As my previous posts have stated and you may be aware I have been redrawing and editing my complete decal catalogue on both ESB and ROTJ to make them more screen accurate. And as such I have been creating my own versions of the ROTJ and Supertrooper jetpack decals and thought I would share my results and ask you guys your opinions and thoughts. as well as showimg you my processes and how I got to the point I am atm a Work in progress so to speak in the interests of clarity showing how I am developing my decals to the community.

First of all I must pay due credit to Members such as Rafalfett , Wizard of flight and JBDubz who I have asked to many questions and have kindly replied and given their invaluable input/advice.......Thanks guys.

I work in the graphic design industry and have been very keen on Typography my whole career , I like a nice font lol.
I noticed the markings on the ROTJ looked very similar to Glyphs which are characters that have been used within graphic design and are elimental symbols , intended to represent readable characters etc,

I started with the basics , Helvetica was the industry standard font in the 1970/80s and before the birth of desk top publishing Letraset was one of the only tools at hand for a graphic designer.In the images the decals look like they are/were dry transfers, and I read a post here a while back that they came off during shooting and were repainted on.


Using Adobe Illustrator I typed in a capital D , E , W , T . U's 2 minus symbols and a couple of Glyphs (One looks like 2 K's joined together) . The more I looked at this glypth tho the more I thought although it looked right it wasn't and the one in the image looked like a capital K back to back ,

I reversed the E and trimmed the horizontal parts and joined it together to the D , and did the same with the W's and the K's , turned a U 180° turned the chevrons round and cut the T's down and rotated them and ended up with this.


I traced the decals at the top of the tank from this image directly in illustrator and created my own version of the top of the main tank decal by eye.

I cut them out of vinyl and ended up with this.

Applied to a DVH 7CS Jetpack to gauge sizing.

The Supertrooper is and still is a bit of a mystery to me tbh , I have found hardly any reference images other than some black and white images a Rafalfett jetpack decal schematic, and two images one is a snowy backpack which bares striking similarities decal wise to the supertrooper.

I based my version on the packs decals and colour scheme, Grey , Black and red.


Cut out




Any thoughts , comments and feedback would be greatly appreciated as my ROTJ and Supertrooper knowledge is limited being an ESB guy myself , I have searched through the forums past posts and where possible have found the images above for reference. If I have missed anything or could make any changes to improve on where I am atm i would be grateful for tips/advice.
