Very nice indeed!
I was looking back at the film, the pick up shots must have been the attached scene, when the lunar lander was approaching Clavius...you can clearly see the wrist pad. I'm going to put it on mine for sure now.
I have been going back and forth on it, and decided, since I'm not going screen accurate and adding extra detail, I'm going to go with the wrist pad and thicker hose...and any help with reference is always welcome. Im reworking my chest pack after seeing the auction photos and getting ready for the backpack. Any scale/dimension info is also a big help.Arm pads were only on the Re-Shoot Moon suits. Same for the large air fitting on the helmet. The scenes with Floyd in TMA01 the air fitting was tiny. Are you going for Floyd suit or Re-Shoot suit?
I might have some good reference when you start the Backpacks.
I'm taking advantage at the space created by the crown detail. This placement should clear my head, and will hit the visor in a way I believe will mitigate fogging...the fans are putting out a good amount of air. I'm just starting to figure out the padding. Im going to design the seams to look like access panels to the data card readers and air circulation rather than match the "circus tent" of the originals...I intend to vacuum form the visor this week end.I’d really like to see how you mount those in the helmet. What’s your strategy to getting fog out?
