    Hey crafters,
    My next build is looking to be the Mk 21. image.jpg This is intended to be a mostly movie-accurate suit, with animatronic weapons and such (3D printed probably). After extensive research, I have a couple questions about the armor itself.
    1: This suit is just a repaint of Mk 7 right?
    2: Anybody know if this suit has any weapons systems, being a specialty suit?
    3: The paint job is three different shades of gold and a bit of silver right? Any ideas about the paints types?
    4: And lastly, strictly opinion based, which of the like three sets of Mk 7 FOAM files are the best cross between moderate difficulty and accuracy, or which did you like the best?

    Thanks for reading!
    This will probably turn into a progress thread in due time, AKA when I'm done with Mk 3 :)

    1: Yes it would appear to be just a repaint
    2: No clue
    3: Gold, Copper, and Silver from what I could tell
    4: Someone else would need to answer this


    I thought about making or having one of these made. It is a very distinct coloration versus the red and gold.

    Good luck with the build!

    So in the hot toys version it looks like Mk 7 helm but apparently the version on the link has the "Thin-chinned" helm instead, as well as the silver centurion neck. Having a different armor neck while the rest of the suit is Mk 7 seems odd to me. Maybe just a mistake on the list. Thoughts?

    I'd just go with a reskinned Mark 7. The difference in the neck and helmets is so minimal I wouldn't worry...unless youre a perfectionist

    My thoughts exactly :) I am a bit OCD, but I'll just say I'm doing off of the Hot Toys model, just for the heck of it ;)
