I wanted to build a really clean and detailed pack using styrene or PVC board. I wanted to build use exsisting plans, readily available materials, and a little know how.
First, I scored some free 1/8 and 1/4 PVC boards from my old work. Alot.
Then I printed Stefan's plans, Sean's plans, and the thrower plans from Hprops. From there I started the Thrower. Just as I was humming along with the thrower, something hit the internets. Thats when Protoncharger posted his build thread.
Protoncharger posted a Pep file that he created from scratch. He worked a very long time on it and is very detailed and the most accessible that I have seen that would fit my means.
So with the files in hand, I decided that I was going to use the Pep files as TEMPLATES. Then I was going to transfer the TEMPLATES to PVC.
First, I started small, and printed out the smaller parts one section at a time. Once I printed the file, I cut the tabs off, and (if I used 1/8 board) compensated by removing 1/8 off the approriate sides.
