what size pvc pipe is that?Hey Hunters,
I have been Jonesin' for a resin AVP backpack for my suit for sometime but with money tight I decided to bite the bullet and build it from scratch.
Here are the progress shots so far and a sort of chronological order of how the thing is coming together.
First thing I was concerned with and the biggest challenge in my opinion was getting sheet material to conform to the rounded arc of the main body of the backpack.
So I started out with a piece of large electrical conduit made from PVC, (Home Depot or Lowes)
I created the fin portions, heated them by boiling and wrapped them around when I liked the shape I hot glued them on
Next I began cutting out the flat panels out of layeres of Sintra and built them up and assembled them
Then I started to assemble all the pieces I had created and fitting new pieces in as needed
This is the progress to date. I hope to continue to work as much as I can until I knock it out
I'll try and post some more in the coming days.
Thanks for looking and as always observations and comments are always helpful
My friend. That is so totally sick and off the hook. Shows the talent that is here. Hollywood aint got nuthn on the talent here!I stayed up until 5am doing the weathering and working on the paint up on my shins from Mr Fett.
Any way the beast is completed
