Custom Kit WIP: JETPACK

The Jetpack is a custom design and will feature two large fuel cells in the center.  These fuels cells will also supply the Gauntlet mounted flame throwers. Combustion chambers will sit on the outer sides of the fuel cells and slightly offset from the Fell cells. Thrusters will then attach to the lower outer edge of the combustion chamber (similar to Boba Fett).


I'm using 4" PVC for the fuel Cells and 3" PVC for the combustion chambers. 3mm Sintra will be used for as much of the flat surfaces as I can. Any of the intricate parts will be 3D printed. Ill add hoses and greeblies as needed.

Here is the concept for the body of the jetpack (fuel cells and combustion chambers)

Made some progress on this. The basic structure is all together, and some of the parts are printed.
