    Default "BATTLEFIELD 3" PC Case Mod

    Here is the "BF3" theme case mod in anticipation of Battlefield 3: BF3 release on 10.25.2011 by Electronic Arts. Fractal Design's Arc Mid tower case was chosen for the project.

    Fractal Design new "Arc" Midi Tower Case.



    Fractal design Arc Mid tower fully dismantled for custom paint.



    The name badge in the bezel was filled with Evercoat's Everglass" Fiberglass "short hair" filler.



    After sanding the filler with Medium Grit sandpaper..



    Scuffing surface of steel chassis parts, plastic bezel with Red Scothbrite Pad, to create paint adhesion for the Primer.




    Dissected and Magnified each segment from camouflage pattern on 8.5" x 11" paper. Each segment was traced and cut in cardboard for individual stencils.



    RUSTOLEUM Specialty series "camouflage" paints. I purchased these from Home Depot



    Camouflage paint job is finished.



    Camouflaged motherboard tray? Yes, the entire interior was painted.



    For a rugged military look, we chose these recessed PC case handles, http://www.mnpctech.com/BlackRecessedHandle.html



    The recessed PC handles are ready for installation and spring loaded, so they don't flop while transporting your PC.



    Using stencil included with handles along with measuring square to determine exact location for the recessed PC handles



    Using 1.5" Dremel reinforced cutting wheel to cut opening for recessed PC handles




    Using 1/4" drill bit for mounting holes of the recessed handles.



    Cutting 3/16" thick aluminum Diamond Plate to use as accent plates for the handles.



    Khaki base coat applied to the Diamond Plate accent plates.



    Recessed PC handles and diamond plate installed and painted.




    Airbrushed effect of side panel being peeled back by <a Mnpctech custom painter, Brad Galvin.



    Brad's weapon of choice, Iwata's HP-CH airbrush gun.



    Glowing effect airbrushed on the BF3 Marine.



    Black outline airbrushed on BF3 Marine. A flat clear will be applied over the finished mural.



    with Brad's guidance, I airbrushed the bullet holes and scratched paint effects on the access panel. I started with the easy task of filling the BF3 stencil on the left side panel.







    To create bullet holes in the cast acrylic PC window sheet, using #9901 Dremel Attachment Tungsten Carbide Cutter for Engraving



    Using Dremel to create bullet holes...



    The illusion of bullet holes, created in the custom paint and made in the cast acrylic PC window sheet




    Just a few more details to take care of, then we can install the system!

    I echo this statement. Many of your (Bill) mods are about flash, which just isn't my style. But this, this is one refined, elegant mod. This is very tasteful without being overly gauche. Fine work!
