    Hello everyone,

    I was asked to make the MK33 - Silver Centurion Arc Reactor by a client and here are the results...

    So it started from some reference I found on the net and some provided by the client.

    I traced it via CAD to get accurate dimensions
    [​IMG]

    Then designed it... the thickness of the casing is important to prevent LED hot spot

    Made the parts...

    Proceeded to painting and assembly...

    I used gun-metal paint color for the element to resemble real metal look

    Clear acrylic glass on top

    That looks fantastic! The silver centurion has always been my favorite armor, it should really receive more love.

    Digging into details on the reference photos I saw some layering which are a bit subtle but still gives the arc reactor more depth and intricacy... I tried to copy it using a thin clear acrylic and here are the results....

    I cannot find a clear adhesive that will not affect the transparency of the acrylic so I just minimized the amount I put on it

    Will proceed on the electronics shortly.... cheers!
