Jetpack planning/WIP
« on: Oct 15, 2015, 06:26 PM »
I very recently acquired some PVC pipe segments today and decided to mock up a jetpack.



Originally I wanted to have a small jump pack on a melee-based kit, but I might just work with these for the time being to at least have something.

For the nozzles I plan on using the giant orange muzzle piece from the "Automatic Tommy 20" foam dart blaster (non-Nerf brand) as seen below.  I have one and a friend of mine has another that he said I could have.

size looks okay, nozzles may have to be filled in some area's looks a little too "toy-ish" for my liking but overall good base,

are you going to make a frame for the pvc tubesfor the jetpack?

my first jetpack i made from scratch (PVC and Sintra) failed horribly, so i wish you luck sir!

looking forward to seeing more progress shots

I don't have any set-in-stone plans for this yet, I just happened to get some scrap pipe segments from work and thought I'd try to use them as the base for a jetpack.  I'd definitely sculpt the shape more, to make it look less like some pipes taped together (this is only a mock-up) and more like a cohesive pack.  There will definitely be a more solid structure to it than duct tape. :P  And yeah, the nozzles will be getting some filling and modifying if I use them.
