Title: My meh jetpack build
Post by: 924man on May 03, 2017, 07:30 PM
I built this in maybe a week before celebration, and didnt end up wearing it as my back plate for my suit needs to be fitted better after i get a vest. i know its not approve able but it is my first jetpack, i do plan to make the one from rebels down the road after more people build them and they become easier to make as people figure out how to make them. i know mine looks meh.

I think it looks pretty cool and it's a great first attempt.

Since you mentioned Rebels style jetpacks, I figured you meant Sabine's/Imperial Commando jetpacks. This member had a really great thread where he builds one out of dollar store materials (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=123425.60). I know that AliyaJ made Sabine's newer, more angular jetpack and left the template online (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=133188.0). I also hear rumors that TMA has the mold for that jetpack and will start production eventually.
