Thanks! Yeah I was mostly thinking of using a Jt12 rocket that I got from Eternal Armory that I used on my first jetpack build and possibly doing those type thrusters as it seems easier to install as well as pack in my case. Plus adding a few switches that light up besides the beacon. I really like your use of the Mustang belt as I am a mustang fanatic ( I've owned a 66, 86, 88, two 97s, and a 2005)

No problem, your plan sounds good. I've been into Mustangs since I was 16 and got a '70 MACH 1 in '84.  I've had a bunch in the past. I got out of it when I met my now wife in '89 and I got back into in '07. We now have a '65 coupe that I'm redoing for the wife and I have a '99 GT that we have had for 10 years now.

I had a mid life crisis at turning 40 and I sold this and all of my Boba Fett helmets and other props to help buy it..

After 6 days of construction, I've finally finished the main body. I'll do one last light sand and spray with primer/filler, then I'll start the paint job. Thrusters and tops will be 3d printed. Still need to figure out the rocket base and a method of attachment so that its removable. I'm thinking neodymium magnets like my armor



Edit*

Got a lot of work done last night and this morning, pack is basically done, waiting to print some smaller items like the end caps, thrusters and beacons




cut a access hatch in the back for electronics and strapping system

Added some fuel tank caps and an ESB decal to the left side. Also changed the middle  section to be green like i had originally planned.


I have a few 3d printed parts coming in from Shapeways. What is a good way to install the rocket so that is removable? I tested magnets, but it was a bit wobbly that way.

Impressive, most impressive!!
Here is how I mounted my rocket and thrusters. Large bolts with matching washers and wing nuts for easier removal for transport.

Got a 3d printed beacon and stabilizer installed. Also installed a Jetpack Missile collar from shapeways. Im using a flexible led pen light for the beacon light right now. Attached the rocket using the method from Lynn

I also picked up a 3D printer!

Finished the Jet pack

3d printed exhausts


Found these at Home depot for 8 bucks and replaced the pen light. These run off of 3 AAs. Can do always on, flash, and fade/pulse. I cut off the other LEDs and Im just running one

Looking good! Did you print them on your printer? If so, how is it cost wise for materials versus getting things on Shapeways?

MUCH CHEAPER, lol. So far with a 25 buck spool of ABS Ive printed what would have cost me about 115 from shapeways
