    I do believe that I'm the adopting parent of this one. Fresh out of the mold and I'm already a proud father.

    After trimming the flashing, sanding, and primer I cut out the back access panel. My current method of reattaching the back panel is low tech.

    More progress pics, I've been asked why don't I have the piano keys molded in. The answer is , I only have one JP body mold. The "base" of the pack will serve as a Classic and Arena JP. So with that said I add the piano keys after. Yep, I glue them one piece at a time, fun stuff.

    Casted up a few more parts of the kit. Glued down the base of the rocket, aka the Castle Ring. Fitted the rocket into its base.

    Re: Birth of a Jet pack

    Haven't posted much on the jet pack build lately, so the next update is for an Arena pack kit I'm developing. The bits in the photo are the side bolts on the Jango pack. The title of the photo is call "scratch, mold and cast"
    I know this is a Boba thread, but it all stems from the same JP, its all good.

    Nice work mate. Has anyone got any specs or picks on the switches that appear on the bottom of the jet pack and where they are placed?

    Reference photos for the electrical connectors at the bottom of the pack can be found in the "Gallery".
