I just commented on this pic on FB....hahaha. That is a great pic. I can't wait to put it all together and troop it.
Incredible jango seeker!!!!
Did some weathering and finish work on the Kamino pack today....not enough time to take pics.
I should be able to post some progress pics tomorrow, and I am about ready to mount the clips and strap this thing to my back.
So stay tuned.......
Really like your jetpack paint ups Mullreel the colors really pop. Love how you did the Arena pack. And of course Seeker's Jango a true inspiration to shoot for hah
Those colors have lost a lot of "pop" now that the weathering is going on..lol
I hope to have some time to work on them on my days off this week, and possibly finish them up. I need to finish the greeblies for the Kamino pack and finish the rocket up. The Arena pack needs its final assembly and weathering. So if I can get about 1-2 hrs on Thursday and Friday I should be able to knock these out.
I think I may try to put all of the links that I have found and used in this thread too, so that future Jango's can find them easier. I know how irratating searching can be at times.
just for reference I wanted to put as many links in this thread as I can to help others as they search.
I will add some more threads as I remember them. I hope this helps out guys in their searches.
I also don't think I ever listed my paints in a plain and easy to see place.
Rustoleum Royal Blue
Rustoleum White 2X
Valspar Equipment Yellow 5339-08
Krylon Flat black
Krylon clear satin finish
craft paints for weathering
Krylon metallic aluminum for the rocket
Rustoleum accents Midnight Blue
Rustoleum 2X Slate Blue
craft paints for weathering
CA glue for all assembly and earth magnets to hold the rocket in place.
Nice job Mullreel. Thanks for the update.
Honestly, I don't think I will ever do a classic jetpack only because people confuse me with Boba Fett enough as it is. Arena jetpack ftw
I am definitely more fond of the arena pack. I will be getting the arena pack ready to troop hopefully tomorrow. I have a Hospital visit coming up next week so I will have to decide which one to troop. I will probably do the Kamino just because I have never trooped it before. Eventually when I get my Boba Fett finished up I will most likely repaint the Kamino pack to Boba colors.
The clips are installed and these are Finished....
I will post up some follow up pics when I get some troops in with each of them.
Awesome pics Mullreel.
Just got a new tote for Jango. I think it will probably greatly affect which JP I troop with the most. The arena pack will fit in it, the Kamino pack won't. That will mean I will have to carry it, and that gets old.
Here is the new carrier......
King Kong Mobile All-Purpose Job Box - 1840110 | Tractor Supply Company
It is nice to have everything fit, including the helmet and jet pack.
Looks awesome! I miss wearing the Kamino jetpack. It looks great on you man!
Thanks Seeker, I liked trooping it for a change of pace. I will probably continue to troop both for a while depending on my mood. I was wondering if I would bump into more things since this one is wider than the arena pack but I didn't notice any difference.
And the SEEKER harness worked and felt great.
We got a great reaction from the kids at the hospital, it was a good troop.
