I like the boots! Where did they come from?
Thanks! :) These are Cycle Spirit biker boots. Got'em pretty cheap at a second-hand shop.

4 months between posts isn't considered a double post, however it might be considered necro posting unless as in your cases here there's a relevant update as this one you've posted here.
Congrats and welcome to the next level!

Thank you, thank you :)
Still waiting for my killstripes, though... BUT! I know the App-Team is pretty busy right now, so I don't complain.
In the meantime - some app pictures for your viewing pleasure ;)

Oh mate! Just remember if you "hit the road" it doesn't mean you actually need to start punching it! ;)

So what's next you're working on?

Thanks, I'll try to remember that :P
As for what's next... I've got this one small secret project that I'm working on in my spare time but I feel this need... to build something new from scratch... but this time something canon. But definitely not Fett, there's too much of them ;) I have that particular someone in mind but can't go into details just yet ;)

Thanks :) it's been a long road (12 years, taking my first drawings into account, hehe) but it's great to have killstripes :) Now it's time to earn some awards ;)

Double posting but with a relevant update :)
Back in july/august I had corrective eye surgery, which meant 3 weeks of sitting at home. Once I could be more mobile I got back to my abandoned project - jetpack!
Below is my attempt at WOF templates. I do realize that it's far from perfect, it's a bit crooked on the right side but it's mine and I love it. I know what I did wrong, so if I ever make another one, I should be more aware of the build.

^Rough jetpack shape.


^How to make thrusters using sprinklers and plumbing rotating elbow joint-thing


^scratch-built thruster nozzles

^first test-fit

^Next step - filling everything with expanding foam. It works wonders and has pretty good adhesive properties.

^ Trimming. At this point I realized that the foam itself is not the best idea for the top part. Needed something different:

^ Decided to go with ribs...

...which made the next step easier

Expanding foam part 2. Much better.

^Now it kinda resembles a jetpack...

^Arguably the best looking and best measured and made part in my jetpack. Probably because it's lathed ;)

^How it all sits together so far

Thanks for reading!

Doesn't count as double posting Vod, you had nearly a month between posts.

Jetpack is looking fantastic too. I'll be joining the group of pack wearing ninjas here soon myself as after two years I have one I'm working on. What are the orange plastic bottles and where did you find rotating pipe joints?

I also remember it's not necro-posting ;)
Do you have any pictures of your jetpack wip? ;) I'd love to see it :)
As for your questions: orange bottles are trigger spray bottles, like this one but better shaped ;):

And I found rotating pipe joint at home improvement store, plumbing section. I don't even know what it's called in Polish, so sorry if I can't help much ;)

I haven't started. WIP thread yet since I just got it this week and I'm 3D printing pieces that I want upgraded from what the modeler sent me. My OCD is gonna rule my build so I've got a bit to do before I start my WIP.

Happy are those who are smart enough that can design their own stuff and have access to a 3D printer so they can make their designs a reality ;)

Hehe thanks :) This one is build using WOF's plans but I might do another jetpack using Pepakura, just need to find the right one. If I find one, I can send you the file xD

Update time:

^Primer

^Montana Silvercrome base

Hopefully sometime around weekend I'll have it painted in full. Need to get it done before winter because then my basement becomes less spray-friendly.
