Over the course of the last few weeks, I've been slowly procuring parts for a more accurate GB1 hero pack! I was lucky enough to snag one of Pchrisbosh1's most excellent fiberglass shells which arrived in the mail a few days ago, as did a beautiful GB1 ribbon cable from Sephiroth. Based on the advice of PssdffJay and Pchrisbosh1, I've gone to Freeky Geeky (the inimitable Umoribawar) for all the aluminum parts (booster tube, ppd, hga, ion arm, etc. etc.) and I've placed an order with the gbfans shop for a bunch of the greebles. I'm also planning on using Nick-a-tron's new hero bumper and booster frame. The plan is to hunt/gather parts over the summer and start my build in the fall. Once I figure out how to post pics, I will, so bear with me as I try to figure out how not to ruin this beautiful shell.
