Firstly, thanks for the support and interest so far. Work has been slower than I wanted, but it needs to be right and some reworking has resulted in a better finished pack and the extensive work on the thruster was not something I thought would cost me so much time, but has been well worth the effort.
Although some things have changed I have held the price at £180. This project is not about making money and the costing is tight, but due to us working together as a co-operative I am going to be ordering up materials in bulk which helps make it work.
So, as of today I have a fully finished mold that I have produced the first finished pack body. Production is now underway on main bodies. The thruster, I am promised will be with me and complete before the end of the week - even if have to spend all Friday night in the shop till I get it. The missile needs some slight filling and sanding. I will be making the molds for these at the weekend, with a view to shipping the first pack Monday as it is required urgently. I have a stock of greeblies on hand and a number of basic harnesses available.
Basic Harness £28
Bulb & wiring to greeblie switch for beacon pre-instaled £10
Shipping in the UK £20
Shipping Worldwide £35
I do not yet have confirmed availability or prices for the following optional upgrades:
Metal Harness Rig - waiting on prototype - confirmed availability
Knurled stainless steel missile section - confirmed availability
Ali Thruster End caps/Greeblies - confirmed availability
U.S. Divers buckle cold casting
Jet Pack mounting hooks
All optional upgrades can be retro-fitted if you want to upgrade at a later time and some may have exsiting parts to use.
So with everything in place and as it should be I am ready to place an order for materials. I have updated the interest list and have enough greeblie parts to fulfill all those on the list at this time. As I have no order in which to run the list I think it would be best to throw it open to all on the list and ask for the first 5 to make paymnet. This will then be phase one and when complete we will all have a better understanding of the time scale for the next phase.

Photos will follow asap of the finished body and thruster by weekend.
Thanks all......and here we go
