These two pieces have taken me three days. I'm doing a little bit to each part as I have time.

Last night and today was PPDBOX1. I'm glad it's over...

Image

Image

Thank God for masking tape or I would be covered in Super Glue.

Image

Image

DONE! (Actually, I will need to go back and tighten up some parts in the morning but I'm DONE looking at this part for awhile...)

I found them at Joann's Fabrics, they were the most inexpensive of the nice scissors they had. So far they cut nicely.

Sunday and today was the CRANKGEN -

This pile of foil backed card stock will become a box... Even if it kills me.

Image

Image

BOX!

Image

Yes, I chased the dog around the house while making a NOM-NOM-NOM sound... Who are you to judge me?

Image

I need to tighten up a tab on the left.

Image

One step closer...

Spent yesterday and ALL of today on the Cosmetic Plating and it was going great... Until I put the last three panels together and the whole deal warped. I tried going back and seeing if I could adjust the problem. Rip. Rip. Tear. TRASH!

Instead of punching a hole in my wall and possibly waking the baby I think I will drink some Fat Tire Winter Ale until I no longer care...

Try #2 in the morning.

Try #2 = GREAT SUCCESS! (I'll spare you the Borat thumbs up image. We have all seen it. And now you see it in your mind as you read this... Sorry about that.)

COSMETIC PLATING

Image

Image

Image

So this was the point that the last one started warping and I did not notice it until I was pretty much done. This time I built the part up as much as I could until I got to the point that I could add the curved pieces. I got those tagged in nice and even. Then as I built the rest I made adjustments as I went along to keep the whole part laying flat.

Image

DONE!

Next up the spacer...

Nice!
Its good to see all went well. The spacer is easy once you get started.
My only advise is trace out those alignment marks like PC did in his thread.
Oh and your through MOST of the tricky stuff. I say most because the cyclotron is.. fun. :)
Everything looks really clean so far. Keep it up!

Cyclotron time! Been a Hell of a week and have not had the time to spend on this that I would like but today was pretty open so I finished this up -

Image

Image

Proton Charger had some issues with this part and if he had issues I KNEW I WOULD! To be safe I extended all the tabs on these parts like so -

Image

Image

N-Filter space -

Image

Image

Image

Image

Backed in foil -

Image

Time for the Thrower!

I'm actually going to make five of these and five of the bumpers since the other guys in my group need them and so does my v1 Proton Pack. I LOVED this part of the build! Really well laid out part and a lot of fun!

First, check this -

So simple and easy. LOVED IT!

The only thing I think I will do different on the other four is to use a flat bottom instead of the recessed part.
