    Jan 21, 2011, 4:10 PM - Rubies Re-Work and MOW Jetpack paintup #1

    Hey TDH members,

    I thought it's about time I make a post and introduce myself after months of visiting and reading everyones fantastic posts. What started as a Halloween costume a few months ago, has turned into a borderline addiction...haha. This all started after I bought a Rubies helmet in mid October (before I found out about TDH and found out how many awesome builders there were out there) and built up a suit which I am now slowly upgrading. Anyway, as I wait for my Bobamaker helmet to arrive (March maybe?) I thought I would take the old Rubies out and give it a new paint job just to keep me busy until the new bucket comes. I have also included a few pics of my MOW Jetpack as well.Not screen accurate, however if it bugs me over time, I may make some adjustments. Just thought I'd share my first attempts with you all, and any new comers searching the site as I did and continue to...Thanks!

    Let me know what you think...

    DJ Science

    sorry, here's the before pic (I'm sure you're all familiar with the Rubies budget bucket) but just in case you're not....

    You did a pretty good job fixing up that bucket!
