Jump Pack WIP for Heavy Weapons Brigade
« on: Mar 27, 2020, 05:42 PM »
I know a while back I was working on my interpretation of a Z6 styled Jetpack.  I needed to shelve that to get my kit ready to app.  I got my stripes and have begin to eye up a brigade update and with a couple troops under my belt I realized that the Z6 will just be a fun wall decoration.  It is very heavy and I wanted something lighter.  I am working towards the Jump pack as seen in Battlefront.  I'm not going for 100% accuracy, just heavily inspired. 



Mine will have a similar general coloration to the picture above as this matches my kit nicely and I look forward to adding some pictures soon.  Trying to make the best of the Stay at home order from the governor.  I hope to have some pics to share in the next day or so.  It is too rough to share for now.

I know that it has been a while, but I am getting this rolling again.  I found a file for a 1:6 scale jump pack online and I am scaling it up and printing it out.  Even split up this is going to take a lot of time I'm looking at 12 parts and the quick ones are 12 hour prints.  As I am going back to work next week I wish I would've started this a week ago, but that is what weekends are for.  Here's the pre-split up part for reference:



I will be making modifications to it as no Mando that I know would leave a scavenged item looking so blatantly Imperial.  As these were white, should I assume that it has a plastoid construction or go with the white paint over metal, then my paint over white?  It will have some of my own touches too with possible later additions for brigades.
