I feel sorry for anyone who spends the $600 for that kit. I've heard a lot of bad reviews on it for the price they are asking, things like cheap Halloween store plastic with nylon straps.

it realy is as bad as the reviews, but there are several salvageable parts to it... the bucket is fairly decent, the gaunts aren't half bad, and the jetpack... well although it's less than spectacular.... is a great stand in for a $300 fiberglass.

Update: spent today re-working a couple spots on the bottom of the pack where the bondo had split... once I was satisfied with the patch job I re primed and began the process of aplying my base. as you can see my base is gray, This is will be a Jodo Kast Pack so ther's several other colors to come.






I also worked on the rocket today, sanding down the poorly done seams and filling with bondo (love that stuff!) once I was satisfied with my work, I primed, silver coated, and applied my base gray. it's not purfect, and it has a permanent wonk to it... but it's better :D

I'm so glad you got this from Kibiri.  You're showing some great work there bro.

update... got some paint on it... not purfect, but I can work with it, via weathering... and no... the rocket isn't attached, just set ontop.

...and then another layer of paint to the pack today makes it look just a little better still...

Keep up the good work.  Glad to see some lemonade coming from that lemon!
