My jetpack is about 90% complete. I'd still like to rework the battle damage some. And I'm waiting on a set of decals from DeLucks.
Not sure when I'll get to work on it again. My wife, my son, and I are moving into an extended stay tomorrow. A tree fell on our house a couple of weeks ago, and we're in the process of finding a new place. I'm happy I got as much done at my mom's house as I did.
Indeed we were fortunate it fell in the afternoon. Especially considering our son's room was destroyed. My wife was the only one home. She's an Air Force vet, and she said when it hit, it sounded like a bomb going off.
Thanks! I'm really happy how it's turning out. I'm kind of surprised, actually. Since I did all of the painting in two days. Lol. Thank God for TDH community. While it's not professional quality, I'm happy with it.
I can only imagine. I'm former US Army myself ('94 to '04), and as a Combat Engineer we got to play with and deploy TNT, C4, Shaped Charges, Bangalore torpedo's, etc. So I'm familiar with the "Boom"! Scary nonetheless. And to have destroyed your son's room......Thank God, he wasn't in there sleeping or playing! Scary indeed.
Like you, I'm truly thankful for this awesome community! I certainly couldn't have gotten to where I am today without em'! And don't be too hard on yourself, you should be proud of your ESB Fett!
I've been afforded several opportunities to work on my jetpack. I've added a good deal more weathering. Yesterday I was able to apply my decals from DeLucky. I'm pretty pleased with the result, but I'm sure I'll be tweaking it forever.
Had to include a comparison of my son's Disney Store jetpack
