Thanks guys for the nice comments, means quit a lot coming from such talented people. I just like to build stuff if I'm able.
Yeah these are the files off the 405th, the helmet is done by Dungbettle and the chest by Dancin_fool. I only have the torso files to work with though the rest of the suit is not finished and I suck badly at pc software so scaling other stuff to work with the upper stuff is a no go. Might end up with half a suit. :unsure
These pieces are still in the rough out stages, the helmet a little finer than the chest. The helmet is only down to 180grit and needs quit a bit of work to the rear/ear section. I reworked the top vent and faceplate twice already cause I wasn't happy with it, set me back a few hours for sure.
This is the first costume/suit I've made, played around with some Batman stuff out of foam and a Batgirl sculpt a few months ago but unless I invest a bunch of cash in the casting supplies I can't finish anything. So that went on the shelf, this is way more cost efficent.
I do build other things I'm an autobody mech by trade so this is pretty easy to do, I've been doing it my whole life really. I also machine and airbrush a bit, here's some links some of my other work if you guys want to have a look see.
Oh and all my work on this and my machining is all done manual, I don't have a cnc. Just wanted to add that, seem to be the first thing people ask me for some reason.
Wow Finhead this is amazing work I can't wait to see the paint job you give this project... With prep work this good you could paint it with a brush and it would still look amazing (okay,maybe not but you know what I'm saying...).
Thanks again guys, good to know it's at least looking like Iron man.
Had a chance to work on it again last night and today. Reworked some of the chest and the helmet once again, keep finding things I don't like about it and stuff I haven't done yet. And glassed the back and did the bodywork and primer. Still in the rough for sure but it's at least making me want to do more. Let me know what ya think. Oh and pics would have been better but the wife was messing with the camera and I couldn't get it back to right, no idea. :confused
