    the yellow section ...

    *first.. lots of tape..

    *I liquid masked the silver bits in the yellow section of the pack.. including the damage that appears in the black ring
    *I used yellow 154 and laid down a nice coat and let dry
    *I masked off the black ring and used black 33
    *For the weathering this time i used grey 106 ... then came back with a little black 33
    *I put symbols on with a fine paintbrush and black 33

    *Que brooding yet inspiring musical piece* I was so close .. you know? ... i could taste it... but there was a hint of bitterness ... something i couldn't quite put my finger on, but was glaring me right in the face.. and i knew .. maybe i had known the whole time.... but now?.. now it was obvious .. my jet pack needed a giant wooden moustache

    well i couldn't leave it alone .. before i could paint the blue section i just had to fill in the gap between the Rocket and back piece. Much like the piano key incident, I didn't notice this until i had started painting. I thought i could live with it, But as i started studying the blue sections to get ready to paint i just couldn't stop looking at it. It really started to bother me, so I made a Giant wooden moustache.. I tried styrene that i had laying around , but didn't get it to do what i wanted ( i'm not very good at that kind of stuff . unlike TG301 with the awesome builds ).. But i can hack and sand a piece of wood. I still have to attach it and add some bondo to fill in the edges and what not ... but i feel a lot better about the pack now .. also while i was doing this i went ahead and put the little "L" details on the pack( i circled it in red in the pictures a before and after).. still the pack is not 100% , but i feel i got little closer to glory .. and that's always a nice feeling

    -Justin

    I should be more updates this weekend or sooner hopefully.. I Just got my armor from RKD(very nice stuff) and i can't wait to start painting

    Looking good, I can see why you wanted to change that. You have some very impressive woodworking skills & thank you for the compliment. Have you weighed your pack to see how heavy it is? What are you planning on using for a harness?

    thank you... i'm planing on getting a Kcr7pr harness if available or something similar. My pack is fairly heavy for what it is..not sure of the exact weight(we don't own a set of scales as crazy as that sounds) the wood didn't add much to it at all(something i was kinda worried about when i first picked up the 2x4 to start carving .. but i've had some hiking/backpack experience.. enough anyway.. to know every ounce matters when something is attached to you for awhile I'm not sure if there is anything i can do to lighten it up.. It's one of the main reasons i want to upgrade one day .. get something lighter

    Looks great! The weight of a Man Of War Pack seems to be the biggest downside... Or any resin pack for that matter... I wonder who makes the lightest one.

    Hello all .. rounding 3rd and headed for home... I still have to do a lot of final touches.. more scratching.. topical paint damage .. dull the rocket down.. etc.. etc but i 'll finish all that this Tuesday at armor night with the local 501st.. I'm pretty happy with the end results .. The CRL's call for a medium blue.. but the AOSW pack looks like it is more green than blue.. I went for more of a Blue to kinda match the ROTJ pack than the AOSW.. but damage wise I used the AOSW as the main reference ( i hope that make sense )

    *First i liquid masked all the silver damage. along with the AOSW and SE reference pics i used this http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/m...emplate-31758/ as well .. i still wish that thread had kept going

    * then i used some grey 106 on the middle section of the Jet pack to bring in some of the grey ... i needed to go a little lighter with the grey but when i finish all the final weathering and such i think it will looks really good.
    * i liquid masked the grey that i wanted to show up and then went on the the Blue section

    * I used Blue 109 as the main blue. I then weathered the blue section with Grey 106 then Black 33 .. light misting trying to keep with the reference pics.
    This pic came out weird it doesn't show the right color really. not sure if it was because it wasn't dry, that my shop lighting doesn't seem to make for good pics, or what .. but this pic just didn't really come out and i can't go back and retake it

    Like I said above I still have a lot of work to do on the pack , but I'm pretty happy with the end results so far

    Final Updates to come next week

    I'm about to interrupt my Fett build with a Baby room project next week (my wife and I are expecting our first in May) if the project turn out well I'll post some pics .. its not Fett but it is Star Wars related(of course)

    Thank all you guys for the Kind words and support through out the build

    This. Looks. Awesome!! The colours work REALLY well man. Love that blue. I agree, it has more of a greenish hue than a royal. Thanks again for spearheading a sweet pack paint up. Congrats and all the best with your upcoming baby

    Thank you DP ..we are excited for the little on on the way(a boy btw) ... i wasn't sure about the blue after i sprayed it .. but as i started weathering (esp with the Black 33) it really started to come together.. the weathering deepened the blue a bit .. its always weird to me before i remove the masking .. seeing one solid color and no damage .. its not until i remove all the masking that i could really see that its working .. and and breathe a sigh of relief

    Awesome looking pack. The colors work really well. Like DP stated the blue is more blue green than royal but looks good. Reminds me of the stunt pack coloring but a little more vibrant.

    Congrats on the upcoming baby arrival & best of luck. What will be fun is teaching him about Star Wars. My 4 year old son sees Boushh & says mom & he knows I am Boba Fett (even though I am not done yet, he knows) just what I call great parenting. He has grown up watching me work on the costumes, cherished moments in life.

    That's because it's in Technicolor TG

    Thank you .. I can't wait for things like that.. I gave my 9yo nephew a copy of The Hobbit today and schooled him in a little Tolkien knowledge and got him excited about reading the book(esp when he found out the dragon is not just in the movie .. it's also in the book) .. and I thought... i can't wait to do this with my kid...

    Ok .. I'm calling it done for now.. I lightened the Rocket and lightened the grey 106, in the middle blue section, to look more like the reference pic.I added quite a few scratches. I still want to add some more Black 33 to weather the pack a little more( you can see where it needs it in the pics) and to widen the Black ring in the yellow section. I'm going to wait and do that while i'm painting my armor, so i don't have to make a mess now for just a few puffs of 33 when i'll be using it again to weather the armor. My pack is not 100% accurate so forgive me for that.

    Thank you to everyone again

    Accurate or not, this is a fine example of how a great paint job will hide inaccuracies. Simply awesome paint up.
