I have lurked around here for a while and have even posted a few things and sold a few items to others (who I hope still enjoy the items lol) and wanted something for myself. I decided on Ironman and with the help of another forum member ahave pretty much the entire upper section of the suit already. Now I have started to paint the suit itself and as you can see below it is not too bad I think.

There are some tiny inmperfections but for a first time it not bad.

As I am very very new to this any comments/advice would be welcome

Thanks.....

Re: First ever proper build and decided to tackle Ironman

Can anybody give me advice on how to connect this all together. I am thinking of buckles and webbing strap to connect the upper armour but have no idea of the best way to secure it to the armour..

I decided to use Nissan Flame Red and Nissan Metallic Gold. Both awesome colours and works well on the grey primer.

Well I have moved on and have now begun on the ab and back pieces, including the cod piece. These were cast in foam material to help with movement. I will attach them by 2 zips, one on either side. Again this will allow me to put the suit on myself, which is my ultimate aim with this build.
