Hey everybody! Here's my latest build, a GB1 Particle Thrower/Proton Gun. This particular replica has been built to replicate the thrower used on-screen by Bill Murray in the original Ghostbusters (as part of the "Minnesota" hero proton pack) I've completed the build recently after accumulating the most accurate parts possible for the last couple of years. My thrower is as close as the screen-used thrower as I could make it; it's all made from aluminum, all the (identified) parts are the same vintage parts that were used on the real gun (including the Legris banjos, the OEM heat sink, the hat lights and the tubing) and the electronics reproduce the light sequence seen in the movie. Also, the grips were cast from screen-used grips and all the hardware holding everything together (including the rivets and socket cap screws) are the correct type and size. The front handle rotates, and the green lever activates the popping of the clear barrel. I'm forgetting a lot of stuff, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Here they are, in no particular order.
