Title: Boba Fett Jetpack Beacon - ESB
Post by: Sea_Marshall on Feb 18, 2018, 12:27 AM
Hi folks,

Curious about the jetpack beacon for ESB Fett.

BRL states:
Jetpack
•   Must be a medium green (matte) distinguishable from the armor with red and yellow accent detailing and must feature exposed silver damage.
•   Must be painted to match references in both color and weathering pattern.
•   Must have red “piano keys” mounted horizontally across the top of the main body.
•   Must have a silver beacon light with a black top on the left and a silver stabilizer on the right.
•   The main body must feature a white vertical half-oval decal on the lower left and two horizontal red-brown stripes on the lower right.
•   Jetpack must fit snugly against the back plate without sagging and must be supported by white nylon/canvas straps which extend from the slots in the back plate.

Here is an ESB Screen reference photo:

The beacon is clearly a brass color. I'm looking to keep screen accuracy as close as possible.
Is the black beacon topper an oversight, or is there a reason for it being black in color vs brass?

It's worth noting that the CRLs are a living document that we're always talking about and refining so bear with us in that regard.

There's a little better shot of the beacon. It's a discussion worth having so we'll go from there.

The beacon top is black.
