    Aug 9, 2006, 3:50 PM - Jetpack Size? #1

    I'm a new member and was wondering how big a jet pack should be for someone about 6.1 and 180 pounds?
    I understand that there is no "right"size but was wondering how big it should be to get the same proportion as the movie.
    Dose anyone know how tall Boba was in ROTJ or how much he weighed.
    On a side note i do have the amazing blueprints from wizzard of flight but when I made a mock up out of paper it seemed to small for me.
    Any (more) help or measurements for a jet pack would be very helpful thank you.

    Jeremy Bulloch was 1.83m (6'1"). Not sure on the weight.

    I'm 1.75m tall (5'9"), my jet pack is a scratch build though, I can't help you there.

    I am about 6' 2"; 220 lbs. My jet pack measures a vertical distance of 30" from the tip of the rocket to the base of the thrusters. This is OK, but for my height it may be about an inch less than what I'd like it to be.

    I can tell you tomorrow I just got the new MLC2 pack in and I will measure it when I get home in the morning and post it up tomorrow night.

    I will say I am 6'1 200ish lbs and the MLC pack looks good on me.

    not to complain but dose anyone have pics w/ measurements or dose anyone know how to print the WOF patterns with a 1 inch grid. I'm having a hard time getting the size right. Also for the most part are people making the rockets from sheet plastic?

    there should be a new download of WOF's templates. The new ones are all correctly sized for 8 1/2 by 11 paper sheets. so there is no more fuss with printing them.
