Propulsion pack/air tank combo
« on: Jan 18, 2021, 10:05 PM »
Good evening vode! I've been working on a propulsion pack/ air tank for the brigades and I realized that I never actually posted the new pack here. I was hoping to possibly get some insight/suggestions on what to do for the straps themselves.

My clan mate Jo'ah Anooba designed and 3D printed this amazing pack for me, which combines a propulsion thruster system and an air tank all in one.

The hose is a gask mask hose I found on ebay and connected it to some pvc pipe pieces. The respirator is from Demon Dog Studios, and so is the helmet. They did a fantastic job bringing this helmet to life! *shameless plug*

I am, however, having trouble deciding what to do with the harness straps for the pack itself. The straps are made out of nylon webbing, very thick and durable, but due to their width I had to trim them a bit so they wouldn't dig into my arm pits while in kit. I used a lighter to burn and melt the edges so it wouldn't fray. I added some twine to strengthen the straps but now I'm perplexed as to what I can do to make this look more swarzy.









Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

You don't need to cover them up, but if you wanted you could add some things to them. I'm thinking you could add some extra gear, like a vertical sheath knife, some grenades, something like that, or maybe something like a rank rope, wookie braids, or some shark teeth on a cord, like jedi crystals, which would probably cover an aquatic trophy for brigades.
