    I've just finished painting my MLC Jet Pack. It has an aluminum beacon with a blinking red LED fitted. The timing isn't screen accurate, but it does the trick.

    I'm still working on the harness system and a way to make smoke come out of the nozzles.

    Then comes the working rocket... I'm thinking something spring loaded.

    i just finished my pack today... well, mostly finished. i noticed a couple of mistakes that i'll want to fix. but here it is:



    it's a ruffkin kit... vac formed body, and a mix of resin and fiberglass details.

    weighs VERY little, which makes me VERY happy

    I don't know why it has taken me so long to post pics of my jet pack but here they are. I know I am missing the litte stablizer thing but I will get around to getting one sometime. It is the fantastic MLC kit that I could not be happier with. Anyone on the edge about one of these jet packs...stop and buy one now.

    Here's a pic of the one for my custom mando. Think it's an old GA fiberglass pack. It belonged to a former TDH member. BigaboyFett.
    Still working on it......

    Of course here is mine... 1 week and 5lbs later...totally scratch-built. Actually, it seemed the easiest part to do for me since it didnt take any bending or anything with the sintra. However, I couldnt have done it without all the info others have posted already who have pioneered this area.
    Thanks guys, I used spray paint cans on the sides and just built box-like walls out of sintra in all the right areas... The nose cones are spinners (<a style='text-decoration: none; border-bottom: 3px double;' href="http://www.serverlogic3.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=31&k=radio%20control" onmouseover="window.status='radio control'; return true;" onmouseout="window.status=''; return true;">radio control</a> airplane nose cones from a hobby shop.









    DAMN THAT IS AWSOME man is it easy using Sintra man my dad doesnt believe me that it is that easy

    Well since everyone is painting their :jet pack I thought what the heck id repaint mine right before halloween, b/c it's not fun unless you have a very important dead line.


    Not to happy with the blue, and I went a little crazy with the dirty look. But fear not! Next year I know ill sand it down and repaint it again.

    Im getting rid of that beacon in a few weeks if someones interested

    it looks good, but it'd be better if you make a new thread.

    still, the jet pack looks good!

    and yes, it keeps on happening to me too

    i still think you should make a new thread on your scratch-built jet pack

    oh, and btw, the rocket base is smaller in diameter than the main tank

    If I were to guess (not knowing the truth) I would say that there was a link to some media here that is showing up as a possible remote login for a Linksys device of some sort. And when the browser attempts to load the media that is sitting behind that IP, it is sent an authentication request.

    As for my pack, here is what I have so far, Its scratchbuilt!

    Re: Official Show Off Your JetPack (scratchbuilt too!)

    I am still working on my 3 jet packs. As you will be able to see i was experimenting with several techniques and materials. some worked way better than others. since these are my first tries screen accuracy was not high on priority. Just seeing if I could get something even remotely shaped like a jet pack was though. I thing they are coming along well. The ESB ( middle) was my first attempt.It is heavy. I wanted durability and filled it with foam. I am re working it to get a better missle. The far left is just a lite flat pack for my 4 year old's costume. It has to be lite ( so far so good). The last ( 3rd try) My Jango , It the best of the three ( and most screen accurate) It really wouldn't take much to get it to screen accuracy ( but not something I am too concerned with right now. I will probably end up selling or trading it with my Jango costume. I gotta get rid of one. These are my progreess pics
