    XD the screen is actually made from a perforated plastic sheet used for crocheting. It was great because the perforations were so small that if I just spray painted it black, it literally looked like an opaque surface. ^^

    And how I wish I had a G1 shockwave to show off! ^^

    It took about two weeks to make, and it was made in my off hours after work. ^^ I would estimate about 70-90 hours. Though, a lot of that time was just actually thinking about how some of the mechanisms would work.

    Thanks for all the comments!
