wait i am 100% sure that the arc that tony is wearing the new core arc while using the mark 7 we shouldnt be considering this pic for the arc because in this scene, he is not working so we cant see if it is or not ; also this pic is very blury sooo
there is no triangle there, you cannot doubt that. its all circles
i will not deny that he has the triangle chestpiece on while he gets out of the old damaged suit, and probably also has it under the new suit, but who says, that there is no cover for it included in the new suit.
i just watched the movie again, and due to not having a screenshot program, this is what printscreen came up with.
you can see the exact time of the shot, check it out on the bluray, you will see there is no triangle
there is no triangle but it is because he is turned off also ; the suit in the movie was done without a real suit;l its all done by computer so we cant judge if its the triangle or not because they did it by computer
i know why you saw that its because to power all the suit he need to get his arc '' plugable'' so he uses a diffuse ring that is in his undersuit but whitout arc reactor the diffuse ring is no use
so the triangle arc powered the whole suit
What you guys are seeing is the Unibeam, not the arc reactor. Its what allows him to use the arc as a weapon. The reactor in his chest is still the same and no upgrades or new versions were shown from the end of IM2 into the Avengers. When tony is talking to Loki in the penthouse, its still the same Reactor glowing from behind his shirt
Good point, Bimmer.
about the paint "technique". . .i don't use PVA glue here. . .i used acrylic emulsion. . .then silver paint as primer. . .then "flash" coat of red. . .then 2 flash coats of white spray paint and then my final layer of red and gold. .it worked on my build specially at the ab pieces. .it makes my build "plastic" like
as i said, the arc reactor probably is triangular below the suit
but the unibeam (well i shouldve called it that from the beginning xD) is what is visible, and it most certainly is round
also, as im annoyed by people opening all those countless iron man build threads, i will just post my progress here

Hey EOS. Great progress on your build. I had the same bicep problem you were having. I have since moved on to the chest and back. Couldn't stomach the thought of building my 4th bicep. Did you trim the bottom or were you able to find a scale that worked? Any insight before I get back to the arms will b helpful.
Also where are you connecting Darkside's shoulder bells?
yeah but i also got info from a site that i cant remeber --' that said that it is also a diffuse ring that connect the suit to the arc reactor to power it
I'm about to embark on this journey in the next couple days, and am so lost it hurts haha. I was wondering a few things. I'm 5"7 145 lbs, will the files fit my stature? Also what kind/how much card stock do you need. Also Is anyone on this from Vancouver/lower mainland? MSG me if you've made a suit. Thanks people
I also used around 300 pages. I am working with a friend sharing paper who is building a war machine and we used nearly 600 pages of 180gsm paper. That's basically the thickest printable paper we could find in Staples. (US uses weight per pack or something, just Google a conversion )
Hope this helped [check my previous posts for more details on scaling and videos of the finished wearable suit if you need any more info]

thanks das. ive got most the files now am just trying to figure out how to use the viewer and scale stuff and print it. youtube is not helping
Pepakura Designer FAQs
You can try to alter the scale via printer settings, but it's fairly hit or miss in my experience. I tried doing this by printing to PostScript files via a Generic PostScript printer driver, converting it to a PDF, and then adjusting the scale from Adobe Reader. In the end, I coughed up the $40 for the designer, because $40 was a reasonable price for my sanity.
you can scale with viewer, you just can't save
Oh damn I'm thinking of designer. My bad . On designer, you can scale but nit save if you haven't paid for the key.
but you can download, install and use designer, just not save the edits.
