Major Step Ahead

Lots of close tailoring over the past few months have given me and my team a good understanding of the ways to fabricate excellent, tailored pressure suits. Tonight I righted a mistake we made the other night and got most of the Mark VII (seventh major design) seamed together, the seams look good and soon I can attach the helmet ring, gloves and boots -- see photos in earlier posts of our home-fabricated helmets, we've for some months now retired the old Russian air force helmet I've been using since 2009! We'll be flying this suit to increasing altitudes through this year!
