I've managed to do a little bit more on the jetpack during the festive season, only a little bit of silver left to put on the thruster and attach the metal greeblies from Dark Side

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 !

The unmasking went better than I expected with no major problems, just pencilled on the tank emblems, I could do with a new set of eyes on these just to make sure they look ok

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 (y)

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 o_O
