So after 11 months and roughly £1800 later, it's done. Quite the learning curve and a few frustrating moments but I've enjoyed every minute of making my childhood dream a reality. I've definitely caught the prop building bug and ill be starting other projects in the near future, and use what I've learned from my first ever build of a prop to good use!
Also a massive thanks to BenofKent, Throwingchicken, tobycj, RedSpecial, RJ from Freekygeeky and all the guys on GBfans who helped me along the way with my build. Couldn't have done it without you guys.
Now it's just a case of finding any and all opportunities to suit up and make the most of my pack!
Now for the obligatory pics to show off...
