Default Rocketeer JetPack

I just watched Rocketeer again, and thought that the jetpack looked pretty cool. So I decided to model it. Heres what I have so far:



Some of the parts look unclear, but thats cause of the renderer... I'll try and get a better render soon.

Not a bad start. A couple comments though:

1. The overall length (or would it be height) looks a bit long.

2. The rings around the nozzles are a bit small.

3. The bulge should be rotated out more.

I'm attaching a reference I found after a quick search.

Here's an update. Made it shorter, added in vents, rotated the buldge, adjusted the exhaust pipes:


Still need to add/fix:
Fix nose cones
add wires and tidbits to the exhaust
Add "flaps" under the exhaust
Midsection

Here's another update:
Started on the mid section. Still need to edit the top part, make it smoother and nicer, and I need to add all the rivets.
