Hey Daniel, Thanks for building and uploading this prop! I noticed when building mine that as others have stated the rectangular posts are missing from the battery pack. Another thing I noticed is that the holes for the light and toggle switch are also on the left side of the pack not the right. This piece needs to be mirrored before you print it. I've fixed this part and can send it to you if you want...just let me know. Thanks again for a great prop!

Yes please do, I will add it to the files. email me at my first name @bethere.ws

I uploaded the fixed door bolts. What I ended up doing was trimming the original bolts down and used them to mount the wheels which worked perfectly. I simply cut them to size then after attaching the wheels melted the plastic and basically made a plastic rivet.

And the 3 rectangular posts inside the battery box are missing. You do have the 3 holes in the outer shell that are meant to line up with these posts though. Just some positive critism:)

Maybe it's just me but I was fitting the parts together with netfabb and It seems that the battery compartment doesn't fit right over the handle. Like the notch in the battery compartment isn't deep enough.

That is correct, after it printed I had to cut a little off the notch for it to fit but then forgot about it and never fixed the model :)

Ever planning on fixing that piece? I'm building a trap using your files and they're great. Thanks. Oh and the trap door pins need to be smaller in diameter. I had to trim them down. And cut them into 4 short pins to make them work. I'll post pics soon.

Ok I figured so much.

I ain't afraid of no ghost.

Cool stuff!!!can't wait for the proton backpack :P

CRAP! I've been working on this same project for a while now. I was almost done and I haven't been able to work on it in a month or so. Oh well. Good job. I'll probably still post mine at some point. I was going off those same plans. He leaves a lot of room for variations so mine looks slightly different.

Cool you should post it! Variety is a good thing. :)

¡¡¡ Don't cross the streams !!!

YES! I was hoping folks would start doing some serious GB prop work over here.

Nicely done!

Thanks, I still need to design a foot pedal for this but I want to make it to scale and have not found any measurements yet.

I think next I will work on a PKE Meter, saving the proton pack for later. That one is going to be more complicated...

That sounds like a gadget to hack after printing, adding LEDs and such.
