    Ok, I post the building's pics.
    When I bought the proton pack(without electronics & proton wand), it was in bad condition.

    So it was the time to restore it.

    First I took off Proton pack's labels

    Second, I took off the rings(they was in cardboard),

    and I remade plastic rings.

    Well, Cyclotron's holes were too big, I finally put a wood plate and sealing plaster to stop up holes.

    When it dry, I sand down the sealing plaster.

    After that I put plastic rings and drill 4 holes.

    next I put polyester primer on the pack and I sand down it

    Between that, I started Arduino Electronics

    That was the power cell circuit.

    It was the sound font(Vs1053b of Adafruit)

    Well, I started work for the wand.
    I bought a wand kit from Recast Relics

    And I made some pieces from the wand

    I found a plasma tube for my wand



    I put a luxeon led to make a blast effect

    Next, I continue for assemble pieces of the proton wand

    DSCN7812.JPG DSCN7828.JPG DSCN7814.JPG

    I put electronics, led, button, plasma tube, aluminium tubes, and the wand's pieces, and the wand was finally done
