PostSubject: Ghostbusters Ghost Trap Prop   Thu Oct 25, 2018 10:57 am

I've been working on some Ghostbusters props lately.  Always loved the original Ghostbusters.  One of the first props I ever made back in the day was a proton pack for a costume party.  Wasn't completely accurate to the movies but I did the best I could using the pause button on the VCR heavily!  But now that I have a 3D printer I've been working on some of the props that I always wanted to make back in the day but never got a chance to make.  Namely, the Ghost Trap and pedal, the PKE Meter, the Goggles, and the Nutrino Wand.  So I started building the trap, and it came out very nicely.  Made it so that I can put electronics in it later if I need to, but for now it's just a static trap.





I tried several different methods, I may end up at some point remaking this once more out of metal, but it really didn't come out looking too bad on it's own.

Top work, that looks the business, and perfect timing for Halloween! How long did it take to build? It's a pretty big piece of kit all in all. Be good to see it with the electronics if you ever do go down that route. Look forward to seeing your other Ghostbusters creations.

I plan to put the electronics in at a later date... I made these things so they can be opened and all the lights and effects can be put inside later. I've got a bunch more that'll I'll be posting soon. Love the hilt... Very cool!
