I've been wanting to build a good quality iron man helmet for a while now, and quarantine has finally given me the time to finish. I 3d printed a master on my ender 3 and built 3 molds to cast the parts. I then painted everything with and Iwata Neo airbrush and createx colours. Overall I'm pretty happy with the project, the painting can use some work but in the right lighting I get the burgundy mk3 look I was going for. I'm now saving up for a Creality cr 10s pro v2 to hopefully cut down on gap filling for future projects.

Would appreciate any suggestions for what helmet to build next, ideally one I can cast with just one glove mold. Also any suggestions for a decent cheap spray gun I can use once it gets warm enough to paint outside again.

This is also my first post so apologies if this is in the wrong spot, just wanted to share!

love the weathering, it definitly adds to the piece. out of curiosity if this was a meant for a single 1 off project, why mold and cast it as opposed to finishing the print itself?
