I've been building my very own pack from scratch for the past month or so, and decided I should probably put something up on the forum here for everyone to see (and learn from all my mistakes hahaha). I've had pics up on the fan props section for a while but sometimes its nice to have a bit of a story to go with it....
This is my first pack of any kind. I've always wanted my very own proton pack since I was a kid, and to see how many other people have got one AND built them to the exact specs as the movie is just mindblowing.
I'm working on having it all done in time for my 30th birthday in July, and hopefully it'll be a huge talking point of the night seeing as not many people in my home city of Adelaide, Australia have made one hahaha!
its been a labour of love so far - I'm spending WAY too much of my time at work building it instead of doing real work hahaha But I plan to keep this one for myself to display at home. I will build more after this, but I'd probably prefer to buy them in shell form next time and speed up the process.
For this pack everything is made from PVC. I'm trying to build as much of it myself as possible, but for the harder to get items like gun knobs and grips etc, I have just this minute ordered parts from nick-a-tron. His parts look awesome and I cant wait for them to arrive so I'll post new pics when they come in.
At the minute most of the construction work is done on my particle thrower, just need to add the final little bells and whistles then paint. Lights and sound will be added in the future, I'm probably thinking replicaprops and jupiter electronics, but I'll look into those a bit more. Any feedback on your own experiences with these will be a huge help.
Thats about it for now, I'll post more pics as I go.
