Darth 123,

The suit that you are referring to was on Ebay last week. Search 'Space Suit' under completed items.

Yes it is a super accurate sexy beast.

The Wolv......Besides Ken's Uber accurate 3d printed connectors, there are Break away steering wheel adapters on ebay in red and blue. They are for the Fast and Furious crowd so they can easily install and remove their steering wheels.

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...

Also, so far I have the flag with the bloated looking stars and some connector files if anyone needs them.

UPDATE: Everything shown is now modeled and on Shapeways at the correct size!

Hey guys!

I work at a spaceflight exhibition as a historian and tourguide and have acces to 2 A&L suits. 1 is a A&L with a detached backback which is displayed in another case without the white cover. The other suit is a A7L B wore by John Young during training. The suits is cut open on the right side to show the different internal layers, from the cooling garment up to the outer suits.

So if you guys need any reference pictures let me know. You have intil the end of the month because then we are shipping out the exhibition to Tokyo. ]

Happy building

Ditto. If you can get pics of the cover while off the back pack that would be great also. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Kenlandrum,

I'm a long time lurker - first time poster :)

I have embarked on my own project to build the A7L suit - could you be so kind and send me your connector files please - I can't seem to find any decent ones anywhere!
