    Thanks for the kind words mate, I really hope I can make some progress soon. It's been sitting around for a while!

    One thing I did notice though, I was looking at BM's pack on his site and noticed that the central column on his JP is the same width as the housing for the rocket. On yours it does look as if the central column is not as wide as the housing.

    Perhaps you could add some filler to make these match up?

    Or maybe once the "teeth" are on there it will look right!?

    I tried to achieve a similar look to the JP shown here (i think it is a JP owned by Delta75). Not sure of the make though. Hope you don't mind me using one of your pics Delta75.

    If you look at the bottom of my central column it is in fact nearly the same diameter as the rocket housing. Well spotted though mate

    Actually that is incorrect. The top of the column (above the keys) should be narrower than the bottom. It should be the same width through the middle portion, but the overall diameter of the top portion should be less than that at the very bottom of the jet pack. They should not be the same width as yours (and MLC) is.

    Another well spotted If fact through my own incompetence The rocket housing on mine is actually slightly smaller than the main column. So by getting it wrong i seem to have gotten it right (well almost, its near enough for me). Thanks for all the comments though guys, hopefully with your help i can make this thing look really good.

    For the rocket housing i used 100mm dia tubing (the main column isn't in fact tubing, but a piece of curled over plastic sheeting). For the fuel cells i used 68mm dia tubing (thanks Dan).

    Oh and thanks Alan for the templates.

    I wish. My 'talents' don't go as far as moulding this thing (i can just about manage a bucket but thats that. Thanks for the compliments though Andy

    Alan (WoF). Without you buddy, this JP wouldn't exist, so many many thanks to you mate :thumbup

    I have just finished the bottom fuel cell caps and will start painting it ASAP. Will keep you all posted.

    once again thanks for all the encouragement.

    If you have the Cad files for that plate it would be greatly appreciated. I have just cut out some rough ones about 30 minutes ago, and plan to put them on tonight. It woul dbe nice to have the correct size though.

    Once again though buddy, thanks for your templates. All i did was 'bolt' everything together, i my opinion you did the hard work
