Hi guys. Just thought id post up my IM build. This is just an update on how far i progressed and basicly just wanted to share it with you all.

This is my first ever build so bare with me :p

First of just wanna thank Stealth, Xrobots, Drack for their tutorials and JFcustom for the foam files.

This is what i got so far.







I also have the hip pods, hand plates, spine and neck piece but ill post those once its all painted up. I was thinking if i should go with plastidip or plastic coating. Ill prob go plastidip with this build and see how it turns out.

For the foam i used plastazote LD45 for the entire suit apart from the helmet. The rest is prob same or similar to what other people use so no point posting it.

I have been amazed at some of the stuff that i have seen and now im just happy to be a part of this community.

Jo.

Re: Iron man (remade chest and back)

So i changed my mind and thought id go with the mark 4. While only the chest is different i also remade the back cus those were the first 2 pieces i made. However they did have a few flaws so now im happy i did so




Now just need to attach the parts, add detail, seal, paint. Also making a new helmet from foam incase i wont be able to finish my resin one. Now im just waiting on more stuff to arive so i can continue...

Re: Iron man (remade chest and back)

I thought the mark 4 was just basically a slightly slicker version of the mark 3?



Excellentwork so far, btw. It looks really really good. ;)

Looks fantastic. I'm jumping to plastazote myself after seeing some of the builds with it. I've been working with EVA, but the cleanest builds seem to be using plastazote.

Re: Iron man (remade chest and back)

Hi, This build looks really good and I have seen some others that are also verry nice and it makes me want to build one too... Now I'm from Belgium too and my question is how can i get my hands on plastazote D45... I also would like to start with the head. Any advice on where to get the propper material (I have the templates from stealth's website)? It would be a lot of help to get started :) thx in advance!

Re: Iron man (remade chest and back)

Also getting a bit closer now to a helmet :p
Decided to actually make a mold from my foam helmet cus i would prefer to have a cast and wanted to give it a shot.

Will try to have a cast this weekend so i can start working on detail etc.
Also waiting on Docholiday's gloves wich will be great!

Main goal still is for a con in October. Suit will def be ready altho if helmet isnt ill wear the foam one as a last resort :D

Really clean work, I really like it. One question: have you tried it on? I only ask because the waist looks really small compared to the chest, so i'm curious how it fits.

Keep up the good work and the updates!
