    Vinman not only are your templates a godsend, but your building skills are remarkable, keep it up. If you ever have to get rid of any I will be
    happy to take them off your hands (hint hint)....

    Absolutely true! In so many ways he has made it possible for many of us to dive in and create our own scratch build items. YAY Vinman! :)

    Unfortunately none seem to exist. I did this by eyeballing vinmans pictures.

    The pipe came from Lowe's. Its about 1-1/2" diameter. I cut about 3" off the non-flared end and then eyeballed from there.

    The backpack is at my fiance's house ATM... so next time I'm there ill take some measurements for you.

    No templates exist that I know of. I've had to make do with eyeballing everything. I've now made two in this way.

    As I keep saying there are no templates. I don't have any for the ones I've made either. I just looked at Vinmans pictures and drew out my own pieces onto paper and then transfered those to foam and sintra. I didn't save the paper pieces once I was done with them.

    Start with getting the pipe. That will give you the scale that you need to base all of the rest off from.

    They actually went together pretty quickly. the second (the black/grey one) I got finished in about two days.

    I'm sure some of that was owing to the fact that I'd done the white one first... so I was more comfortable and thought of a few short cuts.
