Rocket Man

It's strange, isn't, the way that certain things crop up at the same time, take, for instance, the day I started making my Rocket Back Pack, at exactly the same time, a number of other makers around the world were doing EXACTLY THE SAME THING...

So, without further ado, here is my 'take' on the rocket pack and helmet:
The front of the pack, with leather straps and helmet.
 The Rocket Pack itself.

The Pack in close up.

The 'Business End' of the rocket engines.
Co0ntrols on the left-hand gauntlet.

Temperature display and altitude gauge.

Fuel regulators.

Winged helmet.

This is a mostly metal construction, as befits a device that would be subject to extremes of temperature, and the inevitable concussion from failed launches.
