Okay Folks,
I've have my kit official going on two years come March 12th 2017 and have actually put my kit in for a second go at app after I lost a bunch of weight and had to rebuild. I purchased a jetpack body from an awesome Vode that goes by Malice Skirata. Now being the OCD Guy that i am I love the base pack but wanted to take the add on parts and really make them snazzy, Here comes the Rafal Fett-Works 3D files for the vent, the thrusters and thruster greeblies, and the "piece de resistance" the Z6 jetpack Rocket/grappling hook, as well as the tank toppers and bottoms.












Not a lot to really look at at the moment but for a really lightweight JP and the additional lightweight printed parts I should be able to troop for the entire day with this thing on my back. My next step is going to be getting the rest of the parts printed as well as getting the bondo out to cover the fiberglass base where it's showing through. Did I mention this is my budget build as well... because it's hopefully going to come in considerably under normal JP build budgets.

There are updates, I've just not uploaded the photos yet. Majority of the parts are printed and glued together for the ones that get glued. Spot putty and some filler primer are gonna be the next steps on the printed parts. Once they're smooth I'll attach them and smooth the seams.

Nothing too spectacular at this point.



Basically all the big stuff was printed in two pieces and then super glued together. The prints are at a layer height of .2mm so they're fairly visible. My printer can print clear down to .01mm thin on layers but I'm impatient and would rather bondo the layers away than wait for days for the parts to come off the printer.

Lol the ref is actually translucent so if I were to put a light in it it would glow like a sith saber lol. The colors are merely the filament I buy because white is so boring.
