    What all did you use in your flame thrower? I'm making one from scratch using bits and pieces and it looks nothing near as good as yours!

    Re: My scratch built ESB jetpack...cardboard

    THANK you for you comments, for the flame i used fiitting conectors, diferent size of s/s tubing, that going inside the others, and vynil paper to cover the tubing the red and black color, it is a little heavy if you want to compare to the resin's one, or alumminun. But it looks great my friend can not wait to see the complete costume, He has to wait even the costume made of scratch, it takes too much time, Right now i'm updatting my jango fett costume, my new darth maul horns, working with our boba fett costume and i'm doing a Halo costume too made of cardboard and plastic........oh wao, i need time.

    Thanks guy, scratch built is a good way to save money but you need a lot time to do things like this, sometimes we don't have the time so we have to buy it, i used both way depends of the situation.

    he's got "jet pack lean." heh. slightly tilting forward to compensate for the weight on the back. if you're going to be wearing that for an extended period you should get a back brace even though it doesn't weigh very much.
