    This is really nice. Maybe it is just a trick of the lighting, but I like that it doesn't seem as brightly colored as many of the ROTJ paint ups. Everything has a nice muted quality to it.

    Oh man.......I cant wait. I repainted my armor as I wasnt happy with the scale. This is RKDs stuff and some gaunts I just bought on here and repainted, they still need some more detail. I am going to start fitting things together very soon as I have everything I need in hand now........except that awesome jetpack!!!great work so far!!!!!!!

    A really great job! That pack looks really good. The weathering and detailing make it look very battle worn! A great job! I hope one day my painting skills are just half as good as yours!

    Thanks. I did some fitment last night and I'm really happy with the way it was coming out. I have alot left but my goal is to be ready for my sons Halloween party at school on the 26th. I have my TK and clone for back up, but he really wants Boba.

    Well, here she is (minus the beacon and stabilizer-they're still drying). This was a really fun paint up and has inspired me to get going on my own Man of War V1 Jetpack (which I'm going to mod and sell in order to get a V2).

    Dan, some of the ref pics have a red dot in the center of the thrusters and thruster caps. The ref pics that I used were from the AOSW pack and it did not have them. Let me know if you would like it with or without the red. Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to paint this Rocket Pack.

    My personal thought is not to add the red dot because there isn't on the original ROTJ jetpack. I think that the red dot is from the camera's flash:

    But this is your decision... You are so lucky with this jetpack. Congratulations!

    I have gotten my Jet Pack. As Im sure you all know.....Paul is a pro. Great product, great to deal with, you feel like your money is well spent. The jet pack and helmet makes my suit. He did a great job and always is in contact and gives advice when asked for it. Great guy! cant say enough......Thanks.
