    May 15, 2008, 11:00 PM - Rocketpack Adjustment Knob #1

    Devloped by Michell Engineering, this stand is part of a sweep arm assembly for an old Hydraulic reference turntable. This part was found by myself and SingleSeat. Enjoy guys!

    Post your questions and I will be happy to answer everything I can.

    Cool stuff.
    Yes, eventually I will post all measurements.

    Based upon the list Brak's Buddy had and many many hours of research.

    So I'm guessing that the jet pack adjustment knob and the gauntlet darts came from the same sweep arm assembly?
    Either way it's a great find and a handy piece of info.
    Cheers

    How close do the measurements fit what we had previously guessed?

    Not sure Andy, maybe we can have a few people post measurements and the makers.

    I think I've come the closest to having one of these in hand. When I was at Steve Sansweet's house last January, the Albino Boba Fett Pre-Production Blaster was in my arms, and the tip of the blaster was the jet pack stabiliser.

    Hey GCN, check your last pic . . . that appears to be a knee dart/toe spike up on the side of the gun too!

    Yes it is.
    That gun also has a Graflex flash tube and the patterson stir stick handle.

    Yep, I had spotted the knee dart when I first got a hold of it. I posted these pictures before, and I remember sending them in their full 7 megapixel goodness to Spidey.

    No, the supertrooper gun is a UZI made by the Model Gun Corporation.
