I've had a bit of an obsession with Quicksilver's audio gear from X-Men: Days of Future Past (see my article here: http://www.tested.com/art/movies/461631-x-men-tale-portable-tape/) and a friend went as Quicksilver for NYC Comic Con, so I made a Stereobelt for her. These are the primary units to make your own Stereobelt as well as a printable cassette (although a real one will fit too).
I have complete Stereobelt kits, Battery Pack Add-ons, movie-accurate versions of the stickers printed on polyester and 1/4" headphone plugs available on my Etsy store: https://charlesworthdynamics.etsy.com
Assembly directions are available here:
These instructions reference my newest version of the belt but can still be used for assembly using these parts.
- Print one of everything unless the file is marked otherwise (ie: x13). Panels and trim are currently oriented facing the bed for a smooth finish on glass, etc. Flip over before printing if desired.
- The only part that needs support is the slider knob.
- Paint the parts or print in different colors. Everything assembles using the square pins and some glue. I used a real 1/4" phone jack and RCA jacks for the back cap. I would recommend gluing nuts inside to mount the units to a belt. There should be enough room inside for electronics if desired.
- A sticker sheet is included - they are not movie-accurate.
- If you don't have an actual cassette tape, print out the included tape and glue together. If the Hong Kong Cavaliers aren't your cup of tea, the 'tape_bottom' can be printed twice and glued together.
