    Awesome thing to share!

    Maybe Rafal Fett will chime in. He's great with this kind of stuff.

    The funny thing is that I had this project (amongst others too) in work in the last months and is more or less finished (the measurements were added quickly just to show the overall size of the frame):

    I used all the available images from the TDH Gallery (Supertrooper/Pre-Pro #1, ANH SE and the MoM/SWtE exibits images) to achieve the best proportions and sizes for the jetpack frame.

    Hi Rafal !

    I think you're the best in measurements. But i think the buckles at the bottom of the harness have a parallelogram shape, not rectangular.

    Thanks a lot, StrumFett! I already modified the buckle form and I will post the updated files (in my misc template thread ==> RafalFett's Misc Templates and Blueprints) when I'll complete all the measurements.

    Man, I always thought they were bigger than that! That's great to hear they're so small. Time to make one.

    I cant imagine the way that sitting up against your lower back will be comfortable. It looks very good and screen accurate. I have something similar. I mounted mine in one of my old military vests. where the loops are on the back, that's where the aluminum harness is and I mounted a bracket that "T's" out to hold the JP. My upper body supports the JP and not just my shoulders. Also to consider is that my JP is very heavy. Good job! Any body know who has the divers belt buckle? Mine is close but not perfect.

    Kcr7pr was selling a real buckle a couple weeks back. Also, BBF makes replicas but he's been missing in action lately.

    You can also keep an eye on ebay. I scored a real vintage US Divers buckle and weight belt for $20 last week.
