    Vacced JP - Does NE one do it or have one?

    Does NE one vac jet packs?

    Does NE one here have one that is vacced?

    Pros and cons of a vacced JP?

    Just looking at ideas before I start scratch building one...I just can't come off $300 for a FG type right now.

    It'll cost that for a vac'd one as well.

    I have a friend who makes beautiful VAC'd jet packs, they look SWEEEEET. Jango Arena, Jango Kamino or even BOBA version, they all are so light...its unbelievable..if someone could host a few pics for me, I'd show you how nice they come out..no resin pieces, even the rocket and thrusters are vac'd, and I never thought that could be done. I could pick up the entire jet pack with two fingers, and it even has a harness built into the back...PM me for a price on a kit or one professionally painted and/or weathered...

    He makes REALLY nice hinged Vac'd gauntlets too...superb.

    I have a vacced JP.



    It is a bit small for me, but fairly light. Wouldn't be so bad, but the rocket and the nozzles are solid resin.

    Sent you a PM.

    I almost have my thrusters completed...but getting the rest of the pack would be sweet.

    Also, send me the pics and I'll get them up for you.

    I just replyed to all who asked me about the person who makes Vacuformed Fett Jet Packs..they are SWEEET...so if anyone else wants to know, just shoot me a PM...He makes them and I can get them painted and weathered, very nicely, I might add.

    Hey Chrima... that jet pack looks damn familiar! Wish I could paint like that though...

    Hey Phantom... get your butt in gear and do some trooping. As CCG XO I command it!

    Yeah, they look nice, but the price kills me. I'm not knocking anyone's work whatsoever, but the prices I got from a few pwople on vacced styrene just seems too high. I went ahead and began construction of one using PVC pipe, sintra, styrene, aluminum cans, and styrene foam.

    It is turning out quite nicely. for a fraction of the cost. It is a turning out a little heavier than I would have liked, but all in all, I think it is excellent for never having built such a large prop before .

    Thanks for everyone's input.
