Thanks for all the supporting comments and suggestions!!! That really means a lot to me. With all the support I get more inspiration to do this mod!!! Sorry, I absolutely did not mean to turn this thread like this. I decided to go with the Soviet theme just for pure modding fun and memorabilia . Now onto the case: -I looked at the Soviet case mod and pheatonforums.com and I think the guy did a very good job with it. I also got some design pointers from his mod. -About all red theme. I re-analyzed the picture of the finished case in my mind and I think that with black outside/red inside it might definitely stand out more, it's like better contrast. -I am currently making a model in SketchUp, and will try to post pics of different color tones (red/red, black/red) ASAP. -About "worn out" case look. The first thing that came to my mind when I read that is the picture of a nuclear silo from Red Alert 2. Those of you who have played the game for the Soviets and beaten it, I think the last mission video the show a missle launch and the silo looked quite awesome. And it had that awesome worn-out + rusty look . I am thinking of forwading the case towards more that silo-like look . I will be reading articles on rusting look techniques as much as possible to find out information about this flick and how difficult it is to do. -About complex panel look. I had that idea, but decided to reserve it for future mods , but thanks for the suggestion. -Brass buttons will definiely be awesome, but I will see if I will get to use them later on, depending if they will blend in the environment. But I always could repaint them also. Thanks again for awesome comments and suggestions!!! "Nau I musd kontinue my moding duti " jaguarking11, I am sorry that you feel this way. I did not have any intentions to offense anybody with this mod.
