    Transparent for next step (till to do) "TALKEN ", for plastic material. spray
    Acrilic colour "MAX MAYER" for base colour
    Plastic Models colours for Camo

    Thats some sweet case man.

    Did you paint the hole case with that small painter? I`m thinking of getting my own compressor etc. But it this smile size gets the job done its the thing i`m looking for.

    I dont think my parents will like a big compressor etc.

    About painting job:

    primer, base colour (the very light grey/green/beige one) and transparent matt were given with a Spray colour (the base one was made on demand...)

    sand, brown and dark brown colours were done with the small paint gun and small compressor (camo colours)

    white and black dots with a normal brush no.4

    base, sand, brown and dark brown colours are water based colours. :D

    Soon new photo... any suggestion?????

    I am afraid about all the cables I will have in the case :sigh: really a lot!!

    Hi

    Yeah, cable management is the trickiest thing about the whole modding. Soooo many cables, going everywhere. Its hard to keep track of everything, and make everything look nice and neat.

    good luck on yours !!!

    L

    its looking pretty nice so far, Altough I liked the first picture alot more.
