    Scratch built 3/4 Scale Jetpack

    So I figured its about time I stopped building and post up a few pics of what Ive been working on. Its a WOF based 3/4 scaled jetpack. Started building it for my wife, but it seems like a few people may be interested in one of their own so might be getting it cast to be available for other females and Kids alike. Tell me what u think its maybe 60% done....Im VERY picky so it may look far along but I want to get it pretty close to the Boba pack, even though its scaled down.

    It all started with 8 big for sale signs

















    Here is what its looking like right now....its getting there....

    Its coming along....have hit a few bumps in the road...but Im having fun with it...I love 3d Design, more than I like painting at least. Had a bit of filler not cure on me just now on the missile center section :/

    Nice! This gives me an idea for one of the "bumps" I've been stumbling over. I can't wait to see better rocket assembly pics!

    That's actually very cool, Dom. Can't wait to see how this progresses and how it helps put more female Mando's out there
