    Hi everybody,
    I'm new to the forum and love looking at all the creations by everybody. So for the premiere of AOU, I made a Mark 43 forearm using abb eliten's files (big props to him). This has been my first first prop. I plan on taking this to the premiere and the STL comic-con next month. I'm a little hard on myself but due to some paint and finishing issues, I don't think it looks as good as it could have been. I'm a computer programmer on the outside so I did arduino stuff with it with some adafruit neopixels for the replusors. It may or may not have sound by the time comic-con rolls around (was having some wiring issues with the soundboard I have). To brighten and dim the neopixels, I used some everyday tilt ball switches, they are simple and they get the job done. For my finishing issues, i bought some XTC-3D after the fact...I've thought about re-doing it but don't have the time. After Comic-con, I plan on doing a Mark III helmet and the arms as I will have a little more time on my hands. To add to this, I've big into computer modding and have done some competitions in the past, the computer I made a couple years ago was based on the Mark V. I've also done a Dark Knight mod as well.
