I Hate Jetpacks (COMPLETE 5/25/13)
« on: May 04, 2013, 10:18 PM »
So, some of you may be familiar with my other post in this section entitled  "I hate Backpacks".  Well, as many know, I finished my backpack and, since it didn't fit in with my concept, I decided to pass it on to someone who could have some fun with it.  ( I hope they are doing well.)

Well, I was in Goodwill today, and came across something that was quite surprising.  Of course it screamed "Make me into a jetpack!"  So, I spent the $3.00 and bought it.   Along with a couple of shower heads for an additional 6 bucks.  I have no pics of the actual items as of yet, but here is the blue version of the item.

I give you, the Shield Blaster Shield 3000!




Hopefully in the weeks to come (or months) there will be some work done on it.  But for now, I'm juggling graveyard shift, a new helmet and building a new goat shed.  So...  busy busy....

Comments are welcome as always!

Well, I have begun the tear down portion of my build and have decided to go without the tubes.  Also, I kinda got lucky with another Goodwill find and will be adding a very cool metal hose to the mix.  It's slowly taking shape.

I really need to find my camera.  I have the bottom portion mainly complete.  I ended up cutting the bottoms out and inserting the "nozzles".  It turned out far better than I hoped.  Yeah, yeah, no pictures, it didn't happen.  I'm working on that.

Well, since jetpacks are not within the scope of my kit, this is being created for the fun of it.  So, when it is complete, and people are interested, I will be adding it to the sale thread.  Most people have seen my work and know I do pretty good.  So keep an eye out.

And....  had I batteries for my camera, I would have pics of it, but alas, I do not. So stay tuned folks!

Looks like a good base for a Cody style jetpack

Well... Got er done.

Things to keep in mind. This kit is designed to be sold.  So even though it is painted, weathering and distressing are kept to a minimum to allow the buyer to paint as they see fit.  Also, the jetpack can be fully disassembled in order to facilitate easy customization, addition and or subtraction.
