how to jump packs

Were going to have a look at a simple little way to make your jump troops look a bit more realistic.
So here's a little walk through for anyone who is interested.

take a base & a paper clip drill two little holes a few mm apart.

a marine with a jump pack remove the marine from the bas& drill two little holes in the jump pack

next straighten  out the clip & fold it in half then put the two ends through the holes  putting a little bit of super glue on the under side. 

 put a slight bend (45%) about 10mm from the ends of the clip & then test it by stick the ends into the holes in the jump pack.
 now take a a tree & cut some of the little pieces of it as seen above & fix them to the clips a small little bit of painters caulk on the wires is great for fixing them

 now spray it black & then after a minute or two spray with a little white so it should then look like this
 now just add marine tip don't glue the marine on for ease of transport
 & that folks is that one jumping marine hope this helps.
