No problem Bud!:coolDarth 123, As I look back at my previous postings it looks like I have made a serious attempt at hijacking your thead. I'm sorry as this was not my intent. I will watch your build with interest and help you any way I can.
Love the idea of making one of these! I have gone ahead and started the parts to print in 3D. Does anyone have dimensions for the connectors? or by chance the flag on the shoulder? Rivet size? I am still researching these things...Hi!
For my next project I really want to build the A7L Apollo space suit (Apollo 11 style)
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
I can´t spent thousands on a finished replica so I have to make one by my own instead.
I only see problems on the helmet, the boots and the hose connections on the suit.
My plan is to use two cotton coveralls (white on the outside and blue on the inside), sew them together to get a nice base. And later modify them with new pockets, and other details...
I´ll have to remove the front zippers and put a new one at the back.
Some time ago there was a great Blog where someone showed his build of a really accurate suit- however this doesn´t seem to exist anymore unfortunately.
I really would appreciate any tips & tricks (How to´s) for this project...The suit doesn´t need to be 100% accurate but I want to have a nice display piece at the end.
Thanks very much for your help!
