Thank you for watching and commenting utnorris and apostolis159!

I figured painting a portion of right panel Orange metallic, would compliment the Copper tubing... I also implement CORSAIR 400 into the label for the box. I'm still working on the paint effects around the edges.

I will be using "sophisticated finishes" Metallic surfacer as base coat before applying their Instant Rust solution to edges of the panels

This is the portion of the left panel that I want to add rust effect, "sophisticated finishes" Metallic surfacer as base coat before applying Instant Rust solution to portions of the faux exposed steel along the bottom edges.... It's still work in progress

The 240 "Serenity" in Kanji grill for the top panel, will be cnc milled from 1/4" Copper.. I may try "Flame Coloring" it like this photo...with Oxygen acetylene torch

of course, you've gotta have "BLUE SUN" implemented too! This Fan Grill design is by Roboduck! and will be milled from 3/16" aluminum. This will mount on the rear exhaust for the 400R chassis.

Here is progress on right panel. Yesterday, I created the effect of peeling and scratched paint. I dabbed the edges on the side panel with PlastiKote's #207 Aluminum "Engine Enamel" Silver paint. Sprayed onto paper sheet, then dabbed onto paint brush... Steps to follow include Painting along the edge of the Silver painted chips and scratches, to create illusion of layered paint. ...like this image More weathering and graphic references from firefly will be implemented this week. I'll also be using Sophisticated Finishe's Rust effect products for adding a rust to areas of the exterior.

Thank you for the feedback! It's still a work in progress and needs a lot of more realistic refinements smile.gif I'll be using Sophisticated Finishes surface effect products to add some rust to areas of the exterior. I used this on the District-9 PC.

Your creativity and skill amaze me. I loved Firefly and never tired of gazing at Jewel Staite, but to make a case mod inspired by the show...this is why I go to work for the man everyday and you have your own shop. Kee 'em coming and I'll keep subscribing!
