Hello!!, I´m building a JP from scratch but at this point, I don´t notice that the central part was out of scale...........I was happy with how it was, but now I don´t know...........looking all the pics I use for reference, in many, it look closer...........but in other it look fatallllllllllllllll!!!!!
I´m considering cut the bad part and replace it.......but this could destroy all the good work.............what do you think? continue with this, or try to resolve ?..................

I think it looks fine. If cutting it out and replacing it isn't too much trouble for you and you are going for total screen accuracy then go ahead otherwis I say leave it. I am building one also but mine is kind of a custom made pack.. not really screen accurate but screen similar is what I would call it. Just until I have the dough to get a pack from rex.

I agree, finish this one, it looks good!!!

and make another one, or buy another one when you have enough time and money.

The tube size looks fine to me. its just setting a little to far out, the rocket will be way out there. OF course look at the prepro 3 suit, That jet pack is huge.

well, i think it looks sweet...considering i have not starting anything..coz is too daunting...i have only cut out the body...


i wonder what u use to till those pipes(those are PVC pipes right??) at the edges??

BLEAHHH, you mean how I glued the pipes? I super glued the pipes, and put some putty in the inside edge´s to give some durability................
 

Bleahhh

Active Hunter
thats ALOT of putty!!

i am still looking for big doses of putty-like substances to fill the gaps...any recommendations?

YOU KNOW WHAT I USE TO FILL BIG GAPS? POLIESTIRENE......THE HARD ONE..............I JUST CUT A PIECE SMALLER THAN THE HOLE, AND GLUED IT WITH SUPER GLUE....AND I SCULP ON IT.......SO I USE LESS PUTTY............IF YOU SEE IN MY JP, ALL THE PIECES ARE MADE IN POLIESTERENE AS BASE, AND THEN I SCULP A FINE SKIN OF PUTTI ON IT...................
