My scratch built ESB jet pack


My scratch built ESB jetpack

Just wanted to know what you guys thought...
I made this thing from pvc pipe, sintra, a gopher poison cone, child's toys, and many other odds and ends. It took three days.

I love seeing these, people scratchbuild these for $30 of materials or buy fiberglass ones for $200+

Most of them all end up looking great

Go to Wal-mart and look in the lawn and garden stuff. It is a yellow cone with a white screwcap on one end. Look in the poisons. There should be some on the shelf as soon as spring starts to spring.

That black ops trooper is pretty sharp! I see two different lids though...I know one is a modded Rubies but the other is what? Modified BARC trooper? Great work on the JP as well!

The Black Ops in one of the pics is a modified Rubies (which I'm willing to sell to anyone who wants it). The other is my own creation based on a picture on page 30 of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game Rebellion Era Sourcebook. I took a baseball helmet, cut the visor off, then carefully bondoed a sintra built face mask onto the helmet. I made the whole thing myself. It even has an LED in the bottom right corner of the visor (which is red plexi) for effect. It's a big hit back here in Oklahoma with JediOKC. Everybody likes the black ops. Here's a closeup pic of the helmet.

Boba was my first costume, and progress pics are non-existant. I basically used the templates and just pieced it together bit by bit using a phenomenal substance you get at Wal-Mart called "Welder". It comes in a silver tube and you can find it over in the paint section. I then used the Smithsonian reference photos and slowed down the shots of Boba in ESB to get a good look at the gauntlets. A lot of it was less measuring and more "eyeballing" as we say in Oklahoma. I just made them look as close as I could. I then bondoed all the cracks and sanded, primered and painted them.

I give many a great kudos!:D:D:D I was thinking about constructing mine out of styrofoam, but this seems to work just as good! Now, I'll have to go to Lowe's this week...
