I'm a new member and have been lurking and reading up to get helpful tips for my War Machine build. I started this suit In early May, have been working on it pretty steadily, but have had some rough delays due to scaling issues. I think I've finally learned my lesson, later today or tomorrow I will post a pic of the pile of wrong sized parts that have frustrated me as I go along.
I'm using Juice's pep files, modified for foam by Stealth. Stealth's Hero Tutorials' on Youtube gave me a huge head start on this, as I watched all of them over and over before I finally decided to take on this build.
Right now I am working on making the last few pieces:
Hands (almost done)
Helmet (the one in the pic is a Mk 3 SD, and a little too big, I'm thinking about trying to hard coat this helm, hinge the faceplate, and light it)
HD abs by StageFiveDrift (pic abs are just not cutting it imo)
I'm also working on fitting the suit, most of the attachments are done, I'm gonna build hinges into the knees (like Indie Film Geek did in his son's suit), right now they're just web straps and I don't like how floppy they are.
Having some issues with the boots, I will go into detail on that later in the thread. I've been pretty poor about taking progress pics, but I'll try and take more as I go forward. As a new builder and forum member, I appreciate all input, thanks for reading!
