    Zoltan Tyrell's Jango Jetpack

    I am proud to post the WIP for Zoltan Tyrell's Jango Pack. With any luck this will be complete over the next week or so.

    Here she is as of tonight. Not very exciting, but give it time

    Excuse my ignorance as I'm new but is that a MOW jet pack? Or it must be a newer version as I see some details not known to mine.

    This is not a MOW jetpack! It is a Bobby Fett Uk Jetpack (BFUK)

    HA! Allow me to take a moment and disengage the foot resting within my mouth! I'm learning slowly but surely, really does look wicked though!

    I got the yellow down today. I will be putting the last coat on tomorrow and then masking and puting the blue down on Friday. No photos yet, but they are coming.

    I am indeed the maker.

    Don't worry about it, I would think the majority of packs out there currently are Christian's work.

    are you going to be making arena jetpacks by any chance?

    I would love to and I have done some research and got a load of reference material together, but it is finding the time to do it.


    ......anyway, here is the yellow/orange colour.



    tomorrow I hope to get the white done and then the blue after that. This way will reduce the amount of difficult, time consuming masking.

    Re: Zoltan Tyrell's Jango Jetpack

    Loving it! Hey maker, quick question, how are you holding your warhead on? I wanted to attach it to a piece of pvc pipe of proper dimension as a "male" end and just slide it down into the pack which would be the "female" end. Just wondering how yours is/will attach. Thanks.

    Re: Zoltan Tyrell's Jango Jetpack

    That would work fine. My kit comes with a section of bolt/threaded rod embedded into the bottom of the warhead, it simply slots into the top section (with teeth) and is secured with a wing nut and washers inside. Same goes for the thrusters.

    Re: Zoltan Tyrell's Jango Jetpack

    Ok, I got the white done. The yellow is much more orange than the first photo and more representative. Now this is not how to paint a ROTJ scheme, but things can be done differently for Jango as it is not one big topical job, looks a little scrappy but will all come good with the blue and red! I am off work Monday and Tuesday, so this could be all finished up then.

    Re: Zoltan Tyrell's Jango Jetpack

    Harness is going well, just got a nice big fat heavy duty sewing machine to help out with the webbing too. I am planning for it to be as accurate as possible from what we can see of it in ref photos and that includes the 3rd - lower clip.

    I will confirm the extras too, did you want the light in the beacon also?

    Re: Zoltan Tyrell's Jango Jetpack

    Ok, so what I did not get a photo of was the pack after masking, a quick rub down and shot of primer to give a nice even base.

    Here it is with a shot of blue. I knwe the blue was not quite right but I was not feeling it in the pot, so after a nice blue base coat I can see we need to add a little purple to the mix......so off to get some paint. More to come later.
