    Yeah, sorry about this one. I've been a tad busy with things. I didn't rate the rocket pack as a priority seeing as WoF had one for ya. I'll get on it soon though.

    LOL! Sorry buddy.

    Though I am spending this week trying to catch up on completing long overdue projects! Today I'm working on a Hayabusa helmet I started a few months back. I have a list in front of me and the Boba pack IS on it.

    Thanks very much bro. A good friend of mine read my earlier post and has even offered to help unfold the Boba pack for me!! This may get done even sooner now!

    I just need to check it over before sending it to him. I'll update as soon as I know what's happening.

    IT'S DONE!!

    I couldn't sleep this morning so I put some time into finishing it. Sorry it took so long guys, I know some have been waiting patiently to try it out.

    The templates are currently in PDO format, so Pepakura Viewer or Designer is needed to open and print them. I will do the PDFs too soon.

    I've started the arena jet pack using a mix of 1 and 2 ply chipboard. so far I have the main structure and the center warhead done. I did the "frame" of the pack (the non round parts) in the two ply for strength. And the round parts (tubes and cones) in the thinner one ply. Sorry for the lack of pictures just yet, but I am very pleased with the results so far.

    If its ok with skip I'll take some pictures of my progress to add to his thread here.

    Thank you again for sharing your talent.

    Absolutely!! Let us see it!!

    I'm happy that people are having success with the Arena pack! It bodes well for the rocket pack seeing as both are virtually identical.

    Thank you "T". I'm thinking of trying out a Pepakura Boba blaster??? Not sure how it may come over though. I'll have to look into it.

    That would be pretty cool. An ESB should be fairly simple. An ROTJ blaster might come out pretty well too, although, there would be a lot of folding for the barrel.

    I was going to do it "greeble-less" so you'd get the basic weapon done. I'll have to start and see how it comes across.

    Pretty much yeah. Then if the build is successful, people could add the greebles and mods themselves?

    Here is it so far I started cleaning up the joints as I was working on the cones. Most of this is the 2 ply chipboard. I attached several of the templates and made long lateral strips of parts. basically the sides that face the backplate are now two pieces (top and bottom) and the main structure is on the front is 2 pieces, top and bottom with the folds scored so the line up nice and crisp. The caps that surround the side tanks are separate pieces as are the rectangularish pieces that join to the main tank. Skip did a fine job separating the pieces so they will print to regular printer paper, but if you are using a large sheet of cardstock, chipboard, matboard, etc, using fewer larger pieces will save a lot of time.

    I'm not happy with the side tanks not fitting properly and causing them to oval slightly, but that is my own fault in the execution not the design. I'll fix it though.

    From what I can see, you're off to a good start.

    One thing I wouldn't have done though. I wouldn't have scored and folded along the fold lines in any of the cylinders. I would have used the fold lines as a guide for lining up the glue tabs, but bent the card around the end caps to give a smoother outer surface.

    By folding them like that you'll have to put more work into making them rounded and smooth.

    Other than that I think it's looking good buddy. Well done!

    Question... if I were to make this out of Posterboard (Matboard) how much would I need... I was looking online and found some 32"x40" sheets, how many of those would I use for the jet packs (Jango probably arena style)

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Well, you'd have to work out how many sheets of A4 or Letter size you'd get from one of those large sheets of posterboard. Then take it from there.
