Tact Kor - Jetpack
« on: Aug 06, 2013, 10:02 AM »
Hello

I just realized that only OM can see the brigade builds so I thought I would post my Jetpack here. I am really happy with how this is coming along;

It took a while to decide what kit to order but I decided on NME props, the kit is well priced and Marcus did a great job of preping it, I had almost nothing to fix, just put it together and voila!



Here is it with the base silvers.



I decided to use the K-Mart edtion Jodo Kast as for the color scheme, here is what his JP looks like;



Here it is with the yellow;



After the yellow I realised that I would need to apply the paint a bit differently than the toy as the lines wouldn't look right so here is what I came up with;



Now I need to add some stripes on the top canisters, the beacon etc. and I will use the same symbols as the ROTJ JP.

Cheers

 I'm looking forward to seeing yours get built, I will be posting some photos on my harness and attachement method in the next couple weeks I've got little league playoffs right now so not much time to work on this  :(

Here is what I got done over the weekend;

Using a back pack with chest and waist straps for my harness;



Cut down a heavy duty wall hanger to create the upper Jp hangers along with straps that have rings sewn on the ends that will attach to the harness later;



I cut out the back plate trap door for access to attach the hooks and will be trying to use a PVC pipe to attach the thrusters...



and here is where I am at with the painting for now;



Any suggestions on how to attach the trusters so that they are removable is appreciated.

Thanks

You could counter sink the head of a bolt into the thruster post, fix it in with some epoxy, drill a hole in the port in the body of the pack and use a wingnut to hold it on. There is always the magnet route as well.
