    Show Off - My first even SE Jetpack primary paint job

    Hello Everyone!

    Well, here's my first paint job. I still need to weather it. It's a Bobamaker Jetpack that I painted entirely with an airbrush. I used a detail brush to correct the over spray. I'm in the process of finishing the thrusters and rocket.

    Whatcha guys think?

    Thanks!

    Hi Darth and others,

    Heres' the final product! As this is the first time I have ever done an ESB Jetpack, I am curious to get some opinions. As far as the greeblies on the back of the Jetpack are concerned, is there a good reference photo for placement out there?

    Thanks!

    Very Nice! Where did you get the aluminum parts? Does the beacon have a white light in it?

    Thanks everyone!

    Vultan,

    The aluminum parts are from Bobamaker, who is awesome to work with! The light is an LED bulb. I have a couple that fit the beacon. (White, amber, and an RGB that's pretty sweet.) Here's a link to a youtube vid I shot of the working beacon. I have a beacon I bought from from Darkside that I would be willing to part with if you're interested. You would need to put a bulb assembly in it that you can get from Radio Shack. The beacon in the pics and vid are of that beacon. Shoot me a PM if you want it.

    Cheers,
