Saz's Jetpack
« on: Oct 21, 2010, 07:15 AM »
Hiya,

I've been feeling a bit naked without a Jetpack for a while now, but managed to snatch up an end of run Bobbyfett UK Jetpack for a cheap price.

Because it was end of run, the cast needed a bit of work done on it, however, once the airholes were filled and the flash was removed I had myself a great looking Jetpack.



I kept it simple to work with my outfit, once I get a smaller brush I will add some detailing to the rocket and then weather it.

I bought a cheap backpack and a 1 shop dog harness for the strapping and put clips onto the pack and cut the backpack so it made a harness, then  measured up the right amount of strapping to give me full tension on the backpack. It worked pretty well first time!



So all I need to do now is find a way to transport it, though the rocket and the boosters are removable. :)

Where did you get this pack and how much was it?  I am really in the need for a pack.

Well initially I was building my own and I was flipping around ebay trying to find bits and pieces to make my life easier when I stumbled across a full jet pack by Bobby Fett UK for much cheaper than he was offering when he did his first few runs. Turns out it was an end of run Jetpack and I gave him an offer which he accepted.

I did have to do some filling and sanding on it, but it really was no hassle for me, so I'm mega happy I got a great builder's work for cheap.

Just thought I'd throw in some pictures of me wearing the pack in full armour.

I have to admit, my outfit does really feel more complete with it.
