Backpack With Fixings (Posted 22nd August 2009)

Again from another angle

Backpack With Fixings (Posted 22nd August 2009)

Yays!!!

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 Complete (Posted 22nd August 2009)

The whole Backpack Finished :D

All pannels atttached with Funfoam Glued on topp then all painted in Latex and a top coat latex mixed with acrylic paint glossed with Isoflex

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....
but the drying times TAKES AGGGGEEESSSSSSSS!!!

Once the paint had finally dried i gave a light coat of clear primer Isoflex to seal the paint :D

Boot in Progress 11 (Posted 16th January 2009)

Both Boots now have all foam peices Glued in place thanks to the wonders of Evostick

Also they have been treated to 3 layers fo Latex on the outside to prime for painting and add extra stregnth

Im happy with the look so move on to pinning and glueing with evostick
