    Jun 12, 2007, 2:37 PM - Lighter Stubby Jetpack Parts #1

    So, what is the difference between these two jet pack nose cones? Other than on is in primer and the other is painted?

    The painted one weights 20 oz and the other weights 8.1 oz! Also the lighter one will float! So, I am going to do the rest of my jet pack parts in the lighter stuff.

    The other great thing is that if I run out of fuel over water, my jet pack can be used as a flotation device.

    Just remember to pull down on the red tab to activate the flashlight.

    Just light. Think of something with the cell structure like a Nerf football with the hard resin and not a soft one. Make sense?

    Wow a Nerf missile! That would be so cool! Then you can really fire it at a Jedi from rebel legion!
    Hey! Block this with you MR lightsabers!
    What was the the original mold to make it?
    Thanks

    We did do one that was software like Nerf. It did not take paint very well and weighted more.

    I was made from my original mold.

    Thanks. I only had enough stuff to make the one part. I am hoping that next month I can cast the rest.

    My wife got shot with a Nerf missile once. My roommate had a Lazer Tag gun with this huge freaking rocket on it and it shot her in the head from like 5 feet away on accident.
