Thread: Project BF3.3 (battlefield 3 mod)

    Project BF3.3 (battlefield 3 mod)

    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 that’s 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 won’t 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

    Are you saying that the etching is being done by hand?

    That's insane.. and who is "she" ?

    I would give my liver to have some artistic skills like that. I can't even draw a stick man.

    Ummmm does she have a really hot talented sister that's single and loves geeky (but cool) modders by chance?


    That is amazing work right there. I might want something etched and would be willing to pay.

    You lucky dog!

    cost would be too high, we tried to get a service offered before, but no one wanted to pay, this took a tad over 30 hours of work to do and even at minimum wage that would be 225 quid, and I don’t think minimum wage is suitable for this type of skill tbh.

    Agreed, if I took the AzTtec mod I just completed and wanted to sell it for what I put into it (hourly), I'd want about $5500.

    Not sure if I could get that though. LOL

    Thanks for the comments guys, should post some more up later... Bod I had an idea of the BF3 theme as soon as it was announced, and Just stalled as I needed a break from modding (too much on work shedule)... BTW thanks for letting me have your rough sketchup model to play around with, it really helped..

    that etch is un frikken believeable. As for charging, artists charge what the market will bear, not by the hour. I understand and completely agree with the time/effort computation.... but as we all know, hourly does not equate to a money figure. That's why car painters quote the job. Not the hour. Same for air brush artists... this would fall in the same vein.

    An amazing talent like that may initially only have a few takers, unless the opening work price was brought down to create demand. *THEN*, once word was out, and the demand crept up, the price would go up due to her exposure and she could set her own price. As demand increased, so could her price.

    TADAA! So ends the TD school of economics... class dismissed!
