Vastoom's custom Jetpack.
« on: Mar 12, 2015, 03:25 PM »
I started work on a jet pack and as with everything I do I was too excited to start the wip and update it step by step. So here is my retroactive wip. 
I started with 2 extra large orange cups and 4 large green cups.


I added 4 pieces of PVC to the outward facing side and used fiberglass resin to smooth them together. I will be using bondo to finish the smoothing.

I then added some thinner plastic to the backside.

lots of finishing still and need to figure out an attachment method.

As much as I liked the Idea of a complete custom jet pack I decided to go with the arena PEP jet pack. after assembling the templates I fiber glassed them. I added a little bondo to fill out some areas and give mine a little different appearance. I used a couple old gear belts as greeblies to give it some texture finally it was time to paint. After that I added a couple strips of automotive detail lights to the body and connected them to a 9v battery in the base. I made a harness system to wear inside my vest and attached two clips to the back through my backplate. I will probably have to add a attachment to the bottom but so far it fits snuggly to my back.

Other than the parts that are green its all just the arena pack pep file made out of card stock.
