    It looks pretty good! I love the scratch build jetpack threads (well everything scratch built) and my advise is to always back up your build with images from the Gallery (I see only the WOF templates on the wall) to be sure that your build is in the right track. Here is the ROTJ jetpack as reference:

    It seems that the side tanks on your build are a bit low and the tanks housing is wider (it covers the yellow area) while the rocket tip should have straight lines (I know that the shape you did is how WOF did in the templates):

    Keep up the great work!

    Hey Raf Fett,

    Thanks for the feedback! Yeah I know the fuel tanks are a bit low, once I had set everything up I just didnt have the will power to change it..

    Next time I do this I will have a much better idea on how to approach it, I must say this was more fun than the helmet !!!! Will post another pic soon!

    Re: My first jetpack

    Hello I am building my first jetpack and, granted some mistakes so far have made me change it just a hair so I am not following my templates (Wof) strictly speaking. The whole thing is a bit shorter than it should be, the fuel pods are higher than the top base portion.
    My question for you guys is this: I have the template for the missile, but I am having trouble building it. Any suggestions? I just don't get how the cutouts from the template really works to create the missile.
