    20140322_172332-jpg Finally had time to trim and assemble some shin tools. Still have to paint.
    20140315_172716-jpgAlso, I had a minor accident with my jetpack..
    20140315_172847-jpg20140315_172733-jpgIt kind of was a "happy" accident, since I have always wanted an excuse to re-make the bottom of the pack.
    20140315_172824-jpg20140322_172401-jpg Just needs a final sand, and some paint!

    Re: Rotj Build Up

    That is a bummer about your jetpack. Are you going to try & blend the paint in or sand it down & repaint the whole thing. Well it is warming up & you can get to painting here soon.

    Yeah my pack got knocked over and took a 3 foot fall. I think I am going to repaint the whole pack. Might be a while though, it is 20 degrees and supposed to snow tomorrow

    20140315_172847-jpg20140330_125414-jpgbottom-jpg Soooo... after re-making the "vent" at the bottom of the pack and placing it, i realized that i placed the vent too close to the front of the pack. Here is mine next to an original pack, to show the new location.
    20140330_125444-jpg20140330_125455-jpg I also re-made the vent, again, for a third time. This time I included the "Circle" layer, that i forgot every other time!

    Re: Rotj Build Up

    Had a day of really nice weather this weekend and I squeezed in a couple hours of painting!
    Started with some Shin tool painting. I still need to add lots of weathering...
    20140415_084114-jpg20140412_181614-jpg
    I have been working on my pack as well, and decided for now i will just blend the new paint in..

    I also added the 3-pin connector on the bottom of the pack.

    Re: Rotj Build Up

    Lance you did a nice job of blending the paint. Looking good. Are you using airbrush or spray cans? I understand not wanting to repaint the whole pack this is alot of extra work.

    Thanks Chris, I wish I had an airbrush! For now this is all krylon spray paint, Bauhaus yellow if I am not mistaken. It literally went from 76 degrees to 25 degrees in two days so my window if painting was very small!

    I know all too well about that window. We had the same thing it was in the seventies over the weekend & snowing on Monday this week. Had a couple of little items to paint so did it with a door cracked in the basement for some fresh air.

    Hopefully it will be nice again on Sunday! All i need to do is paint (every part) and I will be "done"! Getting tired of staring at all my un-painted parts..

    Finally got some good weather around these parts!
    I weathered my rotj suit and cape, which are still out drying at the moment...
    Nearly completed my gauntlets, just need to weather here and there, and add in a light to the left gauntlet....

    I also attached mojo toe spikes to my boots, and painted my newer rkd shoulders....
