    Bobamaker jet pack ROTJ se paint up WIP

    Started work on this a couple of weeks ago. So far i have primed the pack white which will serve as a base colour for when i start layering, replaced the cross head fixings with slotted screws, fitted the aluminium beacon and stabalizer and painted and fitted the greeblies. The greeblie to the left in the recess has been modified to resemble reference pictures and the push button on the left underside has been replaced with a working button to operate a white LED in the beacon. First colour has been added to the rocket which i will paint next...

    Here is the finished rocket, layered using Humbrol paints including a couple of translucent colours i haven't used before, these had the desired effect...

    Quite enjoyed masking the pack ready for the next stage. Used Tamiya tape for the edge and filled out with expensive 3M blue decorators tape.

    Thought so! This will be a great resource for how to paint the ROTJ pack for sure. Seen a lot of lid paint ups, but not a lot of these.

    The detail is amazing, subscribed!

    So finally got around to adding the blue sections on the JP. Firstly I masked off the base white detail, then airbrushed the silver, then masked the silver/ white damage, then airbrushed the blue. During this process the finer scratches were not masked. These were scratched through the paint after airbrushing. This is the same process I use when painting a helmet, although the damage on the JP appears to be partly scratches through the paint layers and certainly more erratic than the helmet. Because of this I have been less concerned with complete accuracy, more over trying to achieve the general feel of the JP...

    Dear Captain Awesome,

    I am going to swap jet packs with you when you are not looking.

    I probably should not have posted that.



    Hugs and kisses,

    Matty PP
