A little update - The jet pack patterns are working well. The Betas are building their packs, and the couple I've seen are turning out great.
My email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I ALSO have complete patterns for all the rest of the armor, but I have not written any tutorials, and the gauntlets are much more complex than the jet pack in terms of the number of pieces needed. Those will be for some time in the future, but I won't send them out until I'm confident they're useable.
edit: People who already have patterns can email me if they need an updated version of the tutorial, with the Stubby modifications included now. The patterns are the same, it's just an email of the newer tutorial version that would be useful for you. Thanks to malcfett for his excellent Beta-ing.
