I might not be afraid of ghosts (okay, I actually am), but I am a little intimidated by the thought of building a proton pack. RPF user chefbzd built two for his sons though, and he took a smart approach. He started by printing an image of the basic housing and used it as a pattern. He then built up the pack from: “styrofoam, craft foam, and random objects.”
The way the packs come together is impressive, and you can see it happen in photos over at The RPF. Other materials used in construction include:
Red gels for the cyclotron eyes and added one more coat of paint. Lights will be installed later. I also cut the motherboards, which will be attached to custom PVC A.L.I.C.E. frames for support.
