    i saw the templates for the wol jet pack, and i just dont understand alot of it. does anyone have a piece by piece template set? some of the template pieces just dont make sense to me. im sure that they are amazing being that i've seen the results, but this seems too complicated for a first timer. any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance.

    Hi buddy. What are you having trouble with and what material are you working with?

    A simple bit of advice would be to look at some reference photos and sort out which patterns you can identify and what you can't.

    The pack is mage from a Back section, a base and a top 'shelt' where the missile sits. Then there is a central cylinder and two fuel tanks with some flat bits around them. It is quite simple.

    Does that help, have you tried looking at the build threads?

    i was going to use .40 sintra. the problem i'm having is that all the ribbed parts on the front look like its one piece on the temps. i cant seem to figure out how they separate to make the two solid parts.

    Ok, not sure exactly which temps you have, you could maybe do with the 16.5" ones, as I understand these are the most accurate.

    I know which part you are describing. Between the center cylinder and the fuel tank you should have a template which is simply a flat piece onto which go two raised sections, this is mirrored on the opposite side. Are you sure you can't see them? One is about 10mm high and the other about 25mm high. They are as separate items with the WoF templates, are all the pages there?

    Where did you download them from, have you a link?

    I simply used white glue ( carpenters glue will work as well ) as the entire pack was made from hardboard and cardboard. Just make sure that you seal the entire pack prior to priming and painting.

    did you scratch build the rocket and thrusters as well?

    Yep... I sure did.

    Every single part of that jet pack was scratch built using WoF templates. I'm still waiting on my resin stabilizer and beacon.
