Well this is my first post in this forum and I am looking for suggestions. I have the hopes of making 2 jetpacks and two sets of armor. I have been looking through the forums on here for ideas and I just have to say that you guys are the most talented and imaginative people that I have ever met. with that being said, your opinions and suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
I will attempt to make two jetpacks, 1 Boba (general) for my son and 1 Jango (general) for myself. I printed the templates from WoF. I will use the mid sized one for my son and the large size one for myself. I am using foam poster board from walmart, foam glue, 3" pvc, 2" pvc, a couple of 1 1/2" cardboard tubes (in case pvc doesnt fit right). I will be making a trip to Michaels (craft store) tomorrow for other ideas for fine tuning. I know that I will have to use somekind of putty for the seams. Whats the best kind? Ive seen mostly red bondo being used? Im not sure of what I will use for the rocket on bobas pack but I have ideas for Jangos.
Now for the armor, I will be using the trashcan method, so its straight forward (I think). Just have to get the sizes right. Will be using more WoF templates for that.
Already have the helmets, we have Rubies collectors 1 piece helmets, wont modify now, just have to concentrate on the other stuff for now.
I dont want you to get bored with me, so I'll end it there. Pic is of the materials that I have now (For one jetpack). I know that I am still a long way off, but heres a start. Thank you very much in advance for your comments, advice, criticism, etc. It is all very welcome and appreciated.
