Hey guys so this is my first time doing anything like this, but I'm gonna give it my best shot. I will be doing an Iron man and War Machine suit for me and my buddy. After alot of research I decided to go with the pepakura fiberglass bondo method. I've already pepped a few helmets just to get the hang of it. I'll post a pic of the Iron Man helmet later once I redo it. I have to get my buddys measurements. Here's the War Machine helmet though :)
I'm not sure if this can help anyone,but I'm 5'3" (kinda small I know) I plan on wearing some lifts to help with the suit. Here's some measurement and what i used for my size.

Head-22" around 17 cm wide/ Helmet used default size fits snug

Neck- 14 1/2" around
Chest- 37" / Torso I used 1.4 scale which you can see in the pic I like the way it fits but limited movement with my head due to the closeness of the neck. I feel I may have to do some mods to it, but I do like this size. I originally built the torso at a 1.565 scale and it's way too big the bottom came almost all the way down to my waist.

Nice pep man, I'm working on a warmachine too, but the pepping takes ages for me xD How long did it take you to make that helmet (and which file did you use), so I will know if I'm just slow or impatient haha.

Re: Iron Man and War Machine Build

@markkNL I think I picked some hard parts to start on heh. I've done a few helmets and started pepping Zabana's hands soooo yeah heh. I'm not sure if I'm fast, slow or whatever. I feel I'm moving slow, but this one took me around 6 hours to do. The hardest time I have is trying to see the numbers, in the tight places it catches me up. All the files I got for the War Machine build are from this thread http://http://www.therpf.com/f24/war-machine-high-def-pepakura-team-up-113492/ I think I might have had to go to the 405th for some files, but it's basically the same thread. I can't remember where I got the Iron Man files, I believe they're all Robo's though.

Re: Iron Man and War Machine Build

Wtf 6 hours? I couldn't even cut out all the parts in 6 hours. I'm currently making the HD warmachine helmet though, don't know if that has more parts then this one

It had quite a bit. I don't have it in front of me right now but I believe it's in 4 or 5 separate pieces. The first helmet I did was dungbeetles iron man helmet and that took me around 7-8 hours. It took me about 4 hours to cut it out. Then the next helmet I did was the HD version Iron Man the sharkhead dubean version I think and it took me only an hour to cut out the pieces and maybe 4 to put it together. After building them a few times I kind of understand the layout more I suppose you could say. Like i figure what tabs I need and which I can do without or cut them a little differently. It's hard to describe exactly. I don't know if it helps that I'm an artist and have a pretty steady hand. I use an xacto knife to cut so I guess it's almost like outlining for me. Then I run over all the fold lines with the blade lightly so everything foldes a bit easier.

Re: Iron Man and War Machine Build

the mask looks awesome so far man! what kind of card stock did you use, because i see you just printed it straight onto the card stock. the way i'm doing it, i have to trace it on to the card stock and then cut it all out. the card stock i have right now is 110 lb card stock and is about 10"x24". this looks a lot simpler though.

Thanks I actually need to update with some new pics since I have alot done now. I printed it out on 110 lb card stock. Mine was 11 x 8.5 though so that might be where you have the issue. Just get smaller sized paper, but with that size alot of the templates need rearranging.

Re: Iron Man and War Machine Build

Your head is 22" did you build it at default scale and it fit you? Just curious as I want to make one myself with that file. My head is the same diameter
Thanks

Everything is looking good so far man.

Yeah I think I may put some supports in it to when I harden it just to widen it out at the top slightly near the eyes but yeah. Gonna have to flatten my hair out a bit too (haha I have a mohawk) but yeah I used the HD war machine helmet at the larger size.
