-Blue and Red Tubes from Power cell to Sync Generator (and those 1/4 inch split loom pieces) slipping out.
-The silver resistor hanging off the opposite side of the pack from the gun. Mostly because mine was just epoxied on and not screwed, but if it take the right hit it comes flying off.
-We have no idea how it happened but a crank knob from the Gearbox was ejected at a high speed and lost. These were also just epoxied on but for Mark 2 we thought of getting actual potentiometers for them- what do you guys use?
-Red tube and the banjo from the proton gun getting pulled off and dangling (even saw what appears to be a rubber band holding this on in the Funny or Die Ghostbusters skit)
-One MAJOR fall of the proton gun, after the hose got caught on a piece of the set and the actor was walking forward. Any tips on keeping the main hose from being unruly? (I blame myself, not the actor). This also broke the (plastic) wand holster on the proton gun. Any good metal alternatives you'd recommend?
-The green tube with two legris straights gets pulled out constantly, whether from the legris straights or the tube itself. It's just always in the way enough that it gets snagged. How did you attach it to your guns? And how did you attach the tube to the legris straights?
-Not so much the set, but in the build, the trigger parametric (metal circlet at the very end of the proton gun clear plastic tube) is VERY thin and fragile- how do you attach it securely without breaking it?
Also question: for those of you with fiberglass packs do these kind of breaks happen often? If they do does it set you back much money? All in all even with a major hit to one of our cylcotrons (I watched in horror as it shattered into four pieces on filming day 2) the price for fixing four packs to full status as if they were good as new will be about 25 bucks, is that comparable to other types of builds?
I know "be careful" is always a nice tip- but we're making a movie and crap happens and we need solutions on the fly, people who walk the con floors what do you have in your pockets for repairs? Thanks ahead of time!
