Hi All! If you missed my introduction in the intro thread my name is Alan and I live in Chicago near Wrigleyville. I have a wonderful and patient wife and a 15 month old daughter. By day I work at home as a graphics designer. I like beer and sometimes perform improv.
I won't lie, it has been intimidating to post here. You are all AMAZINGLY talented! But I thought I would share my Pep pack build (files unfolded by Adam VanDuyn ProtonCharger / THEMANWOANAME) this was my first attempt at anything like this. Before I had seen Adams thread on GBfans I had never even heard of Pepakura. Now I love it! The build took 8 months total. I'll give a more abridged version here.
Few of the first pieces -
It was around this point that I REALLY started hating superglue. Like.. HATES ITS! WE HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATESSSSSSSSSSSSSS ITSSSSSSSSSSS!
On a side note, my Proton Pack fit into my china cabinet.
I would not have gotten through the above piece without some of the threads on the RPF. It warped on me bad and literally had me ready to trash the whole deal. But after reading through some of your incredible builds making entire suits of armor I bucked up, took my time and went at it a few different ways and it worked out!
DONE WITH THE MAIN BODY! I did make a Cyclotron but later in the build it warped and I ended up buying one from the UK.
Gun Body -
This is why I love Pepakura! Flat piece of card stock... Cut, fold and glue! You got a shape!
More later... Thanks for looking!
