    JB Project/ Jetpack Paintjob by slave1pilot

    I finally got the jet pack today.
    Mrs.slave1pilot brought it home from work tonight.
    It was already primered,so I took off the beacon & stabilizer
    & painted the first 2 coats of Silver
    I'm not gonna post many pics of it yet.
    It's just a silver jet pack right now.

    Is it me or has the JP been sprayed over the decal? or has the JP have a raised part of the mould to allow for accurate positioning of the decal or paint?

    good eye MoJo.....

    MOW just put that on for this one pack, since it is a very "special" pack.
    and it's molded into the pack and raised....it's a nice little touch really.

    Well now that it's clear, I hope you put some cones or ropes around it so you can find it again.

    Sorry guys,
    no painting tonight
    I can't find the Jet Pack.




    Actually, the weather is terrible & I'm a little ill as well.
    I'm also trying to get some more reference pics
    (really need a bottom pic)

    Great start!!!! Just a friendly suggestion if I may...you might wanna make your stripes a little wider on those thrusters. Should be easy for you to do at this stage before you get going on the weathering. It always looked to me like they go almost to the lip of the thruster.
