but of course with every shell I've owned I always find a few discrepancies but since Bjorn is such a great craftsman I've one found one so far . To others this detail would probably be nothing but since I'm a little anal when it comes to certain accuracy aspects I decided to do the fix. The powercell fins seem to be a tad to short. On the screen packs the powercell fins are about 1/2 inch wide like in Venkman71's plans.
I broke out the sharpie and did some measurements.
Then added some magic sculpt epoxy putty to sculpt the remainder of the fins
Then sanded everything flush and added a light coat of primer, still got a little bit of touch up to do but they came out nearly perfect.
The only bad part about this is I cut out the powercell window before I noticed the fins. So now I have to fill the window with some resin and re center it which should be pretty easy.
Originally I was going to go a little budget on the pack and use acrylic tubing and some resin parts but I decided to use all metal parts on the pack like screen used ones. Don't know what route I'm going with the wand yet still in the air.
The is the next job to do hack off the n-filter and add this pretty baby.
