    Hello Friends,

    i'm a german boy, this is my first casemod. The Idea is not new (i know) and i think you see this style often like in Butterkneter's HL² Mod or Schumi's City 17 Mod. :hip: but i try to do my own thing!

    Please don't hurt my heart and my work too much, i'm very sorry but my english is really bad ... plz rate this thread, thx :worried:


    The Idea:
    The best movie that i've ever seen was BAND OF BROTHERS,
    [​IMG]
    i love it really! And i love the rusty look from the named cases. Ok i think that match! And the new idea was born. :idea:


    The Sketches:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The Facts:
    - complete rust painting (inside too)
    - only orange lights insinde
    - a relais to control the light like flare
    - U.S. Army and Airborne signs (specially from the 101 division)
    - stealth mode
    - on the right side of the tower you will find the org BAND of BRTOTHERS stroke
    - on the left side a dirty window with bullet holes
    - rivets overall
    - in the front you will find a very old amperemeter (WW2), 2 ponti's and 4 switches
    - it will have LAN handles
    - on the top you will find a 120mm fan
    - will find inside the case a diesel oil tank with UV react fluid in it
    - etc.

    Note:
    I want to show you here the progresses that i made till it's done. The photos shown are two weeks work till today! Please feel free to give me hints or new ideas. I'm really need comments or reviews ... now it's your turn, what you mean? :clap:

    This is the 2'nd try to cut out the letters with (Moosgummi) something rubber like:
    [​IMG]
