    thank you all for the compliments. i wish i had some more time to make it a bit more accurate.
    the tanks are just cans with the bottom of another can glued to the bottome.

    well my dremel blew up in a hail of sparks and flames before i could finish the thrusters so ive decided to turn my pack into a custome. here it is with some quick paint. i plan on putting the thruster under the tanks like the stubby version.
