if your pack is not too heavy, just use a simple webbing harness like i did. Basically over and under your shoulders and round your chest. i had no problems with mine over a full day. but make sure you pad the shoulder straps. i didn't and it dug in.  ;)

You know that Hasbro Build your own Lightsaber toy set that came about 3 years ago? That is supposed to be the Lightsaber Emitter for Darth Maul's Lightsaber  ;D
Realizing that I still had it laying around, I kept it around after having for a while

Unable to find anything to fill the expose areas, I lucklily found the blade that came with it, cut it the emitter's length and I painted it silver

Good news Guys, just got a new phone with a better camera.

So here's my missile and my missile going on my jetpack




From an old battery powered lantern I found a round piece that can fit on bottom of the missile, with my industrial glue gun, I sealed the bottom of the missile with glue.

That copper pipping is for sticking my missile into the open hole that is slightly larger than the pipe. This is so I can take off my missile and put it back on guranteed that it won't fall off if moved around a bit.





The only thing now is...What in the world would this missile be? Anti-vehicle? A concussion missile? A Cluster missile? A Home-made Diamond boron missile?

I've also got one of those jetpacks. For the last six months it's sat in my shop because I've had no motivation to tackle all the errors in it's design. Good job fixing this up, and nice work on the missile!

Here's a full body shot of my pack



(That is aluminum tape on the bottom, the only bug I've been trying to fix is the jetpack nozzles falling off. The Good news is, they are no longer falling off and yes, thats kitty doo doo at the bottom right)

Thank you  ;D

I can pretty much tell you the errors this pack nearly ripped all my hair out in frustration.

Hey Everyone, I just posted an interest thread.

The link is Here

I did say I can make more of these Jetpacks, but out of Sintra this time, rather than Cardboard plastic.

Alright chaps, I just about to put some final touches to my harness....



Any idea how I'm going to attach clips on my Jetpack? My back plate is made of 6mm Sintra



edit: Oh, about the full pic of my pack, I painted the Aluminim tape...
