survival pack
« on: Jan 11, 2013, 02:43 PM »
within a few hours of finishing up my armor i started my backpack. it's based on the pack worn by the sandtroopers on tatooine. i tried to replicate as many of the parts as i could, even managed to find a online seller that had the same inner boxes used on the original props. i will post a list of the parts soon and the links for the parts and where top get them if you choose to build a similar pack.

now for the pictures:
here is the base frame:

the inner boxes mounted to the frame:

note that the frame has been bent using a heat gun and the boxes mounted using scrap sintra and rivets.
here are the outer boxes:

outer boxes mounted along with the plunger and pvc tubing:


i still need to finish up the radio box details and need to add a few more smaller parts. i appreciate any comments.

Looking goo so far. I've been interested in exploring other things besides jet-packs, so this is a refreshing turn.

I've been working on one myself for my Elite Novatrooper. I'd encourage different boxes on top of the seed trays. They look a lot like bins.

Here's a pack that was done by an old retired member years ago:





He had used a few boat battery boxes, plumbing, and hoses.

thanks for the photos taglar. looks like he used the studio creations tutorial. as for the bins on the top, the originals utilized tupperware boxes too:



and mine is based off of this one:

i'm not exactly sure what the corrugated part is made from but i'm going to use a pool filter i got at walmart.
