I have been using a foam core, paint lid, tin can, pvc, renuzit jet pack for the last 6 years and shes beginning to have some serious issues. I have a Big Springfield, Cardinals Baseball game this Sunday Afternoon. What method would you suggest for making a complete jet pack that is much better than my foam core, but I can build in 2 days and paint by Sunday. It doesn't have to have all the lights and whistles by Sunday as I will be all around and it will be hot so we will have to go in shifts of off and on. But need it to look good.
I have been thinking of getting a large piece of styrofoam and cut it with a hot knife to the Shape and coat it in epoxy and prime it then paint it. I can reuse my missile and the jet nozzles and some of the pieces like the caps and greeblie parts.
I just want light and quick. I am ESB Fett not the ROTJ So the paint job is easier in my opinion.
Thanks for suggestions.
