Welcome guys, to the mod log of my next Project, BF3 .3, there are many reasons why I have entitled this project BF3.3 I might get onto that later
First off I would like to thanks the current sponsors, some of which came on board before I even touched a screwdriver, thank you guys!
I will of course show pictures of products as they arrive
Anyways lets kick off with my rough plan of the mod I wanted to do, basically I wanted to make a nice Battlefield 3 mod, this involved one of my misses hand etched master pieces. Being battlefield 3 themed I also wanted to get the camo effect on the case, I also wanted to have some sort of realism into and thatís when I came up with this idea.
This was to be my starting block, although I am not quite sold on which camo route to go down, but it will be a desert style one.
The basic idea was simple, strip the level 10 GT side panel down to rework the side panel and rebuild it flush to the top grill to take a full length window with an etch in it, now I know a few will say the green does not look that right with the tan, but green UV is chosen simply because it is best at making the etchings stand out.
Oh the magazine in the side, I should mention that I plan to make this the security key and without it sitting in the slot, the PC power button wonít work.
Ok now we got the basic design out the way, I can start thinking about add-ons and other things to tie in with the battlefield 3 theme, but first I would like to start off with the etch. This process has taken weeks and is created using 1000s of dots to create the shading effects.
Original art work.
So here is how far we got.
One of the best etches she has done yet I think, although it has taken some time, once finished completely I will post up some more pictures of the etching, but next instalment will be the start of the rework of the side panel
