Jett definitely has a mild obsession with jet packs.  But, with a name like Jett...seems sort of logical.   :P

Holy.....jetpacks. Awesome work, love your paintwork, great detail. Got some good edges on the weathering too, realistic and thick.....doesn't look added on. Now I know why you said you were upset when I put a hole in mine
Nice movie collection too

He does have some really good movies, doesn't he?   :laugh: 

Wish I lived in England so I could go to Jett's house and get some help with weathering.  I do ok.  But I'm not on this level.

Jet-pack Acquisition Disorder?

If itís anything at all like BRD (black rifle disease) - then thereís no cure.
All you can do is hang on tight and enjoy the ride.

Thatís a touchť if I ever heard one!

Also depends on the process in which you want to know the number ;P
80+ resin cast helmets, close to 30 pep based, 3 bucket based builds, one hybrid pep/sintra/for sale sign, and a couple 3d printed ones that werenít Mando. Iím currently got two 3d print ones some folks printed for me that Iím working on finishing.

Oh Iím also working on making a modular helmet out of one of my many trades. Itís gonna have a Cody visor thatís seated in some RF stalk earcap bases and will be switchable to the electro binoculars.
