This is the progress so far of the mold I'm creating to make the ECTO GOGGLES vacuum formed PLASTIC SHELLS. I MIGHT move from plastic to FIBERGLASS, once I make a silicone rubber mold of it, but in the meantile, it will be the MAIN "plug for the vacuum-forming machine I have at home.
A little progress today, thanks to the WEATHER for spoiling my schedule.
Anyway, here are a few pics of what I’ve done today, namely assembly of the “box”, proper setting, and preliminary detailing of the top and front panel edges where the lenses should go. All I have to do is some more sanding, BONDO applying, and more sanding… to then do the last detailing. It might not be to the exact measure accurately, with a difference of a few less millimeters here and there, but it's done in such a way to EXCLUSIVELY FIT the vac-forming process, such as done in a "trapezoid" shape instead of an exact "rectangle"
The complete goggle shell should look like these, which I’ve made the skeleton based on almost same measurements and very same process from Coz_UK here on GBFans, with his scratch-built AN/PVS-5 based googles. (These following pics are from his thread, sorry if I did something wrong),
