Either way, BustingCO sent me an awesome starter pack, it should already have most of what I need to get it finished. So over the coming days/weeks/months (dare I say years?) I'll be working on converting this over to GB1 style. There's something about the first movie that keeps me coming back and I love the look of the pack in that movie.
Here's the plan:
Review GB1 build threads for photo references.
Ask LOTS of questions.
Slowly source what I need from the shop, I already have an order started for some misc items: gun track, banjos, flight suit, patches, etc.
My pack, as it currently stands, doesn't have any electronics and some missing parts. I bought it knowing this as I didn't want to repeat the mistakes I made while building my stormtrooper armor. Overall, it's about 85-90% complete with the major assembly already being taken care of. I did receive some electronics with the pack however,and that's where I'm going to start the conversion. BustingCO sent me a wand light kit and I'm going to start with getting the wand set up with correct size tube and handle so I can run the wiring.
Here's the pack as it currently stands:
And while I figure out my first step, I'll need some jams:
Feel free to drop some input if anyone feels I need to go a certain direction during this build.
