That is perfect, exactly what I wanted.  My suggestion would be to add a pad of some sort under the wrap around plate (that white thing) at the small of your back to kick the bottom out from your back.  2 reasons; 1) it will pivot the top 1/3 of the jet pack a bit closer to your upper back and decrease that massive gap,  2) it will get the jets pointed away from your buttox and upper legs.  If you tried to fly with this as is, you'd burn up that entire region of your body....which isn't what you want I assume?

Thanks again everybody! got back to work on this after my first week of school and getting some tools that I needed
I think it's Coming along nicely ...  ;D
Be careful going through Doors ...  ;)
funny story, I already knocked one of the nozzle covers off going through a doorway in my house  :laugh: but I was able to reattach it, so all is well
So here is my progress

got the belt attached with the rivets and secured the parachute clips

primer

paint and rivet holes. I left that one part unpainted to allow the epoxy to cling on better
from there I glued and riveted that plate on, and I addressed this

now why would you assume that? I think char-broiled mando might be an interesting look  :laugh: but in all seriousness, I did add a temporary piece of padding to see how it would look. so without further ado



so I already raised the straps a little more after looking at these pictures, but other than that I think its just about done! (for now :P ) but what do you all think?

Yeah, that about does it.  I imagine the padding would also help on long troops where it might bounce against your lower back and start to annoy you.

Have you thought about putting together a parts list/templates for it?  I'm sure more than one person out there will want to do this build.  I would also imgaine you could sell them for a pretty penny

I am actually in the process of putting together a blueprint type thing for it, since the only real "part" used was cut sintra. I hope to have it posted up today  :)

Well I said I was going to post this up a couple days ago, but trouble with my scanner and getting sick prevented me from doing so  :'( however I decided to forgo the scanner and attempt just taking a photo of the schematics. so here you go


I hope this is clear enough, both in the fact that you can see it and understand it. If ya'll have any questions or just don't understand, feel free to ask me any questions/shoot me a message.
*Disclaimer: most of the measurements should be close/correct, however I may have been off in a few places, so you will probably have to extrapolate some of the measurements yourself*

Amazing build, brother! I've been against the idea of a jetpack/backpack for my kit because of some artwork I have on my backplate, but have begun collecting parts to start on one. You have taken an image and turned it into something spectacular, great work!
