    Well, I have had Westies14 production stunt jet pack for a year or so.. been planning how to tackle this and get some screen accurate material from hero packs.

    So I am finally making a scratch mold of the stunt pack and will be remastering the resulting cast to include details from the hero rocketpacks. I'll be replacing the missing fins to match the remaining ones, remastering the vents to match the hero with its "shelf," and completing the engines to include the section behind those vents.

    This pack is a production piece, but I've always wanted a hero version to display. It will have this precise, perfect hull, the bits people can miss like the radiator fins "welded" to the nosecones. I will add extra details from the hero packs - the additional rivets and scribed lines, possibly a kit to have the perforated grill with two mini XLR jacks and an A/C jack, as the hero packs were different scene to scene.

    I will even be recreating the hero harness in leather, making the glove/gauntlet activator. Westies14 sent me the proper vintage airbrush compressor fan, and I was able to source a matching hardware part for the replicas.

    I will estimate the jet pack itself would be $1000-1200usd + shipping depending on pieces I will include in the kit, and cost of things like correct fans, rods, flaps etc..

    The harness will be somewhere in the $400-600usd + shipping this will depend on leather cost and work involved as well as getting some screen accurate buckles done up :)

    The glove activator price tbd depending on how much source I can get so I can make it as accurate as possible too.

    Please post interest in Pack, harness, activator or all three below.

    Here's the stunt hull, ready for molding:

    Oh and just to add.. I am working on getting a scan of a certain production helmet..so that might be a thing :)

    Also this will be a limited run if there is enough interest to get them made.

    On the list
    On the list.. I hope the helmet happens :)
    On the list.. I will try and figure out prices soon.. sourcing materials still
    Great :) on the list
    Good idea :)
    Ok I will put you on the list for the pack right now.. prices will stay within the posted estimates
    On the list
    I would think deposits within the month..for the pack at least.. and it would be another month..ish to get it ready for casting.. I dont want to rush this, but I do want it to be done fairly soon :) And for limit, right now I would say between 10-15 total packages.
    On the list
    No idea about MIM.. its a completely different kind of prop though.. sculpted from pictures. This is a production made piece I am adding hero pieces to. For the Harness, there is no guarantee it would fit your pack unless it has screen accurate measuremtns?
    As above.. depeosits within the month and casting a month after that.. estimated. So I would say 7-10 weeks to be safe :)
    On the list ;)

    Ok I just wanted to let everyone know I molded the pack and took a first cast to clean out the mold. I'll cast a few more and start working on making them nice and detailed just like the hero packs :). Here's a pic of the cast that came out today.

    Thanks
    Possibly a 3D print in metal, or cold cast, I want them to function though. Metal ones would probably cost far too much. And they will be as close to screen accurate as possible. Unless you have access to real ones I could mold off of? I have never seen the bigger buckle for sale anywhere.

    Is there going to be an option to have this cast in cold cast aluminum, or would that price be ridiculous?

    Thanks :) just a cast to work on.. make it pretty :)
    I suppose I could, I would need a min number of people for that, and it would add to the cost.. I will see what it would take and figure out a price before I start taking deposits
    On the list :)
    Actually it wouldnt, the screen used packs were never plated. Just painted. And there was at least 1 full metal pack.. but that is again different than all the other packs.

    Yup, understood. I'm exploring this for a personal build. Sorry personal preference. I was just reacting to the idea of cold cast al vs plating on weight and expense. Although electo plating isn't exactly cheap either. All can be achieved with a decent paint job also. ;)

    Ahh ok, I am going for accuracy.. but I dont have you on my list..
    I'm not sure what details your asking for? I will be going for accuracey here too.. matching the material and pattern as close as I can, from the stunt harness and pictures of the production packs

    Yup my pack is slightly idealized on finish. I'm for hyper-accuracy also. I guess when you get to working on the harness I might be interested in a harness only. I understand the actual latch is a difficult part to come across.

    Actually there were two hero packs that had a thin metal outer layer - they coated the inside of the mold using a technique called "arc spraying" which deposited a very thin layer of zinc that they then backed with fiberglass.

    The full metal packs (apparently they made three) were used for the practical flame effects.

    I did not know that :) but that wouldn't come out like chrome.. which is what everyone thinks they did..chrome plate it. I would just be offering up the resin casts.. not "arc spraying" :) but that would be interesting to see. And yes the all metal ones open up, panels can be taken off etc..
    I will mark you down.. still not sure about the cold casting. I will look into it.
