Title: Scratch Build Fett Style Jetpack
Post by: Trepp Fett on Aug 13, 2013, 10:02 PM
Hey Vode!
This past weekend i started a scratch build of the Fett style jetpack.The materials Im using on the main body are MDF,hardboard and
.020" sheet aluminum.
Im not really sure yet how I will build the rocket but i have some ideas.
Thanks for the look

Even still, once it's all built, filled and painted. There's going to be some weight. Just don't do yourself an injury ;) .

O plz, mines 20gauge stainless steel and it weighs only 25or so pounds without the batteries, hydration bladder, and eventual cooling system.


Unless you have back problems weight won't be an issue.

Yup, looks good :)
I was digging through the jp posts for strap ideas and came across a post by Scorlord, http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=20746.0
If you can suss the materials used for the rocket, it looks pretty good.
