    maybe I'll pass on making my own.. 350 is a reasonable price.

    Here's an update:

    The molds for the new lanyard will be completed in 2 days. This means purchased kits will begin being mailed out at the end of the week (September 8th). Thank you for your patience guys.

    Hey Chris, I know I asked this before but how long will you be offering these for? Need to sell a few things to pick this baby up.

    Thanks for your interest guys...

    I plan to have this kit around for a while..no worries !

    Update:

    Lanyard mold is completed. I'll be finishing up purchased orders over the next few days. I may be offering the lanyard as a single prop. I know there were many of you interested in the lanyard alone so keep posted.

    I would be interested in this, however funding at present time is rather stretched... how long will these be going for, and what lanyard would you reccommend for a 5'6"ish stocky guy? Assuming that you are the person doing the shorter one as well...

    Yeah I'd definitely be interested in the rocket lanyard and some thrusters.
    That looks awesome.
    I wish I had the dough for the whole thing.

    Hey Guys,

    I'm posting the thruster assembly. I've had some problems keeping it organized through email. This assembly has worked very well for me in the past.

    Photo 1. The finished thruster assembly.
    Photo 2. Supplies: Small length of 3/4" pvc pipe. Four 3/4" pvc elbows. Adhesive of your choice (Not shown).
    Photo 3. Measurements: Cut one section of 3/4" pvc pipe to 9 3/4" length. Cut two sections of 3/4" pvc pipe to 2" lengths.
    Photo 4. Secure each 2" section to your elbows with adhesive.
    Photo 5. Make final assembly inside fuselage with adhesive.
    Photo 6. Attach thrusters to pvc assembly with adhesive (Use your template which came with your kit to cut hole inserts).
    Photo 7. Check for allignment and allow adhesive to dry.

    Note: PVC pipe is measured by inside dimensions. Use 3/4" (inside) PVC and appropriate elbows

    Hi Christian,

    do you sell all your stuff as a kit or is it possible to get all this fully built and painted ? I'm new on the DEN and have to look what parts for my Boba are interessting for me so i just wanna check this out. Sadly i dont have the skills to built or paint stuff myself.
    Thanks
  19. Sep 11, 2007, 2:07 PM - Re: Man of War Studios Jetpack Kit #19

    Thanks guys..Thanks Bunicula !

    Really appreciate it !

    Collector....Thanks for your interest..Man I just don't have the time to paint these babies anymore. My workload is pretty fierce Buddy

    There are a handfull of members on TDH who do some beautifull paint schemes..I'm sure you could hire the services of one of these telented guys.

    I could easily mail one of these kits over to them...

    Let me know if I can help,

    Christian
