The hard parts get married the soft parts as Adam's xEMU-inspired spacesuit contines to take form.
Work continues apace on Adam's pair of xEMU-inspired spacesuits to celebrate the relaunch of the gaming network G4.
For the first time, we document the build of Adam's spacesuits in its entirety!
Adam is back to finish his replica wrist connectors for his new Mercury spacesuit costume! After the arduous process of machining the glove rings in the first part, Adam gets to the fun of weathering the aluminum to look like real vintage NASA hardware. And for that, he brings out a new piece of equipment that he hasn't used for a build before--a rock tumbler for real wear and tear!
Adam's latest machining project is a return to his Mercury spacesuit replica, his very first spacesuit replica project that keeps on getting improvements. Adam just upgraded the gloves on this suit with an amazing custom sewn pair, and turns to machining the distinct wrist coupler rings that connect them to the main suit. It's a painstaking process of turning a large round aluminum bar into hardware that looks right out of NASA's spacesuit shop.
