REALISTIC REPULSOR BLAST LIGHT AND SOUND on PAGE 4


Hey Guys...

Almost everyone is into FOAM Ironman build right now... so we cant think of a more logical thing to do but to jump in to the FOAM band wagon... lol:lol

Since most Foam Ironman builder started with all the big pieces, my brother on the other hand (literally) started on the gauntlet...:)

He used zabana's pep file (thanks man:):thumbsup) just removed the tabs...

Here are the WIP photos:

He used 2mm EVA foam

Laid out the patterns...


Made the whole palm assembly

Joining 2 layers of 2mm foam to achieve the right thickness on the palm... He used contact cement or rubber cement to join the 2 layers...
For other parts he used super glue...

Then came the thumb...

The index finger...

He temporarily attached the finger parts using masking tape...

A bit of test fitting...



Then the middle finger...

And finally the complete fingers done



It turned out quite good though he found many things to be improved...

Next (left gauntlet), he'll try to use the FOAM pep patterns provided by stealth...

I'll be sewing the fabric gloves that will go underneath this foam gauntlet...

After that will be the installation of the repulsor...:love

Comments and suggestions are highly appreciated...

Thanks for watching... cheers!

Re: Ironman FOAM Gauntlet WIP - our very 1st Foam build

can you put it on without cracking it open?
i made mine out of paper, and after glueing it together and resining it, i cant fit my hand inside anymore as its to tight

so, actually im asking: does it stretch enough to get the hand in or do you have to have an opening on the side

currently, it has an opening on one side (thumb side)... but we are actually considering to make it whole and just try to squeeze our hands in... still TBD:)

Just a tip, super glue is not good for foam, I am building my ironman armor with foam and was using hot glue, then to speed things up I did the shins with superglue, however the superglue joints would crack, and I had to redo both shins using hot glue. Apart from the superglue thing, I think you have done awesome I love the look, well done.

The hand looks great! Great detail. I agree with familyman, I've heard superglue for foam builds tend to crack and come loose after a while - haven't tried it personally though

edit: Are the top and lower palms 1 piece? or are they glued together between the fingers?
