    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    I got started on the wiring: While test fitting the case halves, I discovered that I had not, in fact, once tried closing the case with the insides _fully_ assembled. It turns out that the Pi-display connector fouls the side wall of the vacuum tube box. Darn. I guess there's nothing to it...

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    I didn't have any luck trying to power a Raspberry Pi 4 and the display from the power bank I have, so I ordered a Pi 3 in the hopes that the old USB is easier to work with. In the meantime I finished the padding for the arm mount: The leather straps are still *****. I _can_ just tighten them...

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    I should've known The RPF will immediately prove me wrong after making a statement like that. :D With an OD of 6.45 and an ID of 2.77mm, they quite well could've worked. The ones I have are 8mm OD and 4mm ID. The hacked up versions are about 4mm OD with a 1mm hole drilled in the middle. The...

    Yeah, crimps that small don't really exist. ;)

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    Added some rather small details: Gauge on top of the Pip-boy. Fake vacuum tubes glowing behind the grill. I don't know why RobCo left these wires on the outside, but that's what I had to do as well. A few more pics in my blog: Fallout Pip-Boy 2000 Mk.I replica – Part 4: Very small...

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    All the main components assembled for the first time: Nothing done with electronics yet, and I need to make the padding for the arm mount. Still, feels good to finally see some actual progress!

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    I got the main pieces finished! Only a few more parts to print, finish and paint. Next I need to start working on the electronics.

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    I didn't realize that was a common problem, but now that you mention it, it seems obvious. Making a mold of your arm could work, but won't that limit your wrist rotation? The shape of your arm changes when you rotate your wrist. Also, sounds sweaty. :D Not much progress with my project, I'm...

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    Well, "acrylic paint as filler" worked in some places, and less so in others. Maybe some gel type CA glue, applied with a thin wire instead would work better? For now, I'll just leave the couple of gaps in. It just adds character. I put some spray paint on the panels. I encountered some...

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    I gave the first pieces a coat of filler primer. That revealed some gaps in the prints. I don't want to try and fill them completely with the primer, as that will also get rid of detail. So, instead, I tried filling the gaps with some non-thinned acrylic paint, before going in for the sanding...

    Feature request: U2F support

    Hi Please consider adding U2F (Universal 2nd Factor) support as an option for multi-factor authentication. Thanks.

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    So, as usual, getting to the final versions of the prints is taking more iterations than expected. In the meanwhile, I think I've managed to collect all the necessary hardware for the build: In the top right corner is my first mock-up, built from PVC pipe and foamcore. :D

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    I though I was more or less finished with the design, but it turned out that I felt the need to add a bit more detail. Now I think I'm ready to print the final pieces. Things added since the last revision: – The rotary encoder and push button on the right hand side. – The “AUX” hatch on the...

    Pip-Boy 2000 "Mk. I" from Fallout 1 / Fallout 2

    Ok, it's time to get this build going. I've been dragging my feet long enough, and I figured if I posted a WIP thread in here, that'll force me to actually finish the bloody thing! :D So, I'm planning on building the original Pip-Boy, as seen in Fallout 1, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics. There's...

    Need reference pictures for old style T-51b

    Thanks for those, although they aren't quite the model I'm looking for. Dragonmaster's pictures are from FO3, which has a distinctly different design from FO 1/2. The Van Buren pictures I hadn't seen before. Quite interesting, but again a slightly different design. The one I'm looking for is...
