    May 3, 2009, 6:48 PM - Nightmare's Iron Man WIP #1

    got my suit last week and started the trimming process. im 5 hours in now and barely made a dent. here are some pics for your enjoyment. comments, questions, suggestions all are welcome





    on the helmet I had to split the rear of it and add 1/2 plug to get the helmet to fit on. I still have some sanding and heating to do before I attempt to get the helmet on again.

    I didn't know they sold unfinished kits. That's really awesome. You mind if I ask what an unfinished kit costs? I might be interested in one.

    WOW!

    How clean are these to assemble?

    What kind of work needs to be done to get it ready for prime
    and then painting?

    Is there a hold for the arc reactor?
    Hand holes for lights?

    I am surprised they dont offer a kit themselves?

    Looks very cool.

    May I ask their contact info or website?
    I cannot afford anything right now but would love to get in line
    as soon as a work miracle happens.

    Would you reccomend this for a newbie to handle? I have a small cordless dremmel. (What would this really take. You mentioned it's resin... Is it thick or flimsy this.

    Thanks

    the castings are pretty clean. there are a few spots that need to be cleaned with excess resin and a few pin holes but nothing out of the ordinary. the casting are about 1/3 inch thick so they are very sturdy. as assembly there is a lot of work ahead of me. it took me close to 4 hours to clean up all the boot parts and there is still wrk to do there but its now very close to the primer stage. the chest I have about a hour and a half into it but thats just breaking the parts up I still have a lot of clean up work there. there is a cut out for the arc reactor and something to place there to hold a light but im still looking in to how I want to do it. ill keep you guys posted on that front. unfortantly there are no parts for the hands Sid I guess uses pvc piping to make his, but I might have a lead on someone to make a pair of gloves and the neck armor over in china.

    just saw this
    "Would you reccomend this for a newbie to handle? I have a small cordless dremmel. (What would this really take. You mentioned it's resin... Is it thick or flimsy this."

    im using my plug in dremel for this one and a diamond cutting disc, cuts like butter.

    as for a newbie I would have to ask what experiences you have working with resin. I dont think ive done anything that requires much experiences yet but if you take on this one make sure you have some contacts to ask questions too. I have a couple people that ive been picking there brain just to figure out how to assemble this

    You got to talk to them at dragoncon and you have to wave some money around. They do nice paint jobs but their work is hardly good enough to warrant so much attitude.

    I've seen other costumers with Nightmare Armor Iron Man suits, so it's obvious they do make them.
    Why they told you they don't, I don't know.
