Title: Finished - WOF Fett (mostly) jetpack build
Post by: Tek Sa'an on Oct 07, 2013, 10:34 PM
I've been trying to get this done before Oni-Con and Halloween (and my armor upgrades). I've been looking at posts and pictures from all over trying to figure this out. It's not perfect, but I'm trying to get the point across.

Sintra, heavy cardboard tubes, a 2 liter bottle and a plastic sign. A little bit of everything is in here.

Cardstock for the side pieces.

Spray foam, resin and tweaks/pieces being cut off.

Sanded the bondo and made some top caps....kind of. The side areas are pretty goofy looking. I'm hoping when it's all painted, it'll look a little better.

Spot putty, sanded and resined more. Those side pieces cracked earlier, so I thought it might be good to do.

Still working on it, but here's where I am now.

Rocket and thrusters are being worked on. Pictures soon.

More to come.

A little more progress. And I'm seriously doubting that any paint will make this look better as stated before. Lots of dents and holes and crap, but it's my first jetpack, so it's okay.

A little black on the primer. My thrusters are bondoed and smoothed and primed.

Parts of the jetpack have been painted yellow (and armor painting/progress on the lower shelf).

You're doing great, scratch building is hard.

A little update.

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

Yellow and green applied. A little black for weathering.

Trying to make the rocket.

Some hardcore weathering and dark green. I used a crap load of Molotow black paint and alcohol, then wiped it down. I like it. The thrusters aren't in permanently yet. The rocket is the last thing I'm working on, and it's driving me nuts. It looks like crap. I have one week left until Oni-Con, so hopefully I can get it finished.

I have to do some touching up here and there, but it's not as bad as I thought it would be.

Thanks. Aurebesh looked better than Mandalorian letters. That's all cut vinyl. it looks really good on there up close.

Pictures are working for me, looks good.

Thanks!
