    not many mark II's out there. It gets a lot of props around the net from what I see. People seem to really dig it.

    The mark 3 and the mark 2 are the exact same. The only difference from the movies is the different metal used....... and of course the paint!! I like the mark 2..... if it is done right.

    Yep Mark2 is exactly the same deal just paint which if done correct will runn you approx 5X as much as the Mark3. And a whole lot of rivets, 51 in the helmet alone that is what I have in my Helmet castings anyway. ;)

    Hi!

    If you want to do my helmet don´t use that one, use this one instead of that, this is the V4 and is based on cg files, so it´s the most accurate one ;)

    helmet v4.0.zip


    Here is a pic of it ready to resin

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And about mk2 or mk3 I´ll say mk2, there is no a lot of it and when you want to change you can paint it as a mk3 with some battle damages ;)

    But to do it proper you would need to counter sink the rivets a fraction not just paint them on or put rivets ontop. The rivets were supposed to be aircraft rivets which are not a reg type, a variation of this type (the countersunk ones)
    SOLID ALUMINUM RIVETS from Aircraft Spruce

    To get this type of effect.

    For the movie, I was under the impression that the "rivets" on the suits were just painted or scuffed areas to look like rivets.

    ...I seem to remember that on some behind the scenes video. Or maybe I dreamt it.

    It almost looks like the abs are different between the 2 and 3, may just be the picture.

    Check this out, it just looks like they just used a Dremel-like tool to sand a swirled pattern into the top layer of paint:

    The making of IRON MAN the Armor. - YouTube (Starting around 6:09)

    They even say it's just the illusion of a polished rivet. I may not be dreaming after all! (For once)

    Ah look at that. It was exactly what I was going to do with my build but decided once it was vac metalized or painted with chrome paint the divets created by the dremel bit would vanish.

    your helmet is perfect finhead!!! but if you see the first pic (mrk II) the rivets on the chest seems to be on top perhaps the pic is not from the movie suit:confused
    definitely i will build version II

    i can't find good pics from mark II i mean the rivets of the whole suit

    Your pic is a CGI render I believe for the the video game, same with the Mark3 you have posted. Here is another pic of the real Mark2 suit. They are def not raised rivets they are as Nick showed just a cut below the surface or a mark if you will. Mine are appox .5mm below the surface as paint will fill this a bit. Either way a lot of work to do rivets in a full suit, I will be doing it as a personal project but not doing molds etc.

    It is for sure a render used to have the full size of that pic it's blocky once blown up to full scale. Just not sure what it was done for.
    Afraid not on more pic, I lost my HD a few weeks ago and lost about 3 gig's of reference for the Mark1, Mark2 and Mark3. :unsure Only had that and the close up shot in my online pics folder.

    my helmet has the back still attached but I cut the jaw off..
    might be an idea for you if your helm still doesn't fit.

    the sanding looks good, details are the hardest part though good luck with that.

    Are you thinking ahead for the molding or are you going to mold it as it is in the last set of pics? It looks awesome but needs some detail lines cut in. If you search the net for smooth-on they have video tutorials on their page and youtube is full of people making molds of different types of helmets, especially Halo.

    The helmet is coming along great.

    Did you do the face plate and helmet separately or all as one piece then cut out the face plate?

    Helmet is starting to take shape nicely. Two questions though, why not cut the bottom back section out? And why such deep grooves in the top?

    updating work

    guys have some questions i made the forearm but have some problems :wacko

    i made two forearms
    i asked dancingfool and he told me the files are bigger for me i am 172cm tall so.... i've scaled using stealth advice the result: really small the hole but the armor is ferfect for me. so i made the pice in dancingfool's scale (original size)

    the trouble is that i have bigger hands lol and the hole is small
    any advice?? or i will have to cut my hands:unsure:unsure:lol

    [​IMG]

    this is with dancingfool's scale i bigger for me but my hand i can't take it off:eek

    Hey Scorpion,
    Just enlarge that last strip (before the wrist). Cut it again at the joint and figure an extra piece of paper to get your hand through it.

    Be careful how you built that forearm .. the roundisch part over the forearm shouldn't get out that much .. check the shape in the software properly and you'll see what I mean.

    thanks for the advice bigturc!! i was going to cut the forearm in two pieces:lol:lol about the top part... yep you are right i'll have to re work it

    well i've used the original scale for the helmet for the suit i am using dancingfool's files i'm not going to change the scale because really i don't know how to do it to fit my person..... total ñewbie:cry dancing's files are made to fit a 6' tall and i am 5'6 so I shall see as a puppet:lol i was going to build the suit for me but my idea is selling the costume and most people are taller than me

    helmet measures

    height: 265mm
    witdh: 186mm
    depth: 264mm

    sorry for my bad english hope all understand what i'm saying :unsure

    If your 5'6" you should use whatever files you can find that Stealth resized, just look through his threads. He is 5'7" so they should be the perfect size already.
