Not exactly a prop but used a lot of the same building processes to construct it.
Had a spare ps3 control laying about a little while ago, and seeing as i play fallout a lot, I thought I'd customise one of my controls just for the hell of it.

Dismantled the control, gave it a light sand with some fine grit sandpaper, built a rough shape using cardboard to fill with bondo, then used a dremel to sand the handgrip additions to the final shape. Sprayed primer onto it, then several coats of silver. Made a simple stencil out of masking tape to paint the hazard tape down each side. Then lots of dabbing and smudging with a couple acrylic paints to make the rust and dirt effect. Scratched through the layers of paint to add the scrapes and scratches. The metal plating repair piece was just a bid of thick card glued in place. Buttons were decals I got off ebay, Vault-Boy, Nuka-Cola logo, rad gauge and Vault-Tec logo were just printed off my computer and glued on. Then sealed it all with clear spray paint.
...............end product?............I like it!

I once built a Boondock Saints controller with 357 casings for buttons and a rosary cord. This is much cooler. :thumbup:

Son of a *****. I just saw those bullet kits online. I did mine on an original xbox controller back when I was going to Halo lan parties. I guess I should of tried to sell em.

tempting with the bottle caps, had thought of using nuka cola but wasn't sure how grippy the thumbsticks would be afterwards, unles i used some kind of textured clear coat over the top

I keep thinking about this and those bottle caps. Try a matte finish on the caps. It will give them a slightly worn look and increase the friction for your thumbs. It may need the occasional touch up.

This looks very intriguing! I tip my hat off to you sir, I plan to do something similar, Only Nuka-cola based. Still, this innovation is simply smashing.
