First of all, try spelling words rather than using numbers.  It gives people the impression you are serious about what you are doing.

Anyway, you could try using 2 or 3 litre bottles as the base.  It would give that nice oblong appearance.  Face them down and attach them to a center object.  Use your imagination for what that could be.  You can then attach the "thrust" nozzles to the bottoms.  Hopefully this could give you an idea as to a direction to head.

FInd some sort of medium sized hard shell backpack, get and attach 2 of the largest litre soda bottles you can to the sides of the pack, buy 2 mini desk fans and use those as well. Good luck

I have just the Tanks for this ...... They are a Super soaker 2000 or similar tanks .

I pick it up at Goodwill for $1.50 ..... but they are everywhere pretty cheap .

Problem is , these are mine for another pack I'm building .... but anyway that's what I'd use.  ;)

Good luck with your Build Vod  ......

 Got any Concept pics ? or are you winging it ?

Yeah, if you can get some concept images, no matter how bad you think you draw, we can give more specific ideas. Otherwise, we can all give you different thoughts.

But yeah, something with dual tanks would be good for a forced-ox system, just get a connection going from pack to bucket.

Long ago there was a SCUBA Mando by the name of Runi Ne'tra. He's since retired, but if I remember correctly he had a hard pack with tubes that attached to his helmet and long "fins" that ran the length of the pack and a few inches beyond. I tried searching his name, but nothing came up as far as a thread or anything of the sort.

It was actually a normal backplate with two car fender flares and two car mirrors attached together with a hose.  Not necessarily "scuba" but the curved "fins" do add a bit of a scuba look.

In some of the last clone wars episodes they had scuba clone troopers and stuff like that.....
I think there are some cool ideas in it!

I started a SCUBA Mando, but switched to a Ship-Captainish Mando. But for my Oxygen tank, I took a large, older vacuum with a removable canister, and took out the canister, and had 2 cardboard cylinders, but that's where I stopped. I got aggravated and built what I have now.
