CrookKnight's Battlefront Jump Pack Build

Recommended Posts

I am beginning the Jump Pack Build

My thought process here is to use PVC Foam Board for the creation of the prototype. From there, I will be able to create molds for Vac-Forming and/or 3D printing.

The prototype will be built in white and a second one will be constructed in black. I personally want a black one, since I am slowly building a Shadow Trooper.

It is not my intention to take this project over from anyone, I just currently have the time to be able to work on this.

Please feel free to comment on this thread as much as you want. I am sure there will be some trial and error (just like with the Magma (Sullust) Trooper pack).

Here are some additional reference pictures I am using. It appears there are at least 3 types of Jump Packs:


1. Shadow Trooper Jump Pack - Black

2. Storm Trooper Jump Pack - White

3. Rebel jump Pack - Green - the pack itself is different. (Obviously I will not be building this one).

I was able to spend a little time on the Jump Pack, last night. Below are some of the photos. First, I am constructing this via 2D, then I will add the depth and make it 3 dimensional. Then all of the detail work...


By the way, I am posting all of these pictures from Facebook instead of Photobucket. (Much easier).

Latest progress on the Jump Pack.

Almost done with the face of the pack. Remaining PVC should be in this week, so I can build sides and back. Still alot of details to work on. Need to find someone who can help me with metal thrusters on the sides and the heat shields.

Thanks Tony, you are the master of all builds.


A quick update on the pack. I am getting a model of the thrusters from a gentlemen who makes Boba Fett packs (I will add his name here). Should have those in about 2 weeks.


I finally got my forming putty in so I can finish the look of the pack, add the detail, and smooth out the corners.


Once that is complete, I will be looking at vacforming this pack in parts so I can make them faster and this kind of pack will look great using this method.

I finally got the thrusters in. Now we are designing this in 3D in order to get it as accurate as possible. Once complete, I will print the first one in PLA. Should come out similar to my Spacetrooper Pack. Lightweight and durable.


Below is a quick look at the 3D file. We still have some work to do on it.
