    Hello everyone! Being the first post I've made, I believe that I should introduce myself. I am Gregory Pastor-Hall, I'm 13, and i'm making a iron man suit replica and i decided to join the forums to seek advice and to prosper beyond my own limits in my design capability. This post will currently have the cardboard practice model and if that goes well i'll move onto the real foam replica.

    Here's What I Have So Far(Chest):

    It's always encouraging to see the young'uns starting into prop/costume making:) The cardboard you're using is not the best for cutting and getting straight lines. That said it's a mock-up as you've mentioned. It's also good to see what kind of everyday household product you could use to do that reactor rim. Look around you and you'll discover treasures!
    Keep on trucking, it's the only way to improve. Eager to see your next update.

    A great start, don't get discouraged by hiding this post. Search other threads and read, read, read. YouTube tutorials are helpful as well. Like Joberg said lots of treasures to be discovered here. GO MAN GO
