WIP Jetpack build
« on: Mar 24, 2015, 10:45 AM »
Figured I'd post progress on this! Working on a jetpack pepakura using Firefeks model.

After the long cutting process I was finally able to start scoring each piece



Dinking with a few lil bits



Which turned into alotta bits



and even more



One side done-ish



and, finally the point I'm at now.



Hoping I can finish the full assembly this morning then slowly start coating it in resin.

Then the real work commences!

Quick testfit aswell. Some jetpack noises were made.



Now I can start smoothing and rounding some of the hard edges before laying glass inside.

Thanks vode! I'm still toying with that idea myself. I may use an old camelbak and harness that I can hide under all my gear. That way I can actually have my hydration carrier hidden inside the jetpack.

Have a few different ideas I'm toying with including maybe a 2nd backplate to run with this one.
