The base cabinet rests on a low furniture dolly and all parts fit inside to be wheeled into the booth location for setup.Kudos to you for using MDF. When I had to work with it as a theater carpenter I found it challenging to work with and kinda heavy. About how much does each unit weigh? Do you just carry them or end up using a hand cart/dolly?
This is very cool. Some inspiration stuff to keep in mind when I start promoting my own project.
Thank you PerniciousDuke. My hope is that all regiments have a recruiting station in the future. The overall attitude towards us and our message was very well received. We went from being a group that was just hanging out together to delivering what we are about...Embracing our love of Halo, a global community of Builders and Crafters, that are helping each other make outstanding armors and lifelong friends! It was much more fruitful to discuss what it is that we are about and that we if you are looking for a costume community we are the place to be!Wow, I almost missed this..
Really fantastic job on this booth. I wish we had one and I will be bookmarking for future reference.
I think the first round of racks you showed me is perfect. I have access to a large CNC so if you set the file up created at full size I will have one cut. I would like to see this easily broken down however into maybe 5 pieces. Maybe use some kind of dovetailing or slotting system to put together.I'm going to look in-game Halo 5 for some new weapon racks. Then I'll get to modeling and convert them to a pep file (considering that pretty much all of us have Pepakura, I think that would be easiest. I have access to a CNC router, so I could cut some of them out that way and have them fully detailed. Would take some work as I have a smaller machine, but heck, it would be worth it. I'll also export some DXF file stuff for you to use if you choose to.
OK, cool. Will do.I think the first round of racks you showed me is perfect. I have access to a large CNC so if you set the file up created at full size I will have one cut.

Yeah, I understand that. Asgardianhammer did a fantastic job, but check out TurboCharizard's post:
Take the smaller racks as a solution for that. They're light, and break down super small. Really like that concept art you posted, too, Cmdr.Curse my hatchback not being able to fit one of these to take out to conventions. Time to look for fellow 405th West Coasters with a truck/van.
Yes, I will be doing the racks I posted earlier. Look at my first post on this thread and click the attachment:You can make smaller racks then, IMO 405th is better suited strictly UNSC.
Don't worry, I planned on keeping the UNSC aesthetic.Could you do some Halo: Reach or Halo 5 style weapons racks? I could 3D model all that stuff for you via Solidworks or Fusion 360 to speed up the process. I think it would be a cool thing to set up at cons for weapon displaying. I'm talking about the weapon racks that are more like this:

Just something with the more futuristic aesthetic. They would also be pretty easy to break down into pieces for easy storage/transport. They would look really nice, be lightweight, easily transported, and (most importantly) hold lots of guns.
If you need anything let me know! Ashuraa knows how to reach me also.Ashuraa has spoken. Guess I shall be building one of these for our yearly at Sci Fi Valley con. <sighs and roams off toward the shop with a pile of info to consult with>
But Seriously Beautiful work. I am truly looking forward to building one of these for us here in Colonial for the shows that Ashuraa and I can make it to.
who doesnt Ashuraa know how to reach? Look at the bright side when she reaches out to me it is generally a Pelican across the side of my head because I am being a pain in the backside husband.If you need anything let me know! Ashuraa knows how to reach me also.
