current in progress after several failed attempts

I am again trying to construct this jingasa hat. It is proving to be difficult. I am working on the 4th prototype now..

getting ready to glass

fiberglass cloth don't like sharp edges to well, so I have to taper them to get the cloth to lay down better and avoid air pockets. Here I use glazing putty.

been playing with new ideas

new cylon concept helmet..

lower part of backpack ready for resin

lower part of the backpack is resin for the resin. The large triangle piece is a brace to hold the pack in correct position for the resin. YES, there are holes in the back-plate of the pack, this was done to aid in construction and will be replaced with a solid plate after glassing of the front on the inside.

pack shown with the center front detail and flap on, showing where they would go for a idea as to finished pack would look like.
