Pepakura Arena jetpack
« on: Jun 26, 2012, 05:43 PM »
Here are a few pictures of the arena jetpack that I'm building out of pepakura. I'm pretty good with the stuff as Ive done 2 Gears of War helmets and my Mando gauntlets from pepakura but this will definitely be the most challenging build Ive done yet. Mostly because the jetpack will have to be hardened in sections.

Have fiberglass resin'd some of the outside. Also reinforced the inside back section with foam core and fiberglass resin'd over it. Going to try to finish the resin inside and out today so I can Rondo inside the large piece this week and then start adding the smaller pieces.
Will post pictures later.

Where did you get the Pep file for the Jetpack?
Oh and I want to appropriate your R2 unit as well :P

Have a good one,

http://www.therpf.com/f24/fierfeks-star-wars-pepakura-file-development-122071/

This is where I found the version i'm using for the pep file. There is also another version in the tutorial section on here but I prefer the one that Fierfek made.

Also thanks even though its just the large cooler R2D2 :)

I could use an extra place to store frosty beverages :P

One last question on the Pep file, was it designed for 8x11 or A4?

Have a good one,
Hagen

I think it was A4 and then i used pepakura designer to change the size to letter. You can download pepakura designer free and then when you change the size to letter and then just move the files around to fit the pages correctly. You just have to print it then because you cant save your changes with the free version.

Are you planning to go to the armor party at David's in November? If so I could teach you some basics there.

Keeping my eye on this, looking good so far.

Looking good mate. When I built my the Arena jetpack for my Jango, I used a combination of WOF templates for the body, and this pep file for the rest. What I did to prevent warping was to make the body out of 1mm card. I printed the templates onto normal paper then traced them onto the card. Because the thicker card has a lot more structural integrity than cardstock that you can print onto when fiberglassed it didn't warp at all.

Anyway I look forward to seeing more progress :D

Progress!







So it's all pepped, Fiberglassed & Rondo'd. All that's left is sanding and paint. I love it so far.
