    First time jetpack painter

    Hi guys, just thought I would post up a photo of my first time at painting a jet pack.

    I have not yet started the weathering, and have only painted the silver and clear coats to the thrusters and missile.

    I followed Slave 1 pilots tutorial best I could, any advice on the weathering is welcome, as are any other comments.

    Thanks guy's, Rob.

    I finished up the main body of the pack, the photo does not pick up all the weathering, but gives a better idea.




    Pleased with the pack, which is my own scratch build.

    Heres one with the becon etc fitted, you can't see to good, but the light is on too! I may move the bulb up higher in the beacon, but it looks pretty nice just letting out the light, higher and you can sort of see the bulb.



    Jon, the blue is a humbrol enamel, number 109.
