Kit's jet pack for force hunter. almost finished.
« on: Aug 17, 2014, 07:50 PM »
So I started work on a jet-pack on Saturday. finished it on Monday. trooping with it this sunday :).



I messed up a bit of the Mandoa, It says "Trans Universal - Model: A. Run: 3." Just a random jetpack company I pulled out of nowhere. then the bit on the purple just says TU-A3.

There's going to be more paint. I'm going to put a purple stripe down the middle and a vok'chi clan sigil ontop.

Very nice! I like how streamlined it is, and how you have it mounted lower on the back plate.... A quality piece of hardware for sure! Well Done!

Agreed! I love the smaller, streamlined idea for a FH. Very nice!

Basic design is a very early model jetpack. so early. It's basically a fuel tank with thrusters. vent in the bottom for air intake,

It's a very nice look!

How did you attach it to the backplate?

if you look in the pictures of the back there's three bolts. those go through my back plate and are screwed with nuts to keep it in place.

Question: What was it before hand? I'm looking at ideas for Repulsor packs and this might also work for that with lights instead of exaust.

It's a bespoke piece, I had a friend who was working on a scale prop gunship for college, The body was vac-formed styrene, I got  couple of his other pulls and made this with them. I'll go back to college one day and see if we have any more of the vac forms lying about.

How did you do your harness? I cannot get mine to stay high enough up on my back.  My pack weighs about 12 pounds.

Wish I could help vod. I don't have a harness, this is super light, held on with bolts and wishful thinking.
