I wanted to make a controller that looked like it actually came straight from Columbia. Like a modern Xbox controller was something some craftsman had seen through a tear, and attempted to replicate.
That was the idea I had in mind when I had started this project, and I think I did as good a job as I ever could have imagined. Swapped out the green LED's for some more fitting yellow ones. Styrene for the various adornments, brackets and of course raised letters for the buttons. Apoxie sculpt was used to make the "wooden" handle with some molds made from actual wood grain surfaces. The whole thing is completely and carefully hand-painted with durable model masters acrylic paint.
So what am I going to do now that this awesome controller is finally finished? Go beat Bioshock Infinite on 1999 mode!
