    Aug 23, 2006, 5:14 AM - My cardboard and papermache jetpack #1

    Well I didn't have any money for this so I decided to scratch buold it from card etc. I found some templates printed them off stook them on card and used some bottles etc for the tubes.
    Its not brilliant but I'm happy with it for now I don't intend on wearing the jet pack its used for my lifesize statue.
    I may build one from plastic eventually.




    Its quite over weathered mainly to try and hide the creases from the paper etc. I went with the ESB colours as my gauntlets are esb gauntlets and it was easier to paint.
    Like I said its not brilliant but it didnt cost me anything so I'm happy with it.
    Its 26inches tall and 16 inches wide.




    Also heres a pic of the complete peice. I need some new gloves and boots eventually.

    I have a room or two something like your last photo. I have so many boxes full of SW action figures, ships, and any other SW collectible that you could imagine. Before long we'll need a larger home...
