[Sponsored] Project BF3.3 (battlefield 3 mod) - Page 8

post #71 of 126
Thread Starter 
Back again with a minor little update, decided against the bullets and thought I would mount the Dice nade that I harvested from the Calibur Battlefield 3 vault.

image001.jpg

Used a dremel drill piece with some masking tape, to make initial guide holes in the right place, then removed the tape and put a grinding piece on (pointy thin type). You may have noticed I removed the tape, the reason for this is when grinding plastic, the plastic can get hot and if you leave tape it will get caught in the tape. Removing it allows me to quickly remove any that may come up through the top onto the paint.

image002.jpg

Mounted nice and tight to the panel, now time to move onto the claymore and mounting that, this means it’s time to do the same thing with that, but it’s not going to be as quick as this.

image003.jpg

The first thing I done here was get the placement right, I wanted a small gap at the bottom, those of you that have actually dealt with the level 10 case will know how awkward this is going to be to mount, the front of the case is very uneven and just select were to put the mount holes is a bit awkward.

image004.jpg

So after a lot of trial and error, I worked out my placement for the mounts to get it into the right place, the issue with the spot though is one is right next to the HDD tray release button, not ideal but with the right tools possible. As it was so close to the button a smaller pilot hole was made this time with the tape, then I had to remove the tape and use a bigger drill piece, just to ensure I was careful enough not to damage the button.

image005.jpg

Then as with the previous mount for the nade I had to grind the hole to the right size without the tape.

image006.jpg

As you can see I had to grind down 2 pieces of plastic so the button still had full function, at least the opposite side was not as troublesome.

image007.jpg

Same as the previous side, small pilot hole was made with a smaller drill bit, then the tape removed and a larger piece used, this was then grinded open as with the previous holes.

image008.jpg

Now the clay more was mounted and I was happy with how it came out, time to see how it all looks on the case.

Overall I am happy with the way this is starting to shape up and look like what I had planned in my head, once I decided to go with the BF3 artwork, see you at the next instalment.

I think the grenade looks much cleaner and adds a better overall look to the case. The rounds were nice but it just seemed over the top. Where did you score that grenade?

Cheers guys, the nade was donated with claymore by calibur, who make themed vaults for ps3 and Xbox. I managed to blag one from them.

So what did the sponsors give you? And did you just tell them you were making a bf3 case and they gave you stuff?

If you read through the pages you will see what the sponsors have donated and ill post more as i progress, and no it was not as easy as that to get stuff (i wish and every other modder wishes it was as easy as that tongue.gif) I have contacts in the industry so that probably helps too.

Back again with another update, first off I’ll show you the products that arrived from some of the sponsors.

First up Bill stepped up and offered a set of MNPCtech Grooved feet,( nice to get sponsored by someone whos builds you have followed for a long time) his BF3 mod and another are the reason this mod was called BF3.3 as it is the 3rd BF3 mod to be done at time of planning.

image001.jpg

Nice little package from them cheers bill.

image002.jpg

I have used MNPCtech’s feet on a build before and they were the obvious choice for this build.

image003.jpg

I think we can clearly see why MNPCtech’s products are loved by us modders, (yoda Bill defo knows what his doing over there at MNPCtech).

The next item to arrive from a sponsor was the military themed InWin Commander 850w PSU.

image005.jpg

Credit were credits due to the sponsors for supplying these products, Back to modding and it was time to finalise the etch, this meant adding the only logo that would be visible on the window as it has a miltary style to it.

image006.jpg

Logo Printed out and flipped, the first thing done is too do a gentle dotted line around the edges.

image007.jpg

As you can see once you have done that, rather than lines you can see from this picture the logo is gentally put in with dots. (this also allows for small errors to be corrected).

image008.jpg

Closer image of the outline in dots, as you can see its very light indeed

image009.jpg

Then by adding more dots you can thicken up the lines its quite time consuming but it’s the best way to etch imho as you get a better overall finish.

image010.jpg

Now the outline was more bold you can go in and give the shading effect to the etch.

image011.jpg

And that’s it, the overal logo is done, flip it over the right way and then you have this.

image012.jpg

Ok I suppose you just want to see what it all looks like with the BF3 etch don’t you, well here is the final result.

image013.jpg

I can not wait to get this in the case and lit up, anyway that’s all for today, more work to do.

Opps what a meany I am :eyebrow: should at least let you see a larger picture of the etch, link to larger image here
