    Well guys, here you go, I guess you can say my four proton packs are DONE.... Just added the labels and am I glad to be over with it. I have been working on these packs for the last year. I am estimating I have spent well over $1,600 in supplies, electronics, etc. I still have all my receipts so I will be sure to someday type all those up and give you all a good idea of what it costs to put packs like these together.

    Here is a classic photo of the packs in the beginning. IsnÂ’t it beautiful?

    Currently in the works are 2 traps. The doors open manually and plan to add some static LEDÂ’s in the traps. I still have a lot of work ahead on these so wish me luck.

    This is my personal KUD meter. A definite one of a kind.

    Is there a website or builders group that has the blueprints for making these from wood and other materials as you did. Looks great and seems like a very do-able project. I dont even really need mine to be 101% accurate just as close as i can get and yours look out of this world. LMK if you can give up any helpful resources for scratch building one

    thanks
