    :jet pack

    I have seen posts by a few who mentioned it,
    I'm curious how many are scratchbuilding their own Jet Pack?

    Are you guys going for 100% accurate or something that looks good and fits well?

    (A screen-accurate scaled Jet Pack may be too small for most people since Mr. Bulloch wasn't a very big or tall guy)

    I'm going to make my own.. luckily I'm only 6 ft ( or according to the Ripleys museum 6ft 2 " ) so the movie sized one should be alright. I'll be trying to make it as accurate looking as possible but the colours might be hit and miss

    Isn't Mr. Bulloch about 5'11" or shorter ?

    Years ago when I met him he was shorter than me.

    The boots and helmet add a few inches.

    Jeremy was 6' at the time of filming. He may have shrunk a little bit since.

    I'm on my 3rd pack and currently I am doing insane mods to a MB2 kit. I haven't touched it in a a couple of months but recently thawd it out of hibernation. The mods are to make it a little bigger all around and create sharper edges on the main body so it's just a little more accurate. I'll get it finished on of these days and post some pics!

    I scratchbuilt mine. It's in the showoff thread near the bottom. I wasn't going to crazy screen accurate when doing it, but I think it turned out alright!
