For those of you who followed grim_d's Umbrella worklog, you probably already know about this. If you are one of the unfortunate human beings that did not discover the Umbrella w.i.p, I decided that I would do up a S.T.A.R.S. themed Xbox to accompany the Umbrella box.

THIS ISN'T THE FINISHED XBOX. THIS CASE TOP WILL NOT EVEN BE INCLUDED IN THE FINAL XBOX. I WILL BE DOING A FULL S.T.A.R.S. XBOX MOD AT A LATER DATE.
I did this one because I was bored and I wanted to hold everyone over until I do the full mod which will take quite a while. I will also be selling this in the BST to raise money for the S.T.A.R.S. xbox.

thats really nice... i am assuming you did that with an airbrush.

my question is for you, how did you get the effect in the green paint? i mean it looks really detailed, is there a simple trick to this, or is it something that took you alot of time.

you can send me a PM if you want. i am looking into airbrushing.

That effect on the green paint is friggin sweet. I really like the way this one looks as it is now, If you say your next one will be even better, I can't wait to see it!

^took you long enough grim! I was beggining to think the stars box wasn't making anyone wet!

Thanks for all the compliments guys! Truth be told, I'm not too hot on it which is why I'm going to redo it. I think the marblizer is a bit distracting from the revolver and the text. I finished the whole top within 8 hours of getting back from vacation including the time I was watching the world cup game.

The full mod is going to have a shaved top and front plate, A traditional camo paintjob, the revolver, STARS text in white and possibly some realistic flames on the front plate.

As for the background effect, All I did was spray HOK green/blue marblizer on, stretch some Saran Wrap over the wet paint, pat it down in some areas and then peel it back.

I love the marble effect and the revolver and text but it just doesnt go together that well. Great job non the less, so are you going to sell that case or re-use it?

I completely agree with you. There is a little too much going on for my taste.

Anyway, I am selling it in the BST to raise some money for the mod.
