I got this jetpack approved for modern armor and figured I'd share the fruits of my research with everyone. Currently in the middle of breaking down the design and hope to have a general understanding on how to build this next month.

Awesome!! I know it is very similar to the Commander Cody Jetpack from Episode III. I'm waiting on approval for clone trooper forum to get specs for the Cody jetpack.

I'm looking forward to your build. I'm planning on making the entire new supercommando kit in the next few months so those reference pictures are great, thanks.

No problem, the search pictures weren't great so I had to rewatch the episode and pull what I could. Unlike those of Mandalore we're here to help each other where we can. I will post info as I have it available.

Yess! I watched that episode and immediately fell in love with that Jet pack design. Super interested in this one!

More reference images for you:

The thing with the Cody jetpack is that there really aren't exact specs since the kit was entirely digital.  That said, the CRL's for Cody give the jetpack dimensions as: "Jetpack measurements are approximately 15 ¾” Long and 8 ½” wide. "

I have started some vector template for my build, and rendered some part to print.Not exactly as seen in rebels since we don't know if it will be only canon  :laugh:.Sized upon Cody jetpack.


I was thinking of a cardboard build filled with expanding foam and finally bondo over all of this for the body.

This is looking great so far!  Can't wait to see it complete.

For the record, the jetpack from rebels is officially approved for custom builds, so you technically *could* make it exactly like the one from the show.  :)
