    Just showin off my Jetpack =)

    Just wanted to show off my jetpack, ESB style. I got the last aluminum pieces i wanted for this just about a week ago from Darkside.
    Here are the specs...

    Jetpack-2009 MOW, Paint by Myself
    Aluminum rocket collar-Serenity
    Stabilizer-Mojo-Fett
    Beacon-BFUK (i think)
    Beacon Light-TK4619
    File near stabilizer-Kurtyboy
    Aluminum thruster pieces-Darkside
    Decal-lucksy13

    The top half of the rocket is attached to the bottom half with earth magnets, the rocket is attached via a butterfly nut on the inside to make it easily removable.

    The thrusters are also attached via earth magnets for easy removal for packing up the suit. All the rocket parts and the thrusters fit within the pack for storeage and transport. This is a great pack, id recommend it to anyone! His newr pack is even nicer if you can believe that! lol. Im tempted to grab it, mbut theres really nothing worng with this version so for now, im opting out of upgrading lol.

    Hope you all enjoy!

    Thanks Guys! I've had the pack since 2009, but it took me a while to get all the metal parts i wanted on it. I also need to put on the more accurate hooks i now i have.

    Question...does the ESB pack have the greeblies on the bottom like the ROTJ? I didnt think it did, but had come across a pic of someones pack with them. Last i recall it was never confirmed that it did. just curious to know if i need to buy more greeblies lol

    awsome pack you did a great job putting it togeather, wish i had that beacon. i do have a question, the white dot. what is that exactly, ive seen it on few different pic and screen shots. what does it mean and what is it. is it paint? or an object.

    I need to do it to mine.

    Thanks man! Its a dot, i have no clue what its supposed to be for lol...but its in this reference shot, so i added it. I just painted it on, as thats what it looked like to me.

    I actually just added it before i took these pics lol.

    Mate, that look sick! I am planning on buying myself a MoW jetpack. Thanks for the list of where you got your greeblies from btw! Been wondering about that aluminium collar for a while. Also if it's possible, make your beacon light brighter like in that reference photo you posted there ^.

    Thanks guys!

    Jaybox...i actually plan to do that. The light i have in there now is a LED, the screen used pack used a standard light. i actually put myself on Dark-sides list for a beacon with the light, as his is more accurate than the one i have, and it comes with the correct light. So soon enough that will be fixed

    Mighty fine work, that is. I was pretty set on doing up the RotJ jetpack, but now I'm having second thoughts!
