    Hey everyone, I've gotten a jetpack kit recently, and it all seems pretty simple to assemble except for one part. The interior is pretty hollow and it came with a sheet of plastic for the back. Now how can I rig up a harness (so that I can wear it) inside the pack that would be sturdy enough to support it, in the end it'll probably weigh 10-15lbs.
    I ask here because Mirax had just posted her awesome Jango costume.
    I've been to thedentedhelmet forums and looked through those posts there and have been unable to find any that relate to my question. Unfortunately my username for those boards has been corrupted and hasn't allowed me to log on forever.
    Any help is appreciated.

    did your kit come with a length of pvc pipe for the center tank?

    The rocket, however, is casted onto a piece of pvc pipe. But once in it wouldn't reach all the way to the bottom.

    Mine actually attaches with velcro to my back piece. However, this threadshould help.

    Thanks alot Mirax, that helps an incredible amount.
    It's weird, I swear I've seen that post before, but I never noticed those pics. Perhaps I lost interest before they loaded due to my slooooow modem. Oh well, thanks again!

    BTW Mirax, you did a great job on your pack and entire outfit.

    One advantage of being a woman, the Rubies Jango helmet actually fits you.
