    Picked these bits up to make a Fallen soldier tribute in or on the case

    Not sure how i will fit these into the mod, but I think it is a nice touch.

    I would personally use those pieces inside behind the panel and light it up with LEDs behind the side panel.

    Just a suggestion something that i would do :) use it don't use it.

    Sorry about the lack of updates guys, still got to get case prepped, anyway I thought while were waiting,
    I thought I would show you how the case is getting on (this is only layer 2 of the artwork there are a few layers to go yet).

    I cannot wait for it to be finished so I can carry on with the finishing touches to the mod, until next time (hopefully in the next week)

    Well thankfully McNETT were kind enough to get involved in this mod, and supplied me with a few rolls of Camo form/wrap in multicam style,

    McNETT are a us based company that supply all sorts of products for the hunting and fishing market as well as products for military use. You can find out what over products they make here http://www.mcnett.com/

    [​IMG]

    As mentioned the product they supplied us with is camo form which is popular in the military as well as the hunting and fishing market,

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    This stuff is pretty amazing to be honest as it simply clings to itself, without having that Velcro feel to it, what makes it good is it also is washable and once dry it returns back to its stick state (useful if you have been rolling around in some mud, thankfully the rig won’t be doing that :p)

    Anyway I thought I would start applying it to the weapon that is mounted on the roof of the case and this is how it came out.

    What was also handy is it also made it very easy to mount the pressure switch for the tactical light on the foregrip.

    I still have a few more things to do to with the camo form, but I need to wait until the building stage of the rig to do these, but I thought I would just share these with you for now.
    While I was here I thought I would also show you these, which arrived from crucial

    [​IMG]

    These are part of the Ballistix range (http://www.crucial.com/ballistix/) of memory, the kit supplied was a 16 GB quad kit so I set about making custom heat spreader stickers for them.

    Ties in with my theme better I think, more updates coming soon as more stuff turns up for the project, I should also have a nice update on the case for you next week.

    Weapon has a few scuff marks and defo some usage marks on adjusting stock, you will see when build is final and I do some close ups ;)

    Oh well even the best laid plans go out the window when modding, this time bad weather and couriers are the delay. Anyway to keep your appetites wet I thought I would share a couple of photos with you before the case got lacquered.

    [​IMG]

    The main side of the case, cannot wait to mount the etching in there, even though it will be one of the last things I do.

    [​IMG]

    And for those of you that want a little close up of the tank

    [​IMG]

    Will post some more stuff soon as the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight
