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.


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)

Thanks for the good comment, indeed the bevel is a very interesting detail but it will need to sand my Fiber shell and fill itwith putty and i dont feel to it atm LOL but any suggestion are always welcome!!

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.


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...


































And the weathering on the thrower












Next step and last (i think) finding a real bellow and a Genuine GB1 Cable...Whew... I know!

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

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!
