I get you're after a warn battle look but please take a look at the rig in the link above, its so detailed but no offense doesn't look wonky engraved like this, there are other ways to get the affect.

If you want BF4 written n it, why not paint it in a way that dust and has rested between the groves? I can't remember how but back when I was in primary school and warhammer was the big thing, there was ways to paint metal to make it look worn, might be worth a look...

you can paint a base colour on and use house/number plate letters for the writing paint another layer of textured paint on it and remove the letters leaving the base colour showing

So some details, in my view, have to have this result more "unfinished" without a good finish, and without the care to detail, as to spend an idea "I was led to war and came back," he has to stay with "battle scars."



Do not know if this procedure would be fine in aluminum, but I would prefer even one engraving procedure, which I can then repeat and redo the details if I need to.

But anyway, thanks for the tips
mate i get the look you are going for but just because it is supposed to look wrecked doesn't mean it looks good. the engraving isn't even centered, it looks wrong, like you scratched it in with a screwdriver.
there must be a a better way to do this, i really like the bullet hole top though.

The problem is the work that has to mount and dismount a kit these ... only to reduce a few inches is not worth...

As promised, more news...

Now with the power supply "cut" and installed in the case, but the cables are still not sleeved and neither the power source with the final finish on it, so I apologize for that, but once i get the military sleeve, I'll show it to as you got to the final finish.









Here with "renewed" and "cleaner" front panel:











So guys is it for now, I intend to put in front panel a acrylic front along with aluminum, but this will be shown later, hope you're enjoying it and we'll soon have more news.

Thanks to all who give me strength to continue with the project!
