You guys kill me, seriously
Overview while assembling the various pieces of Forex.
Building up the 'crown' with construction kit.
The duct tape is there to hold the pieces in the correct positions untill the kit hardens enough.
Fast forward: The crown is ready sofar, all parts are there where they supposed to be,
and it is time for the first base coat. Like before i'm using dull black, blue and darkgrey.
Support colors are two shades of metallic paint, some sort of structure paint and antique brown.
Because I was pushing for time, I started with the bottom half, the crown wasnt dry enough yet.
Quickly add a 'handfull' of details....
The original text on the case in the game is; "POWER".
I toke the liberty to change that to "CHARGE!".
oh and 1304 is my birthday...... and 13:37.... ah well...
Crown has hardened enough, basecoat is dry, so on with the mask.
Added antique brown.
Still needs some extra work, but you get the picture.
Combine Multi-interdirectional ViewScreen
Added a little sub-project for this mod;
In this game we see a lot of these Combine terminals:
I really dig those blue multi-monitors.
Just by accident (really!) my friends of Space Promotion, handed me this 24" 3D Zalman monitor
which they got back from a warranty claim for -one- dead pixel.
With some stretching and forming I got this nice rectangle out of it..
If you imagine the monitors away, you'll be left with this frame.
Made a nice blue-print.
Then cutted Forex strips untill my fingers turned blue themselves.
Bevelled all strips with a nice edge.
which gives you really dirty hands
Started building the frame with construction kit, and clamps.
Two side frames done.
Made two aluminium supports for the side-handles.
And mounted to the the frame.
Once more the original frame in the game.
And my Forex creation.
