The day's weather wasn't so bad so after mowing the lawn, I skipped (for now) cutting the hatch plate on the back and opted to paint the body and rocket of the jetpack

Thanks vod, the weather hasn't been bad lately. Had a small holiday. There's still more latex to get off. I need to pull airbrush apart again. Think my paint is bit lumpy
I still haven't decided on colours the same as fetts Rotj version, or paint area I've started orange
I'm thinking if I go orange....then it'll be distinctive, or if I go rotj colours....it could be a specific group of protectors

I'm sure whatever you do will be an awesome piece of art just like your helmet.

I'm likely to print my rocket again in a different way so that i can run a threaded rod through it for easy removal from the pack for transport. I'd send the one I'm not using to you if it didn't cost an arm and a leg.

I forgot I put that as my location
It was a mental state at the time........ and work
Here's the other side, sort of done. I want this side to have bit more weathering. Not 100% happy at moment, looks too uniform...but I'll fix it up.

I'd think there would be some areas along the edge that wouldn't be as weathered.  Like if a cape covered part of it but the sand or tree branches were hitting the exposed areas after hitting thecape there might be some different weathering also.

Yeah she needs work, I was going to hang the cape on the right, idea is to hide my quick draw .....or something like that
