    Now im at it again! :D This case is a project for a friend of mine his stepson wanted a Counterstrike case so he asked me to make one for him.and since i just love making cases i agreed to do it. I started with a really crappy looking old miditower.

    This case would not win any beautycontests thats for sure. So lets make it better shall we :)

    After removing almost the entire front i used a stainless steel mesh to make a new front.
    [​IMG]

    I wanted to get some texture on thes mod so tons and tons of putty was used
    [​IMG]

    After that i drybrushed the whole thing in som dark Grey, brown and green tones
    [​IMG]

    I wanted a big CS logo on the side so i made one out of lexan and glued it in place on the side
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then i covered it all up with putty
    [​IMG]

    And then some color
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    After some more drybrushing this is what i ended up with
    [​IMG]

    For the other side i decided to make a Colt M4a1 and a Ak47. and i also made a plexiplate with the guys nick that will be lighted with a couple of leds to make it glow

    Heres the little plexi Colt :)
    [​IMG]

    unfortunatle my camera broke down so i couldnt get any pictures of the other side beeing done but heres the final result.

    A top mouted window was cut out and more putty was applied
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And guess what....More drybrushing :)
    [​IMG]

    And finally a couple of pictures as tha case stands now

    I stil have alot to do on this case like the power and reset swithes some lights and a varitey of other Counterstrikeish options to make this a case that any 14 year old CS freak would drool over :) Ill be back with updates soon.

    Very cool! Are you going to drybrush more over the guns like you did on the CS logo?

    Nah, gotta leave it used and dirty that way it has more of a combat feel to it. Although I personally wouldn't sleep on top of a gun.

    Maybe you could also place some leds in the plexi under the drypaint, hoping it would light up a bit, use bright leds on 20ma or higher

    -=UPDATE=-
    The powerswitch is finished!

    First i took an empty shell
    [​IMG]

    I used the dremel to make a hole for the switch
    [​IMG]

    I had to dremel down the edges on the microswitch to make i fit inside the shell
    [​IMG]

    But i got it in there at last
    [​IMG]

    I made a bullet from a piece of aluminium
    [​IMG]

    And this is what it looks like with the bullet in place
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Ill be back soon with the reset switch and hdd/power led bullets to :)

    You could start mass producing those powerswitches, but also make a few rheobus ones.
    Excellent case!
