I felt exactly the same way!  But when I saw the McQuarrie pack, it kinda changed my mind.  I know this isn't an exact replica of the McQuarrie version, but I'll say it is from the same family of "Utility Packs".  :D

I have a plan to explain the large tube, but not the small ones... As Kel said, greeblies just make things look good.  The large tube itself is going to be a interchangeable barrel holder.  Or quiver if you will.  I have, in the works, a rifle that will take several types of barrels that are mission specific.  And, needing a place to keep them which is readily accessible, I am going to house them in that.  That portion of the pack will be functioning.

That actually sounds like the best idea. I love that. Are you planning on incorporating your E-clip from the pistol in any way also?

Dude!!!  Just reading that gave my an apostrophe, like a bolt of lightning struck my brain. (Name the movie that is from!)  Anyway...  Since the e-clip is universal, the utility pack needs to be powered somehow, so... ipso facto, presto chango and other latin sounding words...  I'm going to add a place for the e-clip to go.  Probably wear I have that black ring... since I won't need to cut it.  Well, that's my idea currently.  The pack is an ever changing creature...

Thanks for the inspiration!

*Finishing the quote*

"Cap'n, I think I just had an Apostrophe. . ."
"I think you mean 'Epiphany'. . ."
"Yes. . . it hit me. . . just now. . . like lightning. . . ."
"Oh that must've hurt. . . ."

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Sorry, couldn't help it. ;)

Backpack looks great so far! Looking forward to more pics!

Never be sorry for quoting a movie... it what makes us who we are...

And pics may be a bit slow as once I get into it, I can't stop to take pics.  Maybe I'll have my wife come out and take one of me while I'm working on it.  There's a lot of bondo and sanding right now... and 3 or 4 different things I'm working on for the pack.  Apply bondo here, glue that, sand this... etc...

Thanks for the encouragement!
