Battlefront jet pack (new greeblie pg 6)
« on: Jul 13, 2015, 02:19 AM »
Well here I am again, this time I am starting on my jet pack, and as the title suggests I am going to be making the pack from the new battlefront game

Here is the first photo I grabbed of the pack, I have another from the E3 Hoth video that has a slightly different angle that I am using for most of my work. so, without further ado, here is my progress so far

started with the front and back sections

began taping to see how it would all go together

and this is where it sits as of now, glue drying and ready for the recessed part to be cut and glued in place. Now I need some help identifying the greeblie circled in the picture below

I know I've seen something similar to this somewhere, but I don't know where  :'(

Looks kind of like the backs of these construction lamps:

haha, just spotted your's vod, what a coincidence, huh?  :laugh: can't wait to see your's progress too!
Well I have made quite a bit of progress on this thing, however I have gotten increasingly bad at taking progress photos lol



As I was writing this I noticed a glaring mistake on that bottom-most section you see in the last pic. The outside corners of it should be at an angle and I made them square, so now I have to fix that while it is glued on  :'( and a few other things on the reference photos that Ka'len posted that I am debating on weather I will fix or not

Still looking great, mate! It looks good to me aside from needing a rounded corner.

thanks for the help ConDar! I even spotted how you attached the pack to your back, I might have to steal that idea too if that's good with you ;D
More progress!


bondo! so while that is sitting outside drying, I decided to cut out those little 'fins' (I guess that what they are called, the heat-sink thingy)

I foresee loads of sanding in my future :laugh:

Thanks Havelock!  ;D I really appreciate the words of encouragement! And that's good to know ConDar, thanks again!
Well I spent some time sanding it today before this strange clear substance started falling from the sky and drove me inside  :laugh: here's how far I got




I still have a ways to go, and more spot filler to use, but it is coming along!

Use Just the Box , then Cut the Fins out of Foam or Sintra .... I opted for the Craft foam .. they Do a good Job
of Taking up the shape of the Surface when Glued then Having to Sand and Fill the Void normally left in a Job like this ....




Then you Can add any Greeblies that You may Want ... I used nylon & Metal washers Stacked & Glued  ... You Can paint these
  a Contrasting Color first and then glue them to make life easier  .. ;)

Thanks again everybody! Now this is a big update (at least it is to me, as this took all day  :laugh: ) It began with four of those fins being glued on with two part epoxy (I didn't trust E6000 for this job)


and I let the two inner ones dry for a good hour before moving on and this is why

in order to keep the fins spaced correctly I had to use temporary spacers and lightly push against the previous fin and hold it for about five minutes while the epoxy cured (thank the maker for music  :P ) so after doing that a total of eight times you end up with this



now if you think that the space in the middle looks a little bigger than the rest of them you would be correct. I worked from the ends inward in case this would happen, thankfully, to me, it is not totally noticeable
OH, I nearly forgot, I also started on the nozzles

I took the template for these from the Boba Fett jetpack template
