    Jul 29, 2005, 8:09 PM - scratch JP opinion #1

    Hello!!, Im building a JP from scratch but at this point, I dont notice that the central part was out of scale...........I was happy with how it was, but now I dont know...........looking all the pics I use for reference, in many, it look closer...........but in other it look fatallllllllllllllll!!!!!
    Im considering cut the bad part and replace it.......but this could destroy all the good work.............what do you think? continue with this, or try to resolve ?..................

    I think it looks fine. If cutting it out and replacing it isn't too much trouble for you and you are going for total screen accuracy then go ahead otherwis I say leave it. I am building one also but mine is kind of a custom made pack.. not really screen accurate but screen similar is what I would call it. Just until I have the dough to get a pack from rex.

    The tube size looks fine to me. its just setting a little to far out, the rocket will be way out there. OF course look at the prepro 3 suit, That jet pack is huge.

    YOU KNOW WHAT I USE TO FILL BIG GAPS? POLIESTIRENE......THE HARD ONE..............I JUST CUT A PIECE SMALLER THAN THE HOLE, AND GLUED IT WITH SUPER GLUE....AND I SCULP ON IT.......SO I USE LESS PUTTY............IF YOU SEE IN MY JP, ALL THE PIECES ARE MADE IN POLIESTERENE AS BASE, AND THEN I SCULP A FINE SKIN OF PUTTI ON IT...................
