    Hi All ... For the last few years I have been working on a Jango Fett build all most all parts are Bobamaker, Just ordered backplate and foot armour from Bobamaker too ... Starting to look for a jetpack but I am looking for a light weight one because of an old back injury and would like a JT-12 jetpack any help or feedback would be great... Also if anyone has any feedback on my build that would be great thanks

    You are on your way.

    First critique I would have though is to get a Jango Fett girth belt. You have a Boba Fett one now. A Jango belt is all leather bolo cord that closes with laces in the back.

    Second critique is weathering. You look all clean. Jango was fairly dirty.

    That would immediately get you to looking better.

    weathering is easy and really tough to mess up. Just use some acrylic craft paints. I use black, gray and burnt umber. You just dab it on and wipe off the excess. It you do to much just wipe it off....if there is not enough then you add more.....

    Seeker has a video tutorial on youtube that shows the process perfectly.

    Here is the video. Our very own Seeker made this and we all know how great his Jango Fett is.

    Throw out what ever you got and I will be glad to help with what I can.

    As far as a light weight jet pack goes I would look for a quality fiberglass cast. It should be lighter than most resin cast. I would think with most back issues the key is going to be the harness and not really the pack. You will need to find a harness and system that takes the weight off the shoulders as much as possible. The Seeker harness may work for you if you use it like he has it designed. The harness has two straps that you can attach to the belt/cod system to take weight off the shoulders and disperse it over the body.

    something that stands out to me that i don't think has been covered so far is your armor spacing. there's just too much space between the ab plate and the chest plates. the chest plates and diamond are fine, and there's just a touch too much space between the neck plate and the top of the chest plates, but close enough. but there is a lot of space between the top of the ab and bottom of the chest plates
