Hi everyone

Been wanting to build an ARC REACTOR for our soon to be made suit and wanted this version...


Most Arc Reactor I've seen here is Mark 1 and Mark VI version... I wonder if someone already made the above photo version:confused...

I have only few reference photos on this and will really appreciate additional photo reference from anyone who would like to share...

Thanks in advance and we'll start building this baby soon...;):thumbsup

cheers!

Re: Ironman 2 MKIV Arc Reactor - New Project!

If your wanting something that will be accurate for the suit (guessing a mark3or4 suit) you would want a unibeam not an arc reactor. You only see the unibeam when he is in suit, the arc is behind it. ;)

Pretty sure the unibeam looks like a bright white light, lol... but then again I am not sure.

Is it just me or does that version of the reactor look like it has a lot less going on inside it than seen in the first film??

As I said that is all I have at the moment, lost all my pics in a HD crash a few weeks back. If you look you'll find lots more, it's very detailed piece and would be super hard to get accurate at all.

It really looks intimidating to make... we'll try our best... a 90% accurate will be our baseline target...;)

thanks again:thumbsup


thanks j0wE... much appreciated:):thumbsup

UPDATES

We proceeded on making this Arc Reactor... then make the Unibeam later... besides, its the arc reactor that powers the unibeam...lol:lol

Anyway, we haven't seen much reference of this type of arc reactor nor any member made one...

So on to the drawing board and made a good old-fashioned sketches for dimensional references...;)

Since I really dont have more detail references on this, I just let my imagination/creativity kicks in...:D:thumbsup

Then proceeded to parts preparation...


I got a plumbing material from a local hardware store...

And put some details on it...:love:thumbsup


This one comes from, I think a speaker cover just laying around the shop...


Then I got the lens from a Flashlight...


A lid of a can...


Cut me a 6mm thick clear acrylic tube/pipe...

Frosted the surface by wet sanding it using fine grit sand paper...

A small flashlight reflector...

Put it all together...


Not much of an accomplishment, but its getting there... Looks quite good already...:love:thumbsup


Now to proceed on the rest of the parts...

Hope to have a pretty good accuracy on this build:confused... so if there's anyone who has high def reference photos of this type of arc reactor, kindly share it to us... we'll appreciate it so much...:):thumbsup

comments and suggestions are highly appreciated...

thanks for watching and for your time...

Dude. I'm quite sure (in fact 100% sure) that the unibeam refers to the repulsor beam he blasts from his chest. What's on his suit there is still the reactor, just covered up and with it's power being diverted into the suit by the mechanisms that you showed some pictures of.

I dunno man but this kinda explains what a unibeam is...Unibeam - Marvel Movies Wiki - Wolverine, Iron Man 2, Thor

cheers!


Love the work, it is coming out very nicely.

For some reason this image reminds me of a clutch plate for some reason.

Dean
thanks man:)... and yeah, it looks similar with a clutch plate... lol:lol

Re: Ironman 2 ARC REACTOR WIP - SOME PARTS PREPARED!!!

I found another photo reference for this arc reactor...


So from this photo I proceeded to make the rest of the parts... and assemble it...:):thumbsup

This is the best effort we can do so far...

All were hand-crafted... no machining involved...

I'm still thinking if I have to paint the light gray part and make it metallic dark gray color... or leave it as it is... please help me decide guys... kindly let me know what you think...



I still need to tweak it some more to get a good movie likeness (accuracy rating)... then will proceed with the lightings...

A single super bright LED will be installed powered by watch batteries 3x1.5V...

Comments and suggestions are highly appreciated...

Thanks for watching and for your time...:):thumbsup

cheers!
