    Jango Fett Jet Pack Fitment with Metal Harness Rig Project

    Hey guys. So recently a good friend of mine stopped by the workshop to collect his finished helmet that I had painted for him. He asked about the metal harness rig, as he had been lucky enough to try one on already. So we got talking and one thing led to another. Now I know the accurate Boba rig is a little excessive, but the goal here was two fold, to achieve the correct mounting of the pack, Jango wears it very high, and to get a comfortable support for trooping. The obvious advantages of the metal frame is the massive support it offers for posture and weight distribution, anyone who has tried them will concure I am sure.

    Here is the result.

















    Now, what I did not take a photo of is the mountings, set inside the pack, a good 2 inchs lower than the standard Boba mountings, as supplied by BM. We opted to replicate the mounting points through the hatch, which seems to be the way the screen used pack is mounted, by using this method you can get the pack much higher. The whole thing can then be but on and tightened up with the vest on.

    Here is the the screen used pach fixed through the main hatch. You can see that it should be worn tighter to the back armour.

    This harness rig is superb! It works well! Doesn't feel like you have it on.

    If you want Rob. I can take some picks of the inside of my jetpack.

    That is so cool. I was thinking to build a Jango Armor some day when I know how to start it. And this is a great.

    I got to admit Phill this looks much better, must be more comfortable for you, especially on those long troops we go on.

    I'd go for a Fett myself, maybe a custome build, one of my fave costumes, but funds not avaliabe, and i'm digging deep at the moment in saving for Cad Bane bits&bobs.

    Amazing work! Makes my set up look real primitive. Great Jango too!

    do you have pics of where the buckles on the jetpack connect to the 3 buckles on the harness? I just want to see what I have to add to the Jetpack to do this

    I will ask Phil to try and post them. The anchor points were 2 about 3" from the bottom of the pack, on the most raised sections inside and 1 just infront of the raised exhaust port section (from inside it is raised). The key to it is mounting the 2 main anchor point much lower than say Boba's. Photos to follow.

    Rob.

    Here you go! The webbing has been retained by pop riveting and placing a washer to secure the loops.
