    FOUR slot beacons

    Well people as I promised in my flame thrower thread, Here is the pics of the beacon I made.
    It is 2 1/2 inches top to bottom.

    I want EVERYONES feedback on the size of this. If it needs to be bigger, I need to know.

    I don't know the price yet.

    I need to know how big to make them first. ALL of you need to get in on the size debate.

    As for how its lit up.....I held a mini mag to the bottom of it to show that it is hollow. The bottom will be threaded and a hollow nut will be used to secure it to the jet pack. If you want to run wires and an led up through it, it can be done easily.

    Again..........Size matters here .

    -Tim-

    Oooh man! That looks really good.

    Could we see a pic of the beacon next to something for size reference?

    Re: FOUR slot beacons

    Could you take a dimension for the ID compared to the size of the min mag?

    That looks awesome!! Well, I can't give any feedback on size, because you and everyone else will know more about that. But I do think it looks right on!

    Re: FOUR slot beacons

    Wizardofflight and I have spoke and the beacon is made to fit a 15 inch scale Jet Pack.
    The MLC V.1 I have is 16 1/2 inches. Thats why I am asking everyone for feed back.

    Wizard, pipe in anytime.

    Re: FOUR slot beacons

    That came out looking GREAT! Beautiful job.

    I can work up a size comparison drawing showing what the difference would be for the beacon between a 16.5" JP and a 15" JP, if that will help?

    Man that looks good!

    Re: FOUR slot beacons

    psberetta here are the comparisons. You can ignore my last e-mail I just saw your post.

    Here is a comparison shot of the two different sized beacons, one for the 16.5” and for the 15” wide jet packs.
    Depending which pack you have will dictate which beacon should be produce. So the question is;

    What size is everyone’s JP?



    For reference here is a shot showing a comparison between the drawings and the studio jet pack,
    to give an idea of the proper scale.
