Foreword by Joe Martin
Here we are again, drooling all over another one of Ton Khowdee, AKA TiTON’s, beautiful Team Fortress 2 themed mods.

Last time we looked at one of TiTON’s mods was with the Team Fortress 2 Dispenser Mod, which blew our socks off. Now, it’s time to look at the next stage of TiTON’s plan – one which now threatens to blow us out of our shoes unless we’re very careful; The Sentry Mod.

These two Valve-inspired mods are both absolutely jaw-dropping and the attention to detail and the level of devotion which has clearly gone into building these life-sized replicas is absolutely stunning.

Still, what tops it all in terms of devotion is that this still isn’t the end. TiTON plans on continuing the project by building a teleporter pad to accompany the set, plus a Windows Vista Sideshow-enabled touchscreen attachment disguised as a Sapper. Some would say that’s madness. ‘round here, we call it Modding Fever.

Team Fortress 2 Sentry Mod

Last time, when we featured TiTON and his Dispenser mod, we wrote a little foreword showcasing some of the best Valve-inspired mods we’d seen over the years; the likes of The Weighted Companion Cube PC and both of the Half-Life cases, Blackmesa HL2 and The Official Half-Life Case.

Now though, frankly, that showcase seems just a little bit redundant – TiTON’s Team Fortress 2 case mods are practically a series in their own right.

What we've almost forgotten is that this is a case mod - there is a PC inside it! As a piece of fan art alone it would be impressive but TiTON has managed to squeeze in this little lot to make it the ultimate LAN machine (i.e. do you dare frag him? I think not):
  • EVGA e-7150 / 630i Motherboard
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 CPU
  • EVGA GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card
  • 4GB Crucial Tracer PC2-6400 DDR2 Memory
  • Silverstone Strider 650W Modular PSU
  • Silverstone NT06 Lite CPU cooler w/ 120mm Fan
  • 160GB Seagate Momentus Notebook Hard Drive
