What's up everyone! I have yet to create a build thread for my suit, simply because of the log jam of iron man suits that reside here most everyday, but I would like to share with you all a little about my suit.
I started this suit approx November of 2011, with the goal of being finished by Halloween of this year. When i started, I took quite a few pictures, but as the build progressed, and it got closer and close to Halloween, I found myself zoning out and concentrating on the build its self and not taking as many pics as I would have liked. But I will share everything that I have :-).
I started with a duct tape dummy, thanks to Stealth's tutorial, and as I pepped each piece, I modified each piece from their original, so that it would be a tight fitting suit. No offense to the amazing suits I have saw, I have never been a fan of the void that you can see between the chest plate and the actual wearers chest, or the back armor and actual back, ect, ect. So I tried my best to make this a very tight fitting suit as I could with the help of my "dummy"
I also didn't want to use magnets to hold the upper body together, so I used Chicago screws to basically bolt the brace together, then the two breast plates bolt to the brace, and the chest piece bolts to the breast plates, it makes for a very study assembly, although it is tedious and time consuming to get on and off... I will post pictures of this later as I don't have. Any at the moment..
The rest of the suit is your run of the mills strapping with parachute clips and Velcro.
Big should outs to RoBO for his pep files, pannus props for the helmet, zabana for his gloves and fingers(although I am in the process of building my own), project earth7 for his unibeam and repulsors, bigturcc for his hip pods, and masked rider for the neck seal.
Now on to the pics :-)
Forgive the last pic , the neck seal wasn't totally completed and was missing its Velcro to hold it closed. Those were just test fitting pics before I did final filling and sanding work before paint.
Thanks for looking!! And I also have more pics on my other phone that I will later :thumbup:
