A recent photo story I put together quite quickly shows my 3D printed GI Joe Adventure Team Action Pack Jetpack. It sits in the back of a GI Joe Trouble Shooter.
Part of the plan was to build a rack for the Trouble Shooter (also the Adventure Team Vehicle or ATV, which is a yellow wheeled version. Or rather the Trouble Shooter is a variant on the original ATV.)
Here’s the rack in all its glory.
The rack is made up of two unique pieces cleverly modeled to be 100% symmetrical.
The rack mount is the same on both sides. Each one is supported by two legs. However, since the back of the ATV slopes, the leg is taller at the front than at the back. Just flipping one leg around makes it fit perfectly, supporting the weight of the jetpack.
There are two pins in the center of each rack frame which fit into the jetpack engines when they are slotted to the sides of the jetpack body. This pin is the same one that is on the jetpack itself, so it fits tightly to secure the vehicle in the rack. The rack is then shaped to perfectly fit the engine housings.
The jetpack can fit in the rack facing the front or the back, however, the harness arms have more room if they face the rear
Here you see the black stealth version of the jetpack.
And now, befitting of the original, I thought I would introduce the Stealth version of the Jetpack, and the ATV Mounting Rack, in an appropriate but very very short Photo Story. Don’t look for a complex plot, though.
