I think he means that it is supposed to be some sort of missile magazine. From what I was able to make out of that sarcastically useful diagram, the missiles will load like a pistol loads bullets.
About the actual looks on this conversion...be my guest...if it works out, throw up some pictures.
A friend of mine has his Tau converted with tyranid bits. Hit shaper has a ripper head for a knife handle. His battlesuits have several pieces of armour replaced with tyranids and it looks pretty dynamic.
No offence but that doesn't sound that great to me. A belt would be way cooler and would give you a great opportunity for a conversion challange. Mabye I should do that.
Opps sorry, I'll elaborate. I mean a belt feed (like a gatling gun) that goes from the missle launcher to the backpack (mabye add on the missle ammo container too). I think it would look rather cool with a belt of missiles hanging around it. Have the actual launcher as a handheld gun or a wrist attachment. I'll draw something later and scan it in if that doesn't help.
Ace of Spades, I do believe you gave me my next conversion project.
Also, if you could gather them up, you could use the Space Marine missiles (the ones that come in the tactical squad box).
Then have a small box on the side or top of the Jetpack.
