Greetings all, I thought I would share the early stages of my first build. First a few quick notes about my thrower and eventually my pack. I am not going for 100% screen accuracy.

I decided to go aluminum for strength while keeping it somewhat light. This will probably be a fairly slow build, I'm shooting for a Jan 2010 completion.
Here is what all of this will hopefully end up looking like, my inspiration:
