This is looking so cool. It's nice to see a different jetpack than the Boba or Jango... Not that those are bad... but this is really great.

Thanks all!

Thanks vod! that is actually precisely why I wanted to do this pack, well that and it looked a little simpler than a boba jetpack build  :laugh:
Well, another day, more work completed! This time on what I call the 'main greeblie'

Keep in mind that none of the extra bits are glued on yet.
Now I did use a bit of a different method than you, ConDar. I had some spare wood from my blaster build that was the perfect thickness so I cut that and shaped it to have a slight slope on the sides. However, I did take your advise on the little bits that are on it and dug through my washers and pulled a few out that looked good

Now they are just placed on there at this point, and when I go to actually attach them I will probably fill in the holes that the bolts usually go through.

and a nice close up.
So that's it for today, I probably won't get much, if anything, done tomorrow, but I will be back at it in the next couple days  ;D

This is an amazing build, can't wait to see it all painted up!

You should send some pictures to Dice/EA when it's done, i'm sure the devs would love to see it in real life :)

And I'm back! made a little progress today, mainly with gluing, but first I made a discovery

I looked through my model kits that I won't build for one reason or another and pulled out this piece. and lo-and-behold it fits like a dream and look pretty darn cool! Anyway, back to what I have glued so far

I got those extra raised panels done, and right now the big greeblie is drying. And that's not all, I also made some progress on my nozzles

yep, not only did I find the right sized balls, I have already bondo'd them. Tomorrow will be sanding and figuring out how to attach them so the won't fall off, I have an idea that involve PVC pipe and a drill, the pipe is the right diameter for the pipe that holds the nozzles on the pack, so hopefully my plan will work. I've also been thinking about how I am going to attach it to my back, so stay tuned for that (that will mainly consist of me asking if it will work :laugh: )

Thanks Koran! I hadn't even considered that, it would be neat getting their input on how it looks  ;D

Love this build.

Could you post/link the templates or measurements for this?

I would post templates if I could, NeX, however I don't have any as this was all done by eyeballing/guessing the measurements as well as I could based on how it would fit on my body compared to the game. However I will whip up a few photos with my measurements, just give me a couple days and I will do my best ;D
Just a couple of extra photos for the day

glue has set and I am one happy Mando  :laugh:
Now I need a little more help, I've been staring at my reference photos endlessly and I am at a loss for one thing

Sometimes I see this (the circled area) as T or L track, sometimes I see it as a louver type setup, and sometimes I'm not sure what I see  :'(

It almost looks like you could use a plastic vent piece off of a dehumidifier or something.

The Vent thing looks a lot like the Gillette pro-glide Disposable Razor Holders ...  :rolleyes:
although I'm not Quite Sure of scale of your pack they may be too small .....
 I've Been saving Tons of them for Vents on other projects ...  ;)

Just sayin .... good luck with your Build , it's looking Great So far ..  ;D

That's a possibility, thanks for the idea!
Well here we go, more progress!
