I built a proton pack back when I was a kid, around the time the movie came out in '84. The only reference I had was from a behind-the-scenes broadcast (VH1?) that we recorded on VHS. For what I had to work with, it turned out great (actually it was pretty bad, but don't tell my younger self). But I always wanted to try and build something better and more accurate. Finally, 30 years later, I made a promise to myself to finally give it a go.
I'm extremely intimidated by what I see here. You guys appear as GODS when it comes to building packs. So my attempt may not even come close, but I'm gonna try anyway. I am not shooting for 100% accuracy and I'm taking a few shortcuts to keep the budget in check. I hope that doesn't disappoint anyone, and sorry if anything I do makes you cringe. Feel free to laugh at me and criticize all you want...(on second thought, just sing to me and say supportive nurturing things. )
Alright, enough introductions and disclaimers. I started collecting parts and building in February, so I'll start sharing some photos (or "pack porn" as y'all call it) of my progress in posts to come.
