I'm wondering because I'm planning on going as a GB next halloween and I wanted to know if it were possible to built a pack durig my summer holidays plus any other. How long did it take to build yours?

a few months. i downloaded my plans on valentines day and worked pretty steadily on it on the evenings and weekends for a couple of months and then I tinker with it for a day every now and then. it was a month before halloween before I accepted mine as done.

It also depends on how fast you can work, how well you work with tools, how much money you got and what rate you can get it, and how accurate and detailed you want it to be. Mine is only detailed enough to be recognizable, and only took a couple of days. But with the planning added in it took a couple of weeks.

i think i started on my second one in august. life was kinda low for me then, and buildin makes me feel alright. its looking way better than my old one, i just need to make a gun, glue it all together, and i'll be all set to rock guavaween.

my first pack took nonstop work 5pm to 5 am one in october last year. 4 years to get the stuff together...

It took me a couple of months. I started in late July/early august and finished a couple of days ago.
