Been building this for a friend for DragonCon. It's roughly 3/4 scale, vaccuformed shell, scratch built scaled parts and the icing on the cake is a scratch built scaled A.L.I.C.E. Frame and straps. THAT was fun to make.

Pardon the crappy cell phone pics, but I've been in too much of a rush to take proper ones with a real camera. LOL

I don't think so. I'm sure he would have also built the custom female support system for the ALICE pack frame.

Sorry, didn't see your first post. Just PM me for details.

Didn't really take many progress pics. It's steel tubing with 3/4'' aluminum for the supports and all of the lower bits are steel sheet cut and bent.

Here's a couple of the progress pics I did take:
