I made some endo parts by printing out and putting together papercraft then coating it with resin. A proton pack is a little less organic and rounded so I'm not sure how those straight walls would come out, but if you start with thick enough paper you might be able to get a hard and clean shell out of it with a little extra work.

YES PLEASE!!

I'd leave it as seperate parts. That way, if you "fudge" a particular part you can always print out another ;)

Ive been hoping that someone would create a pep file for the proton pack. Pep work takes time but its just like building a model. And if you resin and fiberglass it enough it can take a pretty serious beating. Just take a look at the Halo costuming forums for an idea of what can be done with this method.

Years back, I took an old Haloween skull and glued tin foil to it. Then I used a sharpie to mark all the lines the T-800 skull had, and installed some Radioshack red lights for eyes, and a button to turn them on. I thought it was pretty damn genius. Too bad it got lost.

No no, not all of it is paper. Part of the upper arm and the chest, so far.

Any progress on this? I once converted a 3ds file into pep, it had over 100k folds. But something specifically made for pep is something I am definitely interested in.

I'd probably never make one this way myself, but I'd love to see what others come up with.

I remember seeing a picture of a life-sized Link from the Wii game that someone made, and it was so amazing!
Serious papercrafters can make about anything!

I'd be interested in seeing what you've done. Although I have made a papercraft Proton Pack myself a few years ago, it's just not full scale (that doesn't mean it's miniature, but it's a good size for a kid lol.) and not 100% accurate, and didn't get that much attention. :whatever:

Actually, I've seen another guy on a message board doing the same thing, weird that it's just starting to pop up now.

I personally love your papercraft pack 80sguy. It's a great little thing to make for kids, or if your in a pinch and need a pack ASAP.

Thanks! I worked hard on it. Still doing some tweaks to it actually.

Wait someone printed mine and reinforced it? Or are you talking about another pack? Either way it would be intresting to see how they do it.

I think I saw it some where on here, or another forum. I believe they used a mixture of spray adhesive, and used fiberglass or something on the inside. I really don't remember.

Also, have you made any more progress on the RGB pack or the Trap?

Unfortunately no. I haven't done much work if any on the RGB pack, other than some design layouts. The trap, it's more or less done, aside from the lack of the pedal and maybe some 3-Dimensional parts. The handle part is really flimsy though lol.

On another note, I did figure out a way to increase the size. I have no idea why I didn't try it earlier, but if you print it onto legal size paper, fitted to one page, it's makes it at least 8-10% larger than it is now one standard size paper. No idea why I didn't figure it out earlier lol, but if it's done that way, it's roughly the same size as the Real Ghostbusters Proton Pack toy. Not much, but it's something lol.
