    I do believe Ripcode has one on the way. You may want to PM him.

    I just got mine in from BobaMaker:



    inside (notice the imbedded rings for strap attachement)


    closeup of the rocket:



    engine nozzle:




    and his harness system:



    it has two shoulder straps and a strap across the chest, with two straps going back for the jet pack connections.


    and here is a closeup of the beacon, I plan on drilling out the middle to put in a lamp for it.

    Congrats. The BM Jet Pack is now the BEST :jet pack available. I can't wait to see one painted up.

    Did BM include the threaded studs on the rocket and thrusters, or did you add those on?

    it sure did - didn't take a close up pic of it.

    it also has the back panel - again - no pic

    I plan on painting this up in the next two weeks - have alot of armour to work on now

    The studs (hardware) were included (all pics are right out of the box)

    I may come up with some sort of ball bearing joint for the nozzles, so they swivel easily. (was thinking of adding CO2 smoke, but......)

    I am going to add attachment hardware for the beacon/stab.

    I will be using velcro to hold the panel in place.


    Pictures alone cannot tell you everything about this Jet Pack.

    This thing is solid. It has weight (not too much!) and is not flimsy at all.

    Got my BM jtepack yesterday!

    DAZ's packing job is awesome! He uses a TON of bubble wrap to make sure this get's delivered safely. No shipping it in an envelope with a single wrap of brown craft paper...

    I'm not going to post any pics as it looks the same as the one Stonerook got. All gray!

    It is very nice and will need little cleanup. There are pin holes here and there. Minor pesky things.

    It weighs under 7 lbs on my scale. Not bad. It's a lot lighter than my SCBA pack while firefighting...

    It comes with a resin beacon and stabilizer and also a harness.

    I look forward to one day seeing it painted...
