Andy, known here as TK231, has commissioned me to paint his MOW Jetpack, ESB style. So i thought id put up a build thread so you can see how i do it. Of course everyone has different techniques, this is just my method. It is rattlecans and acrylics for the most part. He is sending over all the metalupgraqdes, so i did not add the resin ones the MOW pack comes with.
So here we go...
Here is the Man of War Studios 2011 Fett jetpack. As usual, a beautiful piece. and well made kit.
First to prep, i sand off all the seamlines. MOW makes the seamlines very minimal and in good places to easily be removed.
After everything is sanded i add the tank caps. The newer packs have these seperate, my old MOW pack had them cast onto the pack. My guess is its easier to demold the pack without these pieces.
We can see the bottoms need to be smoothed out a bit before we attch them to the pack
So i sand em on sandpaper on a flat surface, moving in a circular motion, like so..
then we have this:
Much better, i do the other one as well, and attch them to the pack. I also attached the "rocket ring"
