Looks great looking forward to seeing it finished!

Are you going to let the paint pen loose on the Pack body too?

Labels look great, definitely interested in seeing your results with the brush effect when you get to it.

Getting close to completion now by the looks of it!

just waiting on replacement parts for the electronics, once I get those fitted ( hard part) I just need stickers on the wand and a few bits glue on and then its done really. All that would be left to do is weathering :D

Just don't be stupid like I was and cut it too short. Thankfully I was able to make it work.

I never had to cut it at all, any excess was simply tucked inside the packshell :D

Nice work! How/ where did you find/make the GB1 cable? I've searched high and low in Australia and can't find anything similar anywhere. Any suggestions?
