Jango Arena Jet Pack (Stubby) Blueprints

    Re: Jango Arena Jet Pack (Stubby) Blueprints

    I have a quick question.
    If I were to print this out full size to get a 1:1 scale how big should I go? Could you maybe provide some reference dimensions that I could use to verify that I have plotted it at the right size?

    [FONT=Times New Roman]Until I get the Arena templates completed and posted you can use the standard jetpack templates as a starting point: [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman]http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/gallery2.php?g2_itemId=15447[/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman][/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman]Or you can use Skupilkinson’s Pep Arena pack templates: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=26905[/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman][/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman]My original templates are 15" wide (not including the rocket nozzles), but based on additional reference pics that have since surfaced I now believe that the standard Boba pack is 16 ” wide. Since Boba Fett is 6’ tall with medium build 16 ” wide seems to fit pretty well. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman][/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman]As for the correct size for a specific individual it really depends on how big you are. If you are 5’6” a standard size pack might be a tad big, as with the rest of the costume scale is very important. The actor that played Jango (Temuera Morrison) is only 5’7” so I suspect that the pack he used was scaled down to match his stature when compared to the one that Jeremy Bulloch used since Jeremy is 5” inches taller.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman][/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman]Just my 2 cents.[/FONT]

    I think the design you have at the top of this thread will serve my needs a little better as I can use it for visual reference as well.
    So if I am understanding you correctly, the pack is 16 3/4" wide from the left-outside edge to the right-outside edge like I show in the attached image?
    Thanks for your help WOF. I really appreciate it!

    Thanks Seeker!

    Jedi_Outcast77 - Yes, the overall width as you have it shown should be 16 3/4" for a 72" Fett.

    Have a good one.

    Nice to see you back, Alan. Your templates have been tremendously helpful to me for the multiple costumes -- male and female, Boba-based and Jango -- that I'm working on currently. I've tweaked your helmet template a bit to more closely reflect the measurements of the originals whilst still being symmetrical, but I couldn't have done it without your work to start from. I'd be delighted to discuss what my researches have turned up, if you're interested. In any case, I plan to extoll your part in these costumes' existance whenever anyone asks.

    In the meantime, how are things going with the home front? With youre recent uptick in activity here, I presume all is well with your son?

    Re: Jango Arena Rocketpack (Stubby) Blueprints

    I like this style of jet better then Boba Fett's. It does not get in the way meaning the big rocket.

    Re: Jango Arena Rocketpack (Stubby) Blueprints

    The original jet pack drawings were done few years ago and since then my reference library has grown significantly. So it was time to revisit these drawings. The originals were close and to see the differences in the two sets of drawings you would have to do an overlay. I am very pleased with this version.

    Actually I have been reworking these blueprints (see first post for updated drawings). I have made a number of changes based on all the new reference pics that have been made available, take a look an let me know what you all think.

    Re: Jango Arena Jet Pack (Stubby) Blueprints

    As the jetpack has been completely redrawn I am still developing the templates, there are a couple of parts that I need to generate a 3D model in order to be able to extract a true flat pattern. Which is next on the list to be done.

    Question for those Jangos out there what size would you like to see this Jetpack done in? I am thinking about 16" wide would cover most would-be Jangos out there, but I am open to what folks would like to see/need.
