I painted the star on the chest a
Metallic silver instead of keeping it white, I also painted some old Christmas decorations (stars) and added them to the shoulders to complete the 3D look.
I also made a decision on what to do for the stand. I will add some faux brick to the wall in the inset the display sits in and make a base that looks like concrete fore him to stand on. Behind the mannequin I will hang a few WWII war propaganda posters and if space permits a old crate or two with the old stark industries logo or SSR logo. Thoughts?
I also painted my Avengers style helmet (still need the soft portion of the cowl) and my M-1 Bucky rescue helmet (waiting on the goggles to arrive) to include on concrete colored corner shelves in the display. Any thoughts or suggestions are still welcome.
I have a new phone/camera ordered, so Tuesday I will take better pics of the suit itself and update as I finish the stand, but here is another shot I took with the recently finished helmet (I'm looking forward to getting the finished fettster bust to go under it)
I got the unfinished shell from eBay and painted it myself.
The leather portion was in another helmet that punisherNC sold me that I pulled out of his and added to mine. I think earlier in this thread he posted who made the leather, also just search "Captain America helmet" on eBay and it will pull up the shell for you. They run about $130 + shipping
I just wanted to drop a note of thanks for the compliments on the leather chin strap I made for Mike's (PunisherNC's) helmet. CaptainSuperman, it looks like you did an excellent job of removing it from Mike's helmet and putting it into yours, considering it was glued in with JB Weld! :thumbsup
