My Mandalorian Protector jet pack (WIP)
« on: Jan 12, 2016, 07:13 PM »
Here it is, my custom MOW jet pack. Jango arena fuselage with classic pack parts.


Here are the only visible "defects" that I can see from the mold degradation of the arena pack MOW mentions in his add.


Too be honest, I may not even bother filling them in, why bother? It is not bad, no pin holes and no one will notice when the paint is on and it adds "age" to the jet pack.
Pour holes in the back will need to be taken care of.

A little surface texture needs to be sanded down and some red glaze putty will make fast work of this.


Overall I think this in an awesome pack and is a far step ahead of my old Richies Armor fiberglass jet pack that I had BITD.

I got my attachments done for the rocket and thrusters.
1/2" threaded rod and accompanying hard ware for rocket.


The thrusters got 1" PVC pipe spacers, 1 1/4" washers and 5/16th hardware all pressure fit only and holds tight. The thrusters can move if needed.

Rocket and thrusters are complete.


A little homage to the comics for those you who are wondering why I went with a purple rocket and is in keeping with my Mandalorian protector theme.

Jet pack sanded down, red spot glaze puttied, first color put down, all holes drilled for appropriate greeblies and harness attachment.
I got a '65 Mustang seat belt that I will be using for the lower harness point.
I got Shape ways piano keys for the Jet pack since they are missing on the Jango packs, they look pretty good on the pack.

Main fuselage is now painted the main colors.
Weathering has been started, and greeblie detailing will begin.


Weathered up and most greeblies added.




Waiting for final details to come in the mail and I will try my hand at wiring up a LED for my light beacon.

I'm just about done with the jet pack. The light beacon is lite and I'm waiting on some more final details to arrive in mail.


Still figuring out on how I want to attach it to the harness.

Thanks!!

The jet pack is finally detailed and done.


I got the lower JP harness belt on.

Since we are restoring a '65 Mustang and I just got done working on the interior in the fall, I felt the '65 Mustang seat belts looked really fitting for the pack so I got another one and used it for the lower attachment. It is simple quick click belt that works great

Since my upper harness attachment idea failed miserably I got new accurate ones coming for it that will be 10 yo boy friendly to attach.
