Mandalorian Field Technician Pack-Thoughts?
« on: Oct 25, 2012, 04:44 PM »
So, I may be extremely far away from actually starting work on my kit, but I made some doodles today and thought "Ehh. What the heck."


The idea is that it's a pack for a Mandalorian field tech, and it could be functional to take off, stand up and tools could come out for photo shoots and whatnot.

So I figured I'd get some feedback? Ideas? Thoughts? Criticism? All is welcome.

Be a little tricky to build legs that fold out that are more than the length of the pack or so, but it sounds like a pretty cool idea. The design looks good as well :).

Sounds pretty sweet to me. So if you have a rotatey radar, you should have blinkey lights too. :P

That wasn't drawn very well, but the idea was to have them just fold out like some acoustic guitar stands work. The full length of the pack itself has a double legged section on the back that just simply hinges out about a foot or so.



Sounds pretty sweet to me. So if you have a rotatey radar, you should have blinkey lights too. :P

I'm planning on having an LED strand across the top of the "T" on the back, where the upper plexiglass door will be, similar to RepCom helmet visors, to illuminate the tool compartment.

And some other lights for control panels and such, of course :P

Nice art work. Looks like a cool design. BUILD IT, BUILD IT, BUILD IT, BUILD IT.... (chanting/table pounding draws looks from everywhere in the room)  oops,  :-[

It's a really neat design. For a stand, would it be easier to run a length of 1x6 or 7/16" plywood down the spine of the pack, hinged at the top? Might be a little less complicated?

Hope that made sense, can't wait to see where you go from here!

I know! I just don't have to time or the resources to do anything other than doodles right now.

Plus I find it extremely hard to work on any type of building materials in my cold garage in the winter...

Someone, I beleive it is Igloo, makes a drum shaped cooloer that has fold out telescopis legs that create a stand for the cooler.

Nope not Igloo but here is a link to a retailer that has an image.

That's an idea I hadn't considered, but if I were to go that route I could just tear apart a cheap camera tri-pod.

Hey, Ghostbusting is some hard work!
I've been going between school and work mostly...but when I do get free time I don't have the money to buy parts to work on Mando stuff. Or I would. So to do something I troop with 501st or NWIGB.

That's my point lol.
