Backpack With Fixings (Posted 22nd August 2009)
Purely by accident i came up with this fixing !!!
I have one Flatened End screwed Against the Frame and the other end is held down by a cable tie :D
This is a solid fixing and solves the problem of the wings breaking again :)
Wings Reaired (Posted 22nd August 2009)
Rods are now inserted in to the existing wing piles and the duct tape between the 2 poles allow a tight fit....
Now to make the fixings for the back pack
Wing Repair (Posted 22nd August 2009)
After cutting down the wings I returned to B&Q and bought piping the same size and the next size down...
With the under sized piping i wrapped duct tape around the middele and eaither end then stuff the rods in to thie wings...
Stripped down (Posted 22nd August 2009)
Not only did i have more screws to deal with than the average worker in amsterdam but they were all hidden under the layers of funfoam Glue and Latex i had applied :D
Needless to say i coudnt locate any of them so took a hammer to the unsupported areas and litterly tore the pannels off, i felt sick and i still had on idea of how to fix the wing problem :S
GaH THe ReBuiLD!! (Posted 22nd August 2009)
The wing fell off just before the Masquerade @ Minami :S
Luckily enough Dr Tab was on hane with an amazing emergancy repair :D
So the rebuild was started days before Ayacon 09 :S i forgot how much i had to do, the ic above shows some of thhe screws i had holding the panels in place and ofcoutse the broken wing parts...

Backpack in progress 5 (Posted 16th March 2009)
Frame work fuly assemblled and some pannels attached & covered in funfoam...
Boots Complete (Posted 28th January 2009)
The most time consuming part by FAR!!!
Painting the boots in a mix of acryllic paint and latex was quick enough....
Once the paint had finally dried i gave a light coat of clear primer Isoflex to seal the paint :D
