    Four Day Weekend and what do I do?

    I paint duh! Gotta weather that beacon but otherwise she is done...with a dental file to boot came out better than I thought added a few things I havent seen people do see if you guys catch what Im talking about...this is a BFUK V2 pack BTW, all the scuffs and scratches are scuffs and scratches not topically applied...

    Very nice look pack F4R. My guess for what you added is the yellow on top of the beacon light.

    No sir...the beacon should be brass that beacons temporary till I can get a metal one...if you look close at the pics the light shines through a brass top of the beacon...like I said it needs weathering I also need to add that white dot on the right side...the addition is there its specific to ESB and PrePro actually the AOSW pack doesnt have this detail...

    Are the two holes drilled out under the cone only on BFUK's pack? My MOW doesn't have this detail... are there two between each fin? Think I should drill out my MOW? What size drill bit would you say? Thanks F4R!

    Re: Four Day Weekend and what do I do?

    They are not in fact drilled out on either pack as I think they used the ROTJ pack to base their model off of...ESB and PrePro have that detail i just grabbed one that looked right and measured according to the screen and what not...yeh theyre between all three...6 total theyre not evenly spaced persay theyre even but not...hard to explain

    Thanks for the info! I haven't touched the rocket part of my pack yet so I still have time toget this detail on. (I'm in the last phase of completing my clone so I haven't had too much time for Boba) I'll take a look at some reference photos when I'm ready.

    ... and good luck with going to Korea!

    Excellent paint job on that ESB JetPack.

    There's one little thing you missed on the JetPack

    Good eyes Rafal but he said that he still had to add that detail on the pack in a post after the initial one .

    Well that's what I get for leaving the window open for awhile before posting. Now I look like a fool.

    Re: Four Day Weekend and what do I do?

    Well, this happens when not reading or re-reading everything on a thread... I saw your image with the almost finished JP and then I looked at the ref pics and for the first time I noticed that white dot. Just ignore my early post.
