After getting Bobamakers excellent Jet Pack, I thought I would work on making a screen accurate harness.
I started with this rough draw:
I based the measurements on the various photo references of the prop, measurements off my Jet Pack, size of the actual US Diver belt used, and some educated guesses.
I also scribbled some harness ideas, based on what I see in the pics, and what I can obtain from my sources.
This is what I had made up in AutoCad:
Now - I am working on making it...
I all ready have the round bar stock, bending it to make the curve.
(Hint: put sand inside the hollow tube and seal the ends, it makes bending it easier, less prone to crack or crimp)
If you want a rotating 3d model of this - go to this site and get the Edrawings viewer. Make sure you get the autocad add on.
click on the "Free Edrawings Program" button on the right.
It's free, and allows you to see the following file, if you don't get this program, you will not be able to use it...
The 3D Drawing:
(Please only download the DWG if you intend on making the harness, help save my bandwidth!)
The Autocad DWG (with dimensions):
I will post more pictures of the actual buildup as I do it - stay tuned!
(feel free to use this as you want, just give me credit for it!)
