    Sep 18, 2002, 12:41 AM - Merged: Merged: Jetpack patterns working well #1

    A little update - The jet pack patterns are working well. The Betas are building their packs, and the couple I've seen are turning out great.

    My email: stubbzilla@yahoo.com

    I ALSO have complete patterns for all the rest of the armor, but I have not written any tutorials, and the gauntlets are much more complex than the jet pack in terms of the number of pieces needed. Those will be for some time in the future, but I won't send them out until I'm confident they're useable.

    edit: People who already have patterns can email me if they need an updated version of the tutorial, with the Stubby modifications included now. The patterns are the same, it's just an email of the newer tutorial version that would be useful for you. Thanks to malcfett for his excellent Beta-ing.

    Okay, I've got all my Betas lined up. After I get feedback about the patterns/instructions (really, I already know the patterns work since I use them), I'll make any necessary changes.

    Ask Lisa Fett. She's the master of the home-made jet pack.

    I can't email them. They are too big to scan in, and they cost $$ to get them printed out. After these last few are gone, I probably won't bother with them any more. You can email me at stubbzilla@yahoo.com.

    Good news!

    Are you gonna post them/a link to them, or is it a PM/E-mail job?

    If necessary I'll crawl from my house to yours over broken glass for 'em (as long as you live close, anyway).

    Let us know.

    Hey Lisa, remember to have a copy available, cause I know that a lot of people will want to have one as well, probably me too. If you want to save an original and give it to someone with trust in the group or forum, that would be great. That way you won't have to deal with it anymore.

    I am almost finished my jet pack, i will have pics up soon.
    I will send you templates to trace onto sintra if you like, i think my jet pack is a little large, or it might be to scale. I used 1/4"plastic,sintra,bondo,wood and PVC tubing.
    It weighs between 9-10 lbs.

    For the record, I wouldn't care if someone cut out my templates, used them, then mailed them on to someone else.

    I DO care if someone copies them and sells multiple copies, or heaven forbid, sell the FREE tutorial. (As some guy did on ebay recently.)

    Lookin' real sweet UKScout.

    Only thing I see that needs to be changed if you're going for accuracy is that the backplate is actually curved. Other than that, I like it a LOT!

    Neil,

    It would appear to be like a lot of this outfit. If it looks right and is in proportion to the wearer, then it's OK.

    I have made a mock up (mockery?) of a JP body in cardboard and polystyrene. I used the visual dictionary and scaled up from there.

    There's another thread discussing the measurements. Hang on...

    http://tdh.prop-planet.com/viewtopic...ic=652&forum=6

    There you go. May help a bit, but there's a wide range of opinion.

    Knock yourself out. And let us know when your done.

    Si

    hi all

    My templates are nearly done just need now to test them

    heres a screen grab of what ive done on cad, its taking a while to get the shape right.



    These will be availbe for members only once ive ironed out any areas need tweaking.

    All I have to do is break it down into a parts

    Also can someone use these to help me tweak these templates as i havent got the time at the mo to make a jet pack due to my wedding coming up.

    All need is someone to start making a jet pack from these and give me some feedback to alter and amend these plans so i can get these pefect for other members.

    cheers
