    Re: Official Show Off Your JetPack (scratchbuilt too!)

    I'm buillding mine out of posterboard and hot glue.
    any ideas on how to make it more stiff? its really flexible right now.
    i haven't covered the entire thing up because i know someone in the industrial design department at the Rochester Institute of Technology and he says that i should just apply some fiberglass resin to the underside of the paper (inside the jet pack) to eliminate the need for sanding on the outside. i'm not sure what to do.
    has anyone had this "flexibility" problem as i have?

    Still working on my Jango Jet Pack, If there was a procrastinating Bounty Hunter, that would be me. Still testing a few spinners for the top. I'm forcing myself to work on this more.

    this is my Bobamaker ESB version! I drilled out the resin beacon and used a superbright LED.

    first i thought i used the wrong orange color, but after the weathering, it turned out to be not-so-bad lookin.

    as for the weathering, i used the silver metalic paint-pen for car

    for the black part, i used the permanent-marker

    Is that Airbrushed or Spraycan. becasue with your talent i'm shocked you didn't want to paint you own armor, but i thank you for letting me. i just ordered the paints by the way.

    Here are mine. They have a long way to go still, but they'll do for C4. After that I'll do some re-painting and re-working of some pieces.

    Steve,

    I used spraycan, that's why i can't paint some corner with the black weathering.
    before this, i was thinking of getting a fully-painted-jet pack, but it's too expensive, so i gave my 1st try on painting it myself.

    if only i can find yellow paint-pen [for the yellow weathering], i might paint my own armor, but after seeing ur armor, okay i wanna try ur service. u never see how horrible my knee armor is [partly due to lack of yellow-paint pen]

    Re: Official Show Off Your JetPack (scratchbuilt too!)

    I'd like to introduce myself, I'm Jesse V. from Murrieta California. I've been a SW fan since I was 12 yrs old in 1977. I've been a Dented Helmet member since April. I am a total newbie to Boba Fett costume making/building.
    I want to thank WOF for "The Plans" with out then the build would not have happened. Thank you all who have built before me and have shared your info by posting it here on TDH. When it comes to scratch building there are no rules to material or technique, as you can see in my photos. Some items are prefabricated, the beacon by PSBeretta, the missile by my good neighbor Allen C. with his wood lathe in his garage.
    Enough babel, here are some progress pics and the end result.

    Re: <B>Merged:</B> Re: show us your scratchbuilt jetpacks!!!!!

    This is the post thats causing the pop ups. can someone fix it? I removed the images so it wouldnt happen even more

    The images dont work so someone at least remove them ILl pm him.

    Here's mine in its current state:


    I used a piece of 4" PVC for the main tube screwed to a piece of sintra. 3 soda cans make up each tank on the sides. The outer shell was made from 2 "For Sale" signs and some thinner styrene I bought at the hobby shop. I used styrene house-siding foam to build up areas and covered it with styrene sheets. This foam was also ribbed inside to make the flare in the back. Lot's of bondo and sanding have gotten me this far...

    Rocket Detail

    The grapples are aluminum, but everything else is plastic or PVC. I used PVC reducers to join the rocket to the pack. The end of the rocket is a 3"to 1" reducer and the top of the pack is a 3" to 2" reducer. That way the rocket is a tension fit and so it is removable. Tip is the old "resin pull of a drinking fountain paper cup".


    My beacon is a mag light and hair spray cap. It slips down in a hole in the pack, and all I have to do is turn it to make the light come on. The tops of the soda cans were some stick-on, push-on lights I got at Dollar tree cut to fit. Piano keys are hand cut (ouch my thumb!) pieces of sintra.


    Powerade caps for the bottom of the soda cans.

    Comments and questions welcome.
