    I have several ribs for every structure. Also some bondo on the joints helps.

    I am about to embark on my cardboard jetpack. I was wondering has anyone thought of reinforcing the internal cavity of the jetpack with some of that foaming insulation material (Great Stuff) to keep it from being hollow. I think it might add some strength to the overall body.

    I used Great Stuff in my scratchbuild... but.... the stuff will continue to expand long after you think it has cured. You MUST leave a route for it to flow out of and then trim it later.

    extremely clever using the bottle and cap to make the rocket detatchable. did you use anything else besides spackle to reinforce the cardboard?

    Hmmmm... that juice bottle idea looks kinda familiar...



    Nice job on your pack so far. Looking forward to seeing it all painted up.

    Long time no post, well still working on the jetpack, well recently started back up. Yeah for soul crushing jobs!. I'll post some progress shots up tomorrow, and yes I blatantly stole that bottle idea. It was such a good idea.

    Oh and I should rephrase saying its mostly spackle, and bondo.
