    One question for the other accuracy nuts out there....Did I get the jet pack mounted high enough??? I have always hated not having it sit high on the back the way it does in the films. I tried to make sure this one and the new arena pack sit up instead of sagging down.

    So does it look mounted right???

    It looks perfect. Did you attached the front straps to the codpiece?

    I haven't yet but that is the plan. I am going to cut the wings off too when I connect them. I have never noticed them that much until I read about several people who have cut them off, and now I notice them on every troop....lol

    I need to redo a few snaps that have come unglued, and I will probably add the snaps to the cod at the same time that I make the repairs.

    it will help tons if you attache the straps to the codpiece. you will notice less stress on your back.

    and it will help to keep it high. Yeah those wings on the codpiece suck. I notice my waist looked to wide with them and i cut them off and got the notice round shape and follow the contour of our shape.

    I have found it very difficult to get shots of the jet packs when I am trooping. I need to specifically take some pics while I am on my next troop.

    I have had a couple questions about jetpacks lately from a few different guys who are building up Jangos so I am going to give this thread a bump.

    Good looking packs Chris! Hope to paint my Bobamaker pack by Christmas using Seekers color chart. Just got a few colors left to find.

    Are you getting a Kamino pack? If so I will give you this warning, during the painting process the colors are going to look too bright and kind of off. But when you get to the end they all come together. When you add the purple mist spray over the blue, and the orange mist on the yellow it changes the tones a lot. Then when you add the clear coat and weathering it really sets off the exactness of the colors.

    I am still very happy with the color lists I used on these two packs.

    Mullreel, your costume is amazing! I'd probably get slagged for saying this but I've always like Jango better, his colors, uniform, even his story. I've been reading a lot of the "Legends" books and I love when a little mention of him pops up. Also I want to give you mad props on your trooping. I bet you made those kids day! I was working on a full size R2 for just that thing, but then my son was born and it got put in a shelf. I'd love to have a complete 1:1 Jango not only to have in my movie room, but also to troop for the kids. Just awesome sir!

    I have been out of the loop for some time . . . And I have to say that the quality/molds of the jet packs are much accurate as opposed to what I have.

    The RS Props packs are very well done. The detail and the craftsmanship is top notch.

    Mullreel,

    Do you have pic of the arena pack? And which do you like better, Kamino or arena? Btw, the pictures look AWESOME! I am in the beginning stages of my build and gathering items.

    If you look in my main WIP thread you will see pics of me with both arena packs.

    As far as which I like better..........it is kind of a toss up. If I had to give an edge I would probably go with the arena pack just because it is pure Jango Fett.
