4 year old size Boba fett Jet pack

OK! I'm far enough into the Jet pack to post some pics...
To see his "Armor" go here...http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=13375.msg196888#msg196888
If you would like to see his "Blaster" go here...http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=13421.0
"Bucket"http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=13792.0



I've had so much fun building this!

Again taking the things around me and using them to my advantage...





Gluing some stuff...


Trimmed off tubes and capped off. Also capped tops with sculpted foam toppers...


Put this top thing in...


Then I put the Directional thrusters, stabilizing gyro & missile targeting range finder...


Using $ store foam foot balls...



Then I took a metal rod and filed it sharp and shoved it through the Missile so it would be sturdy.

And after all is said and done...
a Miniature Jet pack...


I'm going to give this a few coats of a caulking wash "just a mixture of water, elmers glue & silicone caulking" to fill in any gaps and give a strong shell.

=) Thomas.

The Foam is coming from my Dad & Intel it is some sort of packing material he said when they get shipments in these are between the products he gets... so theres a grip of it just getting thrown away and now hes saving it for me.

You have to sign this kid up for Mandalorian Mercs. Even though this is just a Halloween costume, you can sign him up, and in 14 years, you can see him walking in conventions worldwide
