window. Know what I mean?
Maybe even have one or two mushroomed out and stuck to the side panel, showing the computer is "bullet proof".... other then the glass.

I agree. Don't get me wrong the MW3 is amazing and I could never come close to reproducing it but I am just not a fan of the blown open by a grenade or a HUGE slug look.
