This is a lovely case mod! Loved everything about the Firefly series and everything seen here so far is a great reflection of the show! I could imagine any of the characters lugging it around!

Subbing for the awesomeness of this project!

Thank you for watching and posting your comments! I appreciate it!

Last night I went over my initial weathered and distressed paint effects with an Airbrush. Anything that contrasted a lot, I muted with Matte Black, like the fan blades, copper tubing, decals, shiny toggle switches on the fan controller and screw heads. I also airbrushed the edges of Silver Aluminum paint, which I used to created the chipped and scratched paint beneath.

In the firefly verse, "Shiny" is slang for "cool" "great", "neat", "wonderful", etc.

Going over areas of the right side panel with airbrush, using Flat Black, over saturated with Thinner.. to weather or "mute" some of coloring in the decals, wiring, and smaller copper tubing

"Proximity alert. Must be coming up on something."

"Oh my god. What can it be? We're all doomed! Who's flying this thing!?" (deadpan) "Oh right, that would be me. Back to work."
