    Hey guys! So I decided to try foam and see how I liked it and move away from body filler and fiberglass for a little bit. Just got the chest put together, what do y'all think?

    Indeed it has! Got a little of the back done. Been playing tennis tournament all day and then all day tomorrow. And my 1/6th scale Spider-Man came into today so I had to play with it for a little bit.(;

    Got the neck done tonight as well. The back is a little rough, but since this is a fast build I believe it is ok. Thoughts?

    Man, do you sleep? That's a lot in a short while. By the way, that cod looks terrible. I'm no fish expert but I'd never eat that! ;)

    Right? I tried the COD and it tasted like foam!(; I get about 5 hours a night. I do, school, tennis, then build. It's a speed build hope to have everything glued together by the 16th of this month.

    The forearms are done. Not the best looking, but they'll work! (Keep in mind this is a fast build.)

    Got the shoulders done! I can't believe how well this speed build is going! Any suggestions to remove hot glue from the foam?

    Thick drops you can easily remove by laying your razor flat on the foam and then 'saw' them off.The rest I wouldn't worry about,since you have to seal your foam with PVA woodglue anyway before plastic-/rubbercoating it (my opinion).
    Great speedbuild so far !

    I know what you mean...it's all new,right? Well,you have to start somewhere,and so did many members before us.
    All you can do is inform yourself as good as possible (you're in the best forum for that),and then get started :thumbsup
    Have faith in the knowledge you've acquired and the enthusiasm that got you here in the first place.Now get crafting ! Looking forward to your next photos ;)

    Push-LEDs:
    View attachment 463864
    Then add speaker wire between the battery pack and LED construction to be able to extend the battery pack into the forearm

    So got the left shin done today. Right shin tomorrow. Thoughts? I left some things open so air could get in while wearing the suit. (Keep in mind this is a speed build.)

    Hey guys! So I have plasti-dip on everything and starting the primer! I have a question: I need fingers. I know they are hassle to make so does anyone know where I can buy cheap ones or an easy file for them?

    Look under "JFCustom foam files​" thread page 1,and pick any iron man suit zip file.There's a hand file in every single one of them.

    So I am almost done painting. I wiped out all the auto stores Dark Cherry Metallic Dupli-Color in my town. So I have to wait till Thursday to continue painting..... Everything is looking nice. I decided not to close off the gaps, because I feel like it gives a certain look. I like it.

    I did build a repulsor yesterday myself. Never did any wiring and soldering before but it was pretty easy. I'm thinking of improving my method and making an easy tutorial for all the beginners out there :)
