    Questions about custom jetpacks

    When making your own jet pack, do a lot of people use paper mache?

    I don't think so. There where a couple of jp using only cardboard around, but to my knowledge Raptorarts was the first one who covered such a project with coats of papermache around here.

    Here are some pics of my last layer of paper mache. i added some patching compound, but the results didn't come out good. i then added some paper mache. i think the coatings are about a cm thick.
