    Re: "4 year old" Shiny Boba Armor

    OK! I'm far enough into the Jet pack to post some pics...

    I've had so much fun building this!

    Again taking the things around me and using them to my advantage...





    Gluing some stuff...


    Trimmed off tubes and capped off. Also capped tops with sculpted foam toppers...


    Put this top thing in...


    Then I put the Directional thrusters, stabilizing gyro & missile targeting range finder...


    Using $ store foam foot balls...



    Then I took a metal rod and filed it sharp and shoved it through the Missile so it would be sturdy.

    And after all is said and done...
    a Miniature Jet pack...


    I'm going to give this a few coats of a caulking wash "just a mixture of water, elmers glue & silicone caulking" to fill in any gaps and give a strong shell.

    =) Thomas.

    this looks like this could end up as one of those classic threads that will be viewed for years!! are you going ESB with it or ROTJ?

    This build has been so much fun! & when My son saw it for the first time last night and we held the pieces up to him his eye's were filled with excitement but he has learned some patience and is waiting.

    ESB or ROTJ? I'm new I have no Idea what that means... Please learn me.

    He means the color scheme of the jet pack. Green as ESB or multi-colored as in ROTJ.

    It's blue with yellow and maroon.. I went with what I thought was the original look with the blue jet pack.

    Re: "4 year old" Shiny Boba Armor & Jet Pack

    I've cut the bucket out of foam last night. All the pieces are there I just have to put them together... I will take lots of pics so when I'm done you all can see how I did it.

    Thanks everyone for your encouragement!

    This project is.....SO CUTE!!! I cannot wait until I see your son dresses as "LITTLE BOBA"!

    Reminds me of a "LIFE VERSION" of the GALACTIC HEROES figures....somehow. Too cute to resist. Keep the progress going, and don't forget to post completed pics of your kid... in FULL ARMOR.

    Thanks everyone! I'm working the kinks out of his bucket while making sure it's not "bobble head" when I 'm done.
    I will post pic of him for sure when I'm done, remember I still have his gauntlets to finish.
