    Jul 22, 2008, 3:11 PM - Boba and Jango Packs #1

    Hey guys,

    I wanted to do something to give a little back to this great community seeing as it gives so much to us budding Mandos.

    Some may have seen my Fett gauntlet thread where I've modelled the gauntlets in 3D and intend to use Pepakura to unfold them to produce 2D templates similar to WoF templates?

    Well, those were originally done for a friend so I wanted to start something new that was actually intended for TDH members. I haven't read the latest on some of Wizardofflights threads but if I recall, he hasn't had the chane to get the Jango Arena pack done?

    Well, this morning I started to model Bobas rocket pack and have copied it and altered it to get the Jango pack done too! The modelling is very nearly done and then I'll unfold them. The templates will be made freely available here to all TDH members. Both are based on WoF blueprints.

    Here's a pic so far:

    As you may see, some of the finer detail has been left out to make the build easier as it can be added later. You can read a little more and see some more pics at my blog: http://skipspepakuracostumes.blogspot.com/

    Let me know what you guys think. :jet pack:jet pack:jet pack

    EDIT/UPDATE!

    I have finished the Jango Arena pack!!

    I've uploaded it here for you guys to download and try out. Please let me know if there are problems or if you have questions. Enjoy!!

    LOL! Thanks buddy. I know alot of the guys at the 405th do that, model something then release it for others to unfold. I'm not like that though, I prefer to see it through to the end.

    I'm starting to unfold the Areana pack now that the helmet is done. I have a question though. I need a litle help.

    How tall/high is the arena pack from thruster nozzle to the tip at the top? I need this for scaling the model so any help here is greatly appreciated!

    I really want to get this one done today. I looked at the model again before making a start on unfolding it and came to the conclusion that it was a little too low poly. Low poly is good for this kind of modelling but because this is intended to be a 1/1 scale prop when done, the cylinders and cones needed to be smoother.

    That's done now, so if someone would be kind enough to tell me the height of the arena pack, then I can scale it and unfold it today.

    Anyone?

    It should be around 25"/26" (2 feet) from top to botton or lower

    Thanks for the offer Kaane.

    Sorry Wet', I went with the Arena as it hadn't been done yet. The jet pack needs some tweaking like the Arena did. The cones and cylinders need to be smoother, more spherical, then unfolded. Sorry buddy.
