    Yes, I have. It didn't look bad and it was cheap. It was a lot of work however. I have since purchased a fiberglass jet pack that I am much happier with once I had the $ to do so.

    I did a jet pack using LisaFetts tutorial.
    For the money you really can't beat it.
    I wore it to several 501st events and got
    nothing but good comments. However, I have
    since sold it and moved on to the more pricy
    vac-formed/resin jet packs. If you have the
    money, I would go with the latter. Much
    less work and a little more sturdy.

    If anyones built Lisa Fetts jet pack and has the pattern - let me know.
    I have the materials and the written tutorial - but need the pattern.
    I contacted the Fetts (lisa) and they just moved and dont have any on hand.
    Let me know,
    Sean

    Yup, it's totally fine by me to trace a pattern and pass it along after you're through.

    I recommend using sintra to build most of the pack now, though. I'd rather use poster board and styrofoam, since I need something that weighs 3 pounds , but if you don't mind doing the harness thing, sintra, with very minimal amounts of bondo, will be faster. Keep the amount of bondo to a minimum, though, because bondo cracks and you can easily end up with a 30 pound jet pack if you slather that stuff on. After we move and get set up again, I'll make a sintra one and re-do the tutorial for it.

    Yeah, I have been doing a pretty thorough search of the forums looking for the templates, no luck though. Do you think you could scale them down, and we can either work from the scaled drawings, or inlarge them and print them out? Thanks

    Re: Lisa Fetts Jetpack tutorial

    what i'll probably do is buy some of the craft paper at the paper works outlet, and trace the patterns out on them, and just send them to you guys. you will have to cut them out, but, that takes all of 20 min. i'll also send you a parts list, and a instruction set. PM me with your addresses, and i'll send you some templates.

    Re: Lisa Fetts Jetpack tutorial

    hey, if you guys would like a 85% done JP (which is made by me from the templates) i can sell them. i'll only charge $50 for a JP. the reason for the low price is cause, there not quite finished. i have 3 JP that need just a little bit of work on them. i have 1 classic version, 1 arena version, and 1 that could go both ways. all you need to do is buy some paint, and follow the last bit of instructions....which is not that much work. let me know if anyone is interested.

    Our website is down at the moment. You can email me for the tutorial, but soon it will be posted on our new site. I have some template copies somewhere, but they are buried since our last move. I'm starting law school at night anyway and I haven't got time anymore to do most of the costuming stuff. You can make a jet pack from the tutorial without templates, but it's harder. The patterns are too big to scan, but maybe there's some way to draw them on some smaller pieces of paper or something.

    *L* I know, it's crazy to think that anyone would ever want to spend time on something other than costuming.

    I'm supposed to be wrapping up several different projects before I start school. At this rate, I'm hoping to wrap up one! Azeem is working on getting the new site together again.
