Hi guys,
after a lot of research I want to try to build my first Amory suit of iron man.
I love the mark V, but there are no pep files that I could found in web, so I will try to do what I can...
For now all what I did is from scretch and lots of pictures from tootle, the base for the chest is my old icehockey chest Amory and the material is foam and a yoga matte.

Its fits very well cause I can open it up as you can see in the last picture.

I hope I can finish this for karneval in Germany and I hope everything will work out what I do here...
ok that's enough for the first day

I'm from Zülpich, a little town 40km south-west of cologne.
it seems pretty far, but when it comes down to karneval, my heart beats for Kölle :lol

Today i figured out, Woodglue is a realy bad idea for sealing the foam!
it breaks and you can peel it off like dry skin after a sunburn....

but i found some old paint from my airbrushset and this paint is realy nice.
Without sealing after 2 coats it´s still flexible and bends with the foam, nice shine, waterprof and realy nice to work with.

you see it in the picture below.
the pic with the stripes show the red(befor) and black (after) painting
i orderet some more of this paint here:
JVR Colours, for airbrushing and pinstriping - AirbrushService.com

airbrush paint shouldnt chip. its the best paint out there for foam. i have it on my gundam legs and they are mint. no rubs, scratches or chips. myself, i use colorix.

ok, i finish the costume till karneval, it is not realy movie accurate but it was realy comfortable and it was good enough for the all the drunk peoples around.
I figured out that foam is not the best material for a costume if you are in a crowd of 10.000 drunk peoples :facepalm:sickcause all of them try to touch your helmet or pull on your chest , but they like it.

Next year i will try to make a better one like full plastic or what ever, stronger material then foam :love
