    Hahahah awesome work with the bullet holes! I don't know what the laws are like in your country, but it's illegal to fire guns in residential areas in canada :) you might have wanted to try this one out somewhere a little more secluded! lol

    wicked work still. as for replicating the holes manually... perhaps a round pick?

    like, for digging? if you know what I mean.

    Any concern that the bodyfiller will sink back, showing where it was used instead of remaining smooth and flat?

    /edit: it looks quite cool in those uv shots, I didn't know bodyfiller glowed :hehe: btw I have new top 3, orac, ammo case, and definately black mesa, you're an inspiration.

    Though I don't understand a bit of the Poliush language, I looked through the pics on his linked project log. It looks to me like he used some brown colored paint and a paint brush to get the effect you see in his pics.

    As to your project... Excelent work thus far! :thumb: This is coming out nicely! Keep it up.

    Why don't you just bring your right panel to a shooting range to finnish it off righ? Unless you wanna have some fun trying to replicate the bullet holes

    Piloux: Are you planning on colouring the toggle switches?

    I realise using the rust you have on the rest of the case may cause some problems if it gets into the switch but you could always try chemically blackening them. If you find a somewhere that sells gun supplies (air rifles etc.) ask them if they sell "gun blue". You dillute it (with water I think) and dip the metal into the solution.

    This technique has been used to blacken the wheels on model railway engines with good results. It's worth a try if you dont want the switches to be as shiney.

    Looking good. IMHO, the fanbus pots are a bit long, but that's just a matter of taste :p

    I imagine he's gonna shorten the shafts on those pot's when he finds appropriate knobs for them. It's a finishing touch really and i imagine piloux is just trying to get the important stuff done first.

    That mesh bezel looks good but I think the exposed radiator is cool looking by itself. Unfortunately I think it would look best if it were flush with the front but if the case top has been cut already that probably isn't an option. Or even if you just fabricated something to fill the gap between the back of the fanbus and the bottom of the radiator so you don't have the hole. Amazing work so far...I'm sure it will turn out excellent. Maybe you will prove me wrong once that bezel is painted up. :thumb:
