As most of you know, the MLC Jet Pack is the nicest and lightest jet pack available at this time. It is well made, sturdy, very light and ready for paint right out of the box. However, the rocket and thrusters, are not as accurate nor as detailed as the rest of the pack.
Like few others on the board, I wanted to upgrade these parts to be more accurate. I made several attempts to contacting one maker, but I got no response. At just about the time I received my JP, Bobamaker started working on his scratchbuilt JP. And the progress pics on his site, looked great. Long story short ... I was able to pick up a rocket and a set of thrusters from BM to use with my MLC :jet pack .
Here are two comparison pics. MLC first and BM second.
Note: I thought I had a pic of the BM parts right out of the box, but I could not find it. The pic below is of the pieces after I modified them to fit the MLC pack.
I will update the thread with some other progress pics, as I get a chance.
