looks awesome, I'm jealous of the stickers!!
Dreamcast, it's still thinking.
Overclocked Dreamcast with switch, SD card reader, built in VGA, activity led, reset button and loads more extra cooling!
Looks really clean and official. I admire your level of detail. A great change from the standard dull black cases.
Looks amazing... nicer than in black even! What paint did you use if thats ok to ask?
How did you get the purple colours too?
Awesome! I wish I had the ability to do such cool stuff.
Insert stupid poem here.
Sorry, I've not checked this thread for a while.
The purple section is standard Mega Drive colours. That's actually original, not painted at all.
The paint used is one made for plastics and comes in pretty much any colour you could ever want. It can be bought from any Japanese hardware store but I doubt they sell it outside of Japan. The brand is Asahi Pen and it's part of their Creative Colour series. I used the silver (No.90) with sparkles. It goes on like a dream. Just use nice sweeping passes over the item being sprayed at about 15cm up. I did 3 coats to get the final look. With the original colour being black, the silver sort of shows the black once it's dried in to the plastic. This is why you need a few coats to get a solid even finish.
Unfortunately, I don't have any before pictures. Basically it was a dirty bashed Mega Drive. I gave it a clean up, then went over the main black body with very fine glass paper to give the surface a nice key for the paint. sadly the big gash down the side of the console looks worse now than what it did when the console was still black.
The text on the system is actually official Sega decals that I bought about 5 years ago from Sega Direct. I had Saturn and Dreamcast sets too.
