        Fallout 3 Case Mod Nuka Cola Caps

        At this point I thought I would change up from working on the case and do one of the items that will be placed on the top of the case.

        I took the bottle caps and painted them a dark brown with a light over spray of flat black to get the look I wanted as a base.

        I found online that someone created some images of the Nuka Cola logo for the bottle cap; I was very grateful :-)

        So I printed them out on some adhesive label paper so that I cut cut them out and attach them to the caps.

        Here they are almost all done as I was still working on weathering them.
        Once I got them to the point I like I applied just a lite coat of clear.

        I want to caps to be on the top of the case but I did not want them to be loose so I added some machine screws to them.
        Out came the hot glue gun with heavy duty glue and presto!

          Let there be light

          Well here is the left side panel with all the gauges and very little detail. I added some yellow
          LEDs to each of the gauges to make them light up for some added effects. The case will mostly bee seen
          in a dimly lit room so lighting with give it that needed pop.

          I wanted a single point where all the lighting would get its power so I used part of a power terminal
          and used one of the bolts and screw from a gauge to mount it. A long molex connection is being used to
          get the power from another connection point in the case.

          I went to my local auto store and grabbed a set of 12inch long LED strips for $20.
          This is about the same price if I ordered online, but it only took me 10 minutes to go pick them
          up and drive back home. The LED strips will be place at the top and bottom of the side window to
          light up the inside and emitted some light out the top of the case.

          Ah, just the color and look I wanted. It lights it up rather well in work shop so when the lights
          go out it will look awesome.

              Fallout 3 PIP-Boy 3000

              I really wanted to try and make my own PIP-Boy from scratch but time being a factor I tracked down a place
              http://forgeprops.bigcartel.com/product/pip-boy-3000 that sold a molded copy. This means that I did not have to make the thing, but I have to do everything else to it like painting it, lights, screen and etc.

              As you can see the inside is really rough, the edges need cleaning up and I have to cut out the place
              where the screen will go. The screen will not be a video screen but some green UV plexi, printed screen
              that looks like it is from the game and a back light to give it the correct screen look.

              I had to cut out the area where the plexi will go so that it will sit nice and flat.

              I got the screen to fit really nice and I used some auto body spotting putty to fill in the holes
              and imperfections that would be seen.

              Time to get the thing looking real. I did the same thing with the hair spray here as I did with the case but without the rust painting. First a dark primer went down then I laid down a base coat of green. After that I use a camo green paint and lightly dusted the PIP-Boy to dull down the look.

              Ah, the magic starts. A smooth 3M pad does a great job making thing look dull and scratched. A wooden dowel to make the scratches deeper and rough. Then here is where you really get the look by Dry Brushing paint. Dry Brushing is where to take black,grey, brown or any color you want and use a fairly bristle brush, dab it lightly into the paint, dab it onto something else to get the excess paint off and then you hit the edges and cracks.

              The top and the bottom all done. Yep those are screws sticking out the bottom. Those will be used to mount the PIP-Boy to the top of the case.

                Modding the rest of the stuff

                Lets take a quick look at the case as I am pretty much done with the worn look.

                It is time to install the side window. With the help of a little bit of 3M Clear tape the
                window looks perfect and really adds to the overall look.

                Luckily the power supply was almost the perfect color so I had to do very little to it. I need to remove the
                stickers so out came the heat gun and after as few moments the sticker peeled right off.

                        Final Images of the Fallout 3 Case Mod

                        I know this was a rather short work log but the work took over 80 hours to make the case. The case serves two purposes as one for the Staff vs Staff contest and that it would be displayed at our booth for QuakeCon 2013. With QuakeCon come and gone I thought I would just wrap it up as soon as I could so that I can head off to the next project, reviews and other website duties. A HUGE thanks goes out to our sponsors and we really appreciate your support!

                        Case: Thermaltake s41 Urban Series


                        Keyboard: Thermaltake Challenger Illuminated


                        Mouse: Thermaltake Theron


                        Headset: Thermaltake Console one


                        CPU Cooler: Thermaltake Big Typ Revo


                        Power Supply: Seasonic Platinum 1000, 860, and X850


                        SSD: ADATA SP600 128GB


                        Memory: Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer DDR3 PC3-14900


                        Motherboards: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0


                        Video Card: EVGA 680 GTX


                        CPU: AMD FX-8350

                        I had a great time creating this case and learned a new trick on how to get the worn look.
                        I was hoping to get the look right and with all the reactions that it caused at QuakeCon I think I did.
                        I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
