I was pretty stoked about how it was coming together until I noticed that all the boxes I had bought were too shallow & that if I built up the cyclotron to the right dimensions the pack would look all wrong.
I could've let it go & soldiered on, but my OCD tendencies roared to life & was about to scrap the whole idea & just focus on the uniform instead.
Then I stumbled across Lordgilpin's foam core thread. FOAM CORE! "Perfect!" I thought to myself. Another budget solution to building a close enough to screen accurate pack. I could do that! How hard could it be?
More the fool, I.
I just want to say how impressed I am by all of you Ghostheads who have taken on the Herculean task of scratch building one of these pigs. Be it out of MDF, electrical boxes, foam core, EVA foam or paper mâché - you're all insane artists & crafts people & I bow down to you all.
So I went out & bought a crap ton of said foam core, a few hobby knives, glue & a cutting board and got to work. This thing may well be the death of me.
