Hello Folk's....My names Bart, and I wanna be a Ghostbuster when I grow up ( and have for the last 30 odd years or so....)

So yesterday I took the plunge and ordered up some .125 styrene sheets and a couple sizes of acrylic tube. Got the plans printed out and I'm ready to get on with this bad boy.

Heres to getting some templates plotted out and getting ready to slice and dice some styrene when it gets here.......

Looks like the styrene sheet will be arriving tomorrow so I styed up late last night and laid out the first template.

Yeah baby! Subscribed to this thread.

Look into getting a spst or spdt 12v relay, .1uf resitor, and dpdt momentary push button for the plasma tube. That thing throws off crazy emf making things go wonky. I just bought the relay and resistor Sunday and need to get them in line. Shhh, don't tell my build thread, I haven't told it yet lol.

OK lets see some REAL progress for a change! I started assembling the gunbox. First up I rough sanded everything to get a good fit. Then I used a heat gun to bend the side /top section, draping it over a piece of pvc pipe to get a uniform radius

I cleaned up the front piece of the curve to make sure everything lined up nicely......

Front bits glued up and doing a little rough sanding. Like how everything is fitting together. Note also the tube of Weld On 16. the only glue I will ever use on this kinda project.....Fantastic stuff

Also on a different front I repurposed an old jacket (well my Mom did) by sewing a No Ghosts Logo over a Public atey Insignia that I'm no longer associated with........
