Jetpack Update

Fully completed jetpack

Rather than create something new, I simply transferred the fabric "flames" from the Mark 1 over to the Mark 2 (the fabric moves nicely when I'm up on the stilts). To cover up the now-redundant bottom two holes, I used  a couple of stickers on each side, the top holes being all that was needed to attach to the backpack (see the build log for more details). Painting the fuel tanks red and blue completed the project.

The cap and goggles are the same ones I wore at last year's Lantern Festival, but Krista made me an awesome new aviator's scarf.
