How To make Your Own Condenser Mic

Hi Chaps
 
I'm making my own large capsule condenser mic. It's a one off project for my own use. I won't be going into manufacturing or re-skinning capsules! I have already made the body (pic attached) and am now starting work on the capsule. I intend to make a 1" edge terminated dual diaphragm unit similar to the classic AKG. Once done I can proceed onto the all valve (tube) electronics and PSU.
 
I'm stuck for gold sputtered mylar film (3 micron?) to use. Please can anyone suggest a source or supply me with some to use. I'm happy to pay. As I said this is not a commercial venture just a hand made mic for use in my own personal studio. I have no wish to step on anyone's toes. This is for my own enlightenment and pleasure only.
 
Also, is there a reference book regarding mic construction I can buy? It would help me to understand better what I'm trying to do.
 
If you can help please reply.
 
Kind regards
 Andy
