    hi all, this weekend i started doing the captain america sheild pep (which i've done :)).. and then got it on my brain to start doing the Thor costume...its gonna be a massive task i reakon, but worth it...it took me about twelve hours to get where i have with the right arm gauntlet...and still have a few little bits to do to it...but hope what ive done so far meets approval :)

    hi mighty thor...i'm no good with scailing if i'm honest...i'm 6ft 6ins and of average build...i have a mannequin of the smae size of my torso...attached it to that for when i'm ready to fibreglass...added a little bit more length near the stomach..i'm now hoping that its gonna fit lol.....

    hi mystery, i'm wanting to get the left gauntlet and shin guards done before i fibreglass...but it should look amazing when its done, also steering towards doing a foam ironman..but with my height and lack of scaling knowledge i fear it wont fit...so looks like it'll be standing free in my flat...always wanted a home with superhero suits standing around though...captain americas sheild is ready to fibreglass etc though...that'll look sweet on my wall :)
