Title: military "Ruck" sack
Post by: SkyHawk024 on Apr 19, 2012, 09:00 PM
i happen to own a military "Ruck" sack and was wondering if i could use it to make a jet pack.

You wouldn't be able to use it for a jetpack, they're solid packs. But, you could turn it into an Rebel Soldiers Endor style pack.

I had been thinking about using one of these frames to mount my jetpack but never found one.
I think it would work well if you are able to incorporate it into the design. You will probably have to hide the straps, maybe under the vest or replace them with leather that could be made to look like ammo/pouch belts or something in-universe.
This is just my opinion always check with the approval team.
Good luck Vod, can't wait to see how it comes out.

You can build on the frame no problem. I thought you meant using the whole thing. But yes, you can use the frame as a base.
