    My Scratch-built jango jp (cardboard and papermache)

    well, i decided to do something on the holidays (nothing else to do), and started on a jet pack. it's made of cardboard, cus i plan to coat it with paper mache. right know, i already have the mainbody and tanks done. i just need the rocket and the tank caps, and i can then coat it with paper mache. the rocket, i plan to make seperately (and when i say separetly, i mean not cardboard/papermache).

    well, things have been a drag, so i haven't had much done today. all i did was attach the top tank caps on to the tanks. i also need to thicken the top part (sorry, don't know what it is called), it's to thin. more to come soon!

    Looks great, I love scratchbuilts, and they always weigh like 2 lbs. Great work on the fuel tank tops.

    I would also like to take a stab at making a jet pack out of cardboard...
    can you give me some of the dimensions you are using?
    I am not sure how big it should be...

    i don't really have that much model making skills, and that's why i'm doing a simple one like this. if i have the money, i'd buy a fiberglass one, but i don't, and here i am. of course, i got the idea thanks to wasp, who made his own jet pack out of papermache. i think it's on the jango forums. use the search function, type in Papermache Jet Pack, and you should get it.

    well, i just maximized it so the grids on WoF's templates are will be 1 inch. they are, after all, 1 inch.

    Yes, i am using wizardofflight's templates. His templates are amazing!

    I like the whole home-made thing...

    Makes one feel really good once its completed (if it turns out well)...

    But that is just my 2 cents...

    it comes from the phrase "a penny for your thoughts". implying that instead of someone having to pay you to speak your mind, you'll give them twice as much for free.
