My First Jetpack.....
« on: Apr 08, 2012, 09:47 PM »
Hello, I finally started  my first build & have been reading a lot of post here, one post by Zohar Nef  on his jet pack really stuck... then today when I went "jetpack parts" shopping I saw this.


It was a whopping 6 dollars at big lots...so it begins...

Wow Madak!  This is why I love MMCC, you've got folks willing to go all out to make scratch built props, and then folks that run out into their communities and get found stuff that looks great!!  Excellent find! ;)

Thanks, I haven't done much with the pack this week, I've been working on the blasters. I plan to have some more pics of this "further along" this upcoming week

This is gonna be a fun build! I do the same when it comes to gathering parts for my blasters.

My personal rule of Star Wars building: Anything can be used, if used properly.  ;)
