Hey guys whats up? I joined this forum about a week ago and i have to say I'm very glad i did. i have found all the files i need thanks to robo. so far i have completed the chest and just printed out the back let me know what you guys think so far. unfourtunetly i am 6'6 so i have to scale the peices pretty big, my worry mas matching the chest and back after re-scale but i took the difference i had to make for the chest and did the same amount for the back so it should be right. i would like to thank CJ for the help on that. anyways here are the pictures so far. here is a link to all the ironman files done by robo http://www.therpf.com/f24/robo3687s-iron-man-pep-files-sd-war-machine-links-page-73-a-88147/

I think the default scale for robo's files were all the same, so scaling the same amount for each file should be ok. Some people might have changed them during unfold so be careful.

If you have any doubts, and a paid version of pepakura you could always check. The paid version of pepakura lets you export to .obj, which you can import into 3DS max or blender and check the scales and compare proportions.

Thats what I've been doing with a mixture of robo's and dancingfool's files.

I believe the cuff is suppose to be that way?? (Mine leaves lots of space like your last photo) I would finish building it. The part that goes around your wrist can be slid farther into the forarm to correct the length.

Best of luck, and keep up the good work!

i was thinking the same i just did the cuff and its pretty large as well but the scaling matches the bicep so im just gonna run a cylinder shaped foam piece around my arm underneath the cuff and that should work.

Re: iron-man MK Vl build

to save some time you may want to reduce your .DEG faces.. so you have lesser flat faces.. just noticed on your forearm has a lot faces.. but that might just be me good luck.

Nice work! Everything looks good

I'm currently working on Zabana's hand file and its a beast! So I would recommend doing the shoulders first.

i was messing around in setting one day and saw that, how low do you set yours?

zabana's hand is torture even though i did most of it.. i just ended up ordering his gauntlets =D.. but yeah i go around 165 or less.. too high then ur probably gonna have a hard time sanding all the edges that's not needed after you put bondo on there.. i say test it out since it will vary based on each piece some you may want more folds and others you don't.

Dude, just jump in head first on the hand. It's really not that bad. I did both palms/knuckles minus fiingers in a couple of hours
