    Trophy Points:
    I could use help designing a Gears of War - Boom Shield ( Boomshield )

    This is my first mechanical project, so I may not know all the tools or possibilities, but the goals is a fully operating shield.
    I plan to use it for Larp, so I hope it is:

    relatively light weight,
    Opens/closes symetrically,
    Locks in open/closed positions,

    The rest is up to creativity. I am thinking of a few design ideas, like drawer slides, and the front and edges being foam for safety and carving/detailing ease.
    I am currently googling and will keep this posted with progress. Feel free to point me at other similar projects, I am here to learn from you guys!

    Thanks in advance!
