My Jet pack for MONTROSS
« on: Aug 02, 2013, 02:28 PM »
Been working on the Pack along side the work on the helmet.

Now has swivel Thrusters and the rocket has a rod to insert into the Pack body.  Though it is a dry fit and may change to a metal rod. Thoughts.



Thrusters still need dremelling out


With rocket raised to show rod.

The Jet pack I bought from a friend and believe fellow member Heatshock.

"I got the body in trade.  Its vac formed plastic - I suspect HIPS and from fett gear in UK - but cannot comfirm.  The resin parts are Mr Bungle and some built by me."

Hope that helps.

Cool! I've found your JP WIP!

Looking good, do you have canister tops and bottoms?

LOl yep put appropriate parts in the right threads LOL

Thanks Tact Kor.

  I do indeed have the tops and bottoms but they are resin parts that need a lot of work.  So sort them and then tidy up body a little more and SPRAY job. Alas Montross seems to be mainly a Steel looking colour :/  Bland but Hey ho LOL

So currently on a dremel-fest to get them sorted.

Not sure if it is the best way But with family life first and fore most and kids off school. I do so much, helmet (almost done and ready for the spray job), just started armour and as said dremlling the top/bottoms for the JP.

Once these three are done, weapons then cloth and vest and finally accessories. Though always searching for appropriate parts to put aside for this :D
