I'm a little jealous. I've only been stalking e-bay off and on for about 2 years looking for one of those packs.

I bought this from their website back in 2007.

Are you going to add anything to it to make it more jump/Jet pack like or is it going to get a repaint and slapped to your backplate?

Have a good one,
Hagen

"An assassin may use a jetpack or jump pack, but it should be of a streamlined design, not bulky."

With that in mind, I'm going to keep it basically the same.  I will add thrusters to it for a "jump" pack purpose.  The back will remain closed as I will have a camel back inside it.

I think it needs *some* greeblies. Buttons, LEDs, switches, nothing over-the-top and no big sticky-out bits (like missiles) but it's a very plain design.

That's a really cool idea! The tube will help make it look like your pack is linked to your helmet and no one would be the wiser ;)

instead of adding little vectored thrust cones or whatever, I suggest adding two vents to the bottom diagonal surfaces of the jetpack, and maybe running some leds or el behind them so they light up.

Definitely. Well, mostly: While a big fan of glowies, I'd actually stay away from adding too much in the way of light, as it's supposed to be a stealth setup.

Just scored one of these packs for my assassin. I just hope it's not too large.
