Nice job identifying that faded label on the Ecto-1A's red storage tank. It seems that the prop-builders cut up this label for use on the rear instrument bar and the gun track on the throwers.

Wow, that is definitely interesting. Considering that Stephen Dane took considerable inspiration from military hardware for the design of the packs, I'd say there's a good chance that he had this in mind.
I recently purchased a blue brick wiring set, and it arrived a few days after a very timely response from Nathan. The quality is excellent, and I had it installed on my pack in under ten minutes.

I have 30" waist, and my belt currently has a 3/4" leather fob, 1" grey snap hook, 1" black bolt snap, 1" beefy bolt snap, 2" V-ring, and a 2" D-Ring, in addition to a belt gizmo/daughterboard, trap holster, Lifegard II, and a pouch for the Monitor 4. As such, ther...
Will the sound and thrower light kits be back in stock any time soon, or are they going to remain a special order item for the indefinite future?
Nice! Another photo of the Spengler Hero pack that sold at auction a few years ago. Somehow it looks even more beat and worn than before.
This definitely looks intriguing; hopefully it will be a nice mix of both in-universe pseudo-science about the cars and the actual screen-used vehicles.

In the meantime, have a look at the photos I took of the Venkman Hero Pack. They may prove useful...

Oh, good; I'm not the only one who noticed that. As subtle as the tilt was, it really bothered me...
Nicely done! This makes me want to finally take on putting together a proper dark grey GB2 suit.
I just saw that episode the other day as well, on MeTV, right? Needless to say, the same GB2 connection occurred to me. It's a good thing Chief O'Hara didn't get violent after taking a shower in the stuff...
Honestly, the whole reference section needs to be revamped with new material. I'm sure that among all of the members here, we could put together a rather impressive collection of recent photographs and 4K screen-captures.
Has anyone identified the jumpsuits that they're wearing? It seems like those would be ideal for people with younger busters in the family.
I tried reaching out to the company about the width and never heard back. The width of the V-ring slot should actually be about 1/8" too short. If you slightly fold in the sides of the webbing where it meets the opening in the fob, you can get a really nice fit without the material bunching up...
In no particular order...
1. Seven Samurai
2. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
3. Citizen Kane
5. 2001: A Space Odyssey
7. Batman (1989)
8. Back to the Future Part III
9. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
10. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Words escape me to describe the awesomeness of Egon and Holtzmann in the Back to the Future pose.

Unfortunately they look like home-made bombs (which is exactly what they are in-universe), and might result in getting unwanted attention from the authorities.
This is something I find curious. I know that in the originals it was 3 white men, 1 black Man. But did they have to keep that color code for ATC? Couldn't there be one Asian? Spanish? Why couldn't the smart about the city black woman be a smart about the city wisecrackin' Latina? What are your tho...
The suits don't even have the side-entry pockets, so these "official" flight suits offer no advantage whatsoever over the standard Nomex suits that are readily available.

Our '66 MM currently gets about 10 miles to the gallon, but that's without the roof rack, equipment, and passengers. I think the original Ecto-1 was right at 8 mpg.
Thanks for sharing!
I have seen that some people have used cardboard to get an outline, but having tried that method, I cannot get it accurate enough to follow the contours of the shell. Use a Pringles can as a template to cut up and fit to the contours of the shell, as it almost exactly 3" in diameter. From ther...
We're working on a '66 Miller Meteor Classic Limousine Ecto, and would also appreciate any tips or info on wiring up the deck lights and Propelloray.
Ghost Corps is essentially just a handful of Sony interns and Ivan Reitman - I really don't think they know much about the Ecto-1a.
