3 Full size RGB Packs
June 25th - Official build start date
After months of studying DiC plans (especially those included in the RGB box set), planning, scaling, and 3D modeling/ drafting.. I finally finished the templates for the RGB packs just in time for our first group build weekend. (Note-No dims/plans/templates will be given out) This build involves myself (ThePinkGhostbuster), Scott (Speedmonkey80), and
Nick (Mr. Spider)
I organized/designed the pack into various sections to make the building process easier.
Pack sections: Motherboard, bottom spacer, top spacer, cyclotron, gun box, yellow tube, booster box, and ion arm
Wood of choice: MDF, with the occasional use of 1/8" hard balsa, and 1/4" poplar where needed
Tools: Scroll saw, jigsaw, dremel, belt sander, hand sander, oscillating spindle sander, drill
Here are some teaser pics of the construction so far...

On a side note.. after DragonCon, we plan on doing casts of different parts of the pack (possible even gun kits).. but at this time we are focusing out finishing these 3.
