    Hello survivors,
    I am making a Pipboy 3000 mkIV from fallout 4. I know they have the collectors edition but I have a few concerns about it. 1. I worry it might be to small to fit. 2. It looks cheap and to new. 3. they are sold out everywhere. This is my first big build so any help would be appreciated. I want to be able to put my phone in it. Here's some screen grabs I got from Bethesda E3 event. I'm also going to post a link to the video of the stream if your interested in watching it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5esyZPt5Jo
    Thanks

    Concerning it being to small, they said that it would fit most common phones sizes but that doesn't really help. I'm looking to change my phone soon to the Note 4, and I don't think it will fit. I think iphone 6, Galaxy S6 size will be the biggest, I read somewhere that there are rubber inserts to accommodate differing phone sizes.

    I think the design it quite nice and not to future/retro looking and its kinda hard to say anything about the build quality since nobody has actually held it yet. The ones at E3 are all behind glass. The design could be quite sturdy since there not much internal electronics needed as theres just a few switches, the rest is all done through the phone.

    And you could always cast it (if you can find one) and try your luck at aging it with paint etc.

    How do you plan on making this? 3d print? pvc tube? card?

    I had/have same concerns you do with the replica pipboy, going to scratch build my own at some point

    Hey Chris I plan on making it with as much PVC and may later cast it. I'm going to post as much on the build as possible. So when you start yours check back and learn from my mistakes. for the arm piece I think I'm going to use one of these http://goo.gl/XxGQK4
