    This is my Ironman MK1 helmet build from the first Ironman movie, I see so many of the newer version IM helmets so I decided I would do something diffrent and thats how I ended up making the MK1, I had my buddy JTM make me a model of the helmet for pep, I then unfolded it and ended up with this

    Since im not really good with scratch building I figured that a pep model would be an easier base to work off of, but after looking at screen shots and pictures of the actual helmet used in the movie I noticed that I had alot of modifying to get it some what screen accurate
    Looking at the side view of the helmet the top part of the front section and the top of the back section need to be sloped down quite a bit plus the weld lines on the front piece is wrong and also on the back so I will sand them off and make new weld lines
    this is just after hardening the pep and some minor grinding on the helmet

    A few days later and alot of sanding im finally getting the top sections sloped down some, these are pics with my helmet next to the actual screen used helmet for comparison

    And this is where im at as of now, almost got the shape to where it needs to be, also smoothed out the weld line on the front, my plans is to make it as close to the screen used helmet as I can[​IMG]

    Sorry for not posting all of my progress pics, the helmet is almost complete at the moment, I tend to just build and forget to take progress photos

    Im just building this helmet for fun I really don't plan to use the helmet for a costume or anything

    Hope to post more progress pics soon

    Update

    Been meaning to update this thread, I pretty much have the MK1 finished, well at least for now the master copy is finished, I still need to mold the helmet because it is nasty and really gross looking on the inside area and I really don't want to put this on my head, I wasn't planning on wearing this for any reason I made it to display, I gave it a silver paint job to get a feel for how it will look finished, I left the eye areas and mouth openings closed up, once I get a cast copy of the helmet I will cut those out and give it a better paint job to match the movie version helmet. the helmet does open up and is two pieces I was just lazy to take a seperate picture of the 2 halves seperated

    Well guess you want to see pics, will post finished pics of a casting soon
