    Hey, ive been watching a lot of iron man builds on the forums and i finally decided to start on my own iron man armor.
    Im gone build the Mark VI using the foam templates provided by STEALTH (thanks for them :D)
    i need to adjust the parts to fit my body since i'm 6.5 ft.

    i've got some experience using foam i recently made an Ventus armored suit from KH BBS ( I just called it an armored version of Stitch) for a friend of mine

    For this build im gone use camping mats (5mm thickness) and i think i will seal it using woodglue.

    i hope to start after Christmas with my build.

    First off that looks great. As far as how long this takes. I would assume that depends on how dedicated you are and how much time you want to spend on it per day.

    It's easy to get burned out fooling with it to much, you will reach near completion and just give up, so it's a good idea to pace yourself. With the exception of an event upcoming that you have a goal to reach. Always good to have a goal to keep you going.

    This is really awesome! Exactly what part of the armor requires the camping mats as opposed to the craft foam?
