    Very nice build looks great. I do have one suggestion (although I don't know if you were looking for any so I'm sorry if I'm out of line here) There is a detail you could add on the booster/eda. Corner is knocked off in the lower left side. Here is a picture of mine.
    [​IMG]

    I should find a picture of one of the screen used ones but you get the idea from the pic.

    Actually it's a whole bevel, all the way down. Trying to find a pic from a screen used too. ;)

    And if I may, I have a suggestion of my own: the filler tube and beam line both have a base plate welded to them. It's a square plate, 1/8" thick, 1 1/2" to a side. Here they are on my pack (no it doesn't have the bevel either :p)

    Perfect, every detail is there, may I ask please what is the dome in between the lc1 frame and the mobo? Looks like a bell?

    This "Dome" is a rubber to hold the mobo, i used a rubber door stopper, already back adhesive, just drill a hole for the carriage bolt then paint it b;ack, voila :)

    Nick-A-tron, the best available, the only way to have a much accurate is to scratch build one with the accurate material :)

    Honestly, the amount of detail and accuracy in this pack is amazing. I love when people use exact vintage parts. The dots on the cyclotron lenses and the wearing away of the paint on the grips are two of my favorite details on Proton Packs. The only thing I notice that I think needs work is the radius on your cyclotron's bevel. It seems to sharp in comparison to the real packs. Check out the new reference on GBFans of the Sony lobby packs and you'll see what I mean.

    Otherwise, this is an absolutely spectacular proton pack and one that will be remembered and envied for years.

    Thanks for the kind word!! A pack, like any props is never totally done, by the time of this picture i added detail and i changed some things, add weathering.

    @ATimeForHeroics : Yah i noticed that, same thing for the bevel in the down left corner of the EDA box, i think im just too lazy for sandind the fiberglass at this time :p

    On the update i changed my HGA to a more accurate one, My old one was a bit too smaller.
    [​IMG]

    Second i completely rebuilt my N-Filter, now he is 3'' OD Accurate! With the grill and mesh inside of course.

    Also changed the 1/4'' thick foam for the correct 1/2'' one.

    And some shot and close cut of the general weathering...

    Amazing work. I am a lover of detail and I found myself up close to the monitor looking at this one. Beautiful, beautiful work.

    I really want to build this - kind of intimidating, though - so many parts to find!

    Good luck on the real cable. You'll be heralded as a King in the GB Community when you locate/ID it lol. Last guy who claimed to have found one was a fake and just trying to raise a scene. The bellows, on the other hand, I'm not sure if it's been ID'd or not, but good luck with both!

    yah im not so much optimistic :) My Home made cable and bellow replica are very accurate visually. But when you're an accuracy maniac you cant stop^trying to find the real deal! :p When i got the 4MM Legris Elbow i got that new hope that everything can find find somewhere :)

    Ill put a video of my light kit and sound setup soon, sound setup still on work :)

    That's a quality pack right there. :)

    Nice build. And solid weathering too. It drives me nuts when someone spends so much time on a build then ruins it with horrible weathering.

    Well done.

    Is your thrower mostly made out of resin parts?

    All parts are genuine parts except for the side disk, they are resin, they was molded in the gun kit, but i putted a real screw on them to add realism.
