I'm Peter or Peet. Since I was a Child I wanted a GB Proton Pack. I think you all know that need :-p
A good friend know a guy which collect some replicas and this man had an "old" selfmade Proton Pack
which one he brought from Great Britain.
I was very happy and euphoric as he said that he will sell it to me for... Okay I don't want to tell you, because it was way too much in my eyes after I had that Pack in my hands. But Ok.
Here is the picture my friend send me:
At frist glance, a very nice Pack (for me). I saw that the colors from the tubing are not correct, but so what, I'll will replace them and I'll have a very nice Pack But...
As soon as the Pack was at home I saw the big bunch of work... 97% of all parts are only hotglued. 85% of the parts are not well 3d printed, screws incl.! Most of the parts fall apart at the moment when I touched them... The decals are printed on paper. The whole bodypart is warped or bended to the middle (see next picture). BUT I will take care of that.
Within 25min all parts are removed:
A bunch of parts I've ordered already here in the shop, the decals from here I can print at work on vinyl. Next part to recreate some parts with help from my dad:
In the next weeks I'll fill all holes then sanding and repaint. I'll update here after every update on the Pack.
And that's the christmas present from beautiful life partner... I love her so much
Greetings, Peet and stay healthy!
