    Rocketpack Adjustment Knob

    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.

    Re: Rocketpack Adjustment Knob

    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.

    Re: Rocketpack Adjustment Knob

    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.
