The plans as they exist now are the ones that've been available for a couple of years, Sean isn't working on any revisions of them at the moment.

Why the Sean Bishop's Prop Plans don't show for each part what it represent for the whole proton pack? It should be more easy this way.
Every plan it's the same. I'm a visual person. :-(

It seems there might be a bit of a language barrier here...

While Sean's plans are a bit out-dated, they're still great for first-time builders. They're easy to follow and can help you build a really nice pack. It's too bad that those plans were never finished, though.

Supposedly he's working on a new set of plans, but there hasn't been much public discussion about them for a few months.



If you're wanting to see a schematic of the whole pack, I would recommend Stefan's plans. These plans are also far from perfect, but are still very useful:

I hope that helps! :)

Because the dimenions are all that's important, the material is totally up to you. Some people are better using wood, others plastic, cardboard, foam or metal. You can use the plans no matter what you want to work with.

Use metal parts where the real hero packs used metal parts. If your doing a complete scratch built shell metal is not accurate nor intelligent... But badass. And unless your pretty savvy with measurement, welding, and metal fab work, pretty much impossible.

It sounds like you need to buy a fiberglass shell and take it from there first.

Fiberglass and resin are one in the same.

I mean if you use one you need the other.

If you want to build it cheap check out Protonchargers pepakura plans. Card stock, aluminium duct tape, and superglue will get you started.

Others have used these plans with styrene or sintra and have had very nice results.
