(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Here is the main structure of the new Fett Boy. The rocket is about half an inch over scale.I used a plastic cone that I built a long time ago but never flew. It fits the 3" tubing and also mates nicely with the tube that telescopes over the main body. I wanted to use the telescoping tube so I don't have to attach the backpack and arms onto the body of the rocket.I have also accumulated/fabricated most of the parts for the jet/rocket pack. I still need the top of the fuel tanks and a maybe some nozzles.This is yet another 'use what you got' build and I think I may squeak by without buying any new paint. The paint I have isn't exactly what I would have chosen had I bought all new stuff. If what I have doesn't look OK to me, I will buy a few bottles of Testor's brush on paint.
