Title: WIP for Ratiin Verburyc
Post by: Cowboy_KenFL on Sep 12, 2018, 04:04 PM
Good day Vodes!

Working on my kit. Double checking the CRL's, other folks kits and...

Here's my start to hopefully a weapons and breather pack...

Found a lid to a self-cooling cooler. It looks like it still might be operational. Sweet! A/C for me! Once I figure out how to power it. LOL

In the image above, I've got some greeblie things already gathered.

Not sure which to make top or bottom. Guess it depends on if it works or not.

It looks to take up the requested 2/3 of my back. Especially, once I pimp it out with some weapons storage.  I'm thinking a modified rocket holder or a mount for a Z-6, on one side. Maybe a large blade or axe holder on the other.

Here's a head on shot of it, with cover on.

Yes, my room is messy. Wash day.  :P
Yes, I'm looking into straps and something to mount it on.

What are y'alls thoughts/suggestions?

Thank you God! It powers up!! Cooling air for this Mando!
Once I figure out powering it with batteries,  not the size of a car battery.  :o

Jett- Yes, I'll mount it to a backplate. I'll modify the plate to be open against my back/flak vest; and have some airducts to move the cool air. Maybe even use that area to cool the batteries used to power it.

I'd be willing to bet you can convert a large power bank for charging cell phones into a functional battery for it but I'm not really sure.

Thanks Fabled, for the idea. I'll check into it.

Did a quick idea on layout for my Power/ weapons pack.
Thoughts?

I'm trying to put in a "modernized" version of Baze's pack and cannon from Rogue One. Ya know, company kept developing, researching, etc.

Hopefully, y'all can make out my labeling... lol

Maybe a higher power airsoft battery?

Nimrodt- Looking at it, with that in mind. I suppose it does.

Ritpak and Novoc- thanks for the ideas for power source.
