After a fair bit of swearing and stabbing myself a few time with my screwdriver I think I've cracked it hvacdontennantlim, the digits weren't moving when I turned the little screw but add a bit of blood and hey presto!!! We're down to 5volt
Very nice !! The black buttons select either the incoming or leaving voltage to be displayed on the readout. The button you were turning is called a potentiometer, which varies the voltage resistance for the board. If you're ok with the brightness of the lamp, running at 5v will make the battery last a little longer. If you're not worried about the battery usage, you could bump the voltage to 6v to make the lamp a little brighter...
I also had some time to make a bit of progress on the jetpack today after ordering a few shiny bits from Dark Side, after a bit of greeblie test fitting I laid on some primer, then some silver before masking before laying the blue down
It's a steady WIP and I ain't got a clue as it's my first time doing this kind of thing, I've been watching all the amazing builds on this site and I'm hopefully gonna have some fun playing with all the techniques I've seen people using
Looking Good there Zom !! You're further along with your JP than I am. I've got the silver down and stenciled part of the damage on, hopefully I can get back on it...If I could just get my work to keep depositing the checks while I work on the Jetpack for a week or two, I'd be in great shape..lol !
I think I've got as far as I can with the jetpack now, I'm now waiting for some shiney bits from MachineCraft and Dark Side, I've also managed to get hold of the gas connector greeblie thanks to Cameron so thanks for that man, once all those come through it'll be time to dull it down and seal it all in, I know it's not 100% screen accurate but I'm hoping it's close enough, if there's anything glaringly obvious I've missed it'd be greatly appreciated if you good people could let me know. The next question is do I add the rivet????
Thanks rnbuda it was scary unmasking it that's for sure!! I've gone for the thruster greeblies, collar, beacon, stabilizer and the vent at the bottom oh aswell as all the original connectors at the bottom
So the metal bits came from Dark Side and it was time to get to work! After a bit of a conversation with my armourer at the 501st I put a black wash over the blue on my beacon with a view to clearance, I've also gone for adding the dental file after the advice I got from Art Andrews so thank for the advice fella, the jetpack is a mystery for me, I think I've over done the paintwork and it's over weathered, I didn't realise there were so many versions, I don't know if it will go through clearance but I'm happy with how it's turned out, it is my first attempt too, all I'm waiting for now is a metal exhaust vent to come but this weekend I will be putting on some dull coat and that should be the Jetpack finished. Then it's onto getting everything for the gauntlets while im waiting for my armour to come through
