Ok work on this hit a bit of a stand still as other things in life took priority.  But today imbetween bouts of heavy cleaning I managed to get started on the paint for this thing.  Still got to do detail work on it but so far it is looking realy nice.  Let me know what you think.

And did a little flat black on the nozzels to make it look like they had been used.

  Great, innovative work, and I like your attention to detail with the nozzles.  How will you wear it?  Cross-straps, backpack-style straps, or something else?

Seriously though, I think I'm gonna take this idea, if you don't mind.
I'm interested in making a jump pack, so this is perfect!
Looks great!

Looks amazing!!!! really nice idea and job! one word of caution tho. I added thin plastic pieces to my TD backpack once (I believe it was a granola container from costco - it had a great "vent-like" bottom - painted black it look great) It was a troop I didn't need the backpack for, so I left it in the car. The sun warped and melted it beyond recognition. Keep it cool or the thin plastic pieces will warp and any hot glue will melt.

okay so I'm stupid ;P

I am very glad you mentioned that as I had not considered it.  After reading your post I realized hot glue was the only thing holding the thrusters together.  Then i thought of the solution fill it with foam.  Went to the hardware store and they had the expanding spray for can on clearence for $3 so I bought 3 and used one to fill in the thrusters.  Presently i am in the clean up stages of that endever.  Wish I had done it earlier.

So during the move into my new home(house) my pack experinced some damage.  the foam I had hoped would keepit from deforming in say the heat of a car did just that.  But it also expanded more since I guess it hadn't completely cured and burst the softened hotglue joints pretty much knocking the thrusters off it(suck).  So after that I began searching for a new set of thrusters for my pack.  At work for 2.50 I found these beauties,

A pair of them and some cutting later I had this for my new thrusters.(forgive the tanks on them they screw off, left them on so they would sit right for the pic)
 
Still need a bit of work to get them on permanently and then soe paint and hopefully these will be better then the last set.
