MacGyver, yes! You should start carrying around peanut butter and pine cones. You might need to mike a tiny bomb to unlock/blast open a door at some point (and yes, that was in a real episode).  :P

I saw him weld with a Car battery, a pair of Jumper cables, 1 penny & 1 nickle ....  :laugh:
 I tried it ... it doesn't really work ..... :rolleyes: But it Could .... on another planet  ;)

A little update :

Added the Back Support Bracing .... :
Bass Wood Square Rod . $1.19 a piece at Michaels .
I bought 3 but I've only used 1 1/2 so far ...






I cut the Main Back panels .... : these are made from a Giant Art Clipboard .
Only .99 at the Thrift store School/art supply/Book Section ...  :P


Nice and thin , light weight , etc . It is also Durable and it sands/finishes well .
 It  takes drilling & Counter sinking pretty good to ... you just have to use
very Sharp tools .... Just a hint there ....  ;)

Thanks Bud .... it's not Real heavy at all ...  ;)
Think Remote Control Airplane Weight ... Roughly .. :-X
I'm Try to keep the Weight to a minimum , so I still believe it's Manageable .... at present ... :laugh:

My Vest Takes most of the Weight anyway ......  ;)



Got Some more Greeblies installed & started attaching the Thruster nozzles ..

No Muss No Fuss ..... I had Some Large Headed aluminum Screws . 1/4 20 I think ?
Cut directly across from the Hole supplied ... ;D  The PVC Tube is thick enough to catch
a few threads if you preheat a bit first .... but if your careful you can do it Cold as well .

I have some big Nylon Thumb turn nuts that came with the Screws so I could put them inside the
Tubes if I ever Strip them out .. Well See .... Here's where She's at .....  :rolleyes:

Thanks for the Support Mate ....  ;D

I like how this is Going So Far ...
 I think I'll Buy 4 more Ornaments tomorrow just for Spares .
 It seems that they are more Versatile than I first though . The Ends are quite thick
so it gives me a few options on Filling them with Foam ... We'll See .... :rolleyes:

Thanks For looking .....  8)

Well it looks great!   8)  Are you going to bondo the whole exterior, or just the seams?

Thanks , it's Coming along ..   ;D

I still have a Second layer of Bass Wood to do .... This will Close off
any gaps that you see in the Skeleton layer. I will miter the Corners and Bevel the Edges
back . This Should give a more Defined edge with a thicker base to add Damage later .

I will most likely Brush it in Resin a few Times then Bondo / Spot fill as needed ...

I'm Still Debating the Wiring & lights ..... Maybe at a Future Date ...  :rolleyes:

All I can say is 'wow.' And I agree with everyone above; you are the Mando MacGuyver. If I wasn't committed to making a Sirus thruster plate, I'd probably go for this.

I don't think a thruster plate and a jet pack would be compatible on the same kit. ;)
