    I haven't seen this thread in a while... WOW! That's an amazing looking jetpack you have there. Its nice and crisp... I like your fuel tank caps. They are well defined. (Mine didn't turn out so well )

    Wow, this is the third scratchbuild jetpack I've seen on here, and this has given me inspiration to give it a go and build one myself. TDH is awesome! Great job on your pack dude, from one Matt to another!

    Just to echo everyone else, this is incredible. You have inspired many of us, and myself, to try and do the same thing. Keep up the good work, hope to see how the rest of it turns out!

    Holy.......

    You should make a mold and fabricate some copies. You'd definitely be able to make some people very happy, same with your wallet.

    Hi,

    at first amazing work, inspired by Jango72 jetpack ive started also my jetpack. But since some Month it dont get forward. The fuel canister dont work. What for diameter is right? And did you used a tube or did you made ist on your own. The Piano Keys are an great idea. The key ive made are not really great. Because they are a litle too thick. Here some pics of my jetpack. Im thinking of do a complete new Jetpack.

    ideas are welcome.

    Regards

    Wow. Thank you everyone for all the compliments! It's been a while since I've worked on this or checked this thread. I bought a house and had a baby so working on Fett stuff took a back seat for a while. I've started to do a little more painting and hope to get this thing reasonably finished in the near future.





    The rocket is actually a lot more weathered. The photos didn't pick it up so well...

    Okay I finally got working on the thrusters. These seem to be tricky but I think I'm off to a pretty good start.

    These inset pieces are made from 7/8" od nylon washers. I shaped them by hand using dremel bits and a file. The inside curve was made with a rounded grinding bit.
    Before and after!




    The balls are plastic Christmas ornaments and the cones are air fresheners. The ornaments were covered in glitter and I made a hell of a mess sanding it all off. The air fresheners are actually a really good size once you cut a little off the top and bottom.
    I'm pretty much making this up as I go along so wish me luck!

    I got a little more painting and weathering done. This is all done with rattlecans and by hand. It's funny, you'd think something like a white dot would be easy right? Took quite a few tries...The white symbol on the other hand wasn't too bad. I can provide colors if anyone is interested. I'll try to take some really nice pictures once it's all done.

    Love your build man!! If I may make a suggestion, the x-mas ornaments seem like they may be a bit to fragile, have you thought of racket balls? Easy to work with and you dont have to worry about shattering them if you hit something. Just an idea, keep up the awesome work man!!!
  23. May 9, 2012, 7:05 PM - Re: WIP: Scratchbuilt Jetpack! #73

    Holy lord! This build is AWESOME! I had planned to do one the same way...since i work at an art store i got a crapload of foamboard for free that we were gonna throw out cuz its navy blue on one side...and then i never got to printing out the templates. This sir, is truly inspiring and making me think maybe i should do a scratch build to go with the helmet scratch build i did. Excellent work bro...just outstanding! If you sold these i would by one!

    The ornaments are actually plastic and pretty thick, so no worries there. I was actually going to use two solid wood balls I picked up from the craft store but they turned out to be hard as rock. The ornaments are actually working out very well...very easy to cut and shape but still sturdy.
  25. May 9, 2012, 9:34 PM - Re: WIP: Scratchbuilt Jetpack! #75

    You can fill em with foam to sturdy them up further, or even with resin, but then they will be a bit heavier. I wanted to ask how you did the ring where the rocket attches with the slots in it. It looks so perfect, i cant quite figure out how you did that so well.
