    Dec 11, 2009, 8:02 AM - Iron Man Armor #1

    Hi! My name is Bartek, I am 15 years old and im living in Poland. Few days ago I started to build an Iron Man Armor. I already have some parts of this suit. Please give me comments and advices.






    Now I'm doing Chest, Back and Forearms. They will be ready in two days.

    Looking good! One thing about Iron Man armor, is that it is very close-fitting. Essentially, every part needs to be snug around your arms, legs, chest, waist, and head. I think the bicep is too big, but the shoulder bell is perfect. Though it is hard to tell without the rest of it. The edges around the top and bottom of the bicep are just there for support, so if they make the part too tight, just cut them to fit better.

    P.s. My helmet is free now, so if you want a smoother build, get the file here.

    I think the bicep is also a large, but you know I grow up


    UPDATE

    I used my grandma as a dummy


    Now I'm doing helmet, stomach piece and crotch piece. These parts will be ready in a few hours. When they have finished I give an update.

    UPDATE. I'm making Arc Reactor. Tell me what you think
    The reactor is made from nuts from the jar. It is very slim. I'm going to put it in my armor

    Yes. I have only 15 years old You know, some 40% of these are not my parts. I am doing most of them by myself. Examples include the spine and moving gloves il do the same. My printer is broken so I can not print PEP files. Now I am bracing, detailing and painting armor.

    PS: I am honored that such a person like you wrote a post on my topic.

    You can see a black cardboard and a lot of brown paper inside torso piece.


    PS2:Sorry for my English who is not too good

    I love this thread. Buxzzix, you are awesome. I am very impressed. I've seen this pepakura file and it is not an easy one. You are going a great job.

    Question, what paper are you using to pepakura with? Cardstock, or regular printer paper? How does it hold up to paper-mache? Anyway, killer work! and awesome grandma you've got!

    Sorry, kinda bad way to phrase my question. I was wondering if when you lay the mache on, does the paper start to sag and bend on you? That's what I was asking, and 2 more things. How hard does that stuff dry? Is there flex in the piece? of is it solid? And do you mache the inside, outside, or both? Thanks for advising, never considered using trhe stuff... got a whole container in the basement though. and I must say, you work is amazing! keep it up!

    This stuff when dry is very hard. If you make 3 - 5 layers, IT IS VERY VERY VERY HARD. You can sanding, drilling and painting this. Parts are hard and almost nothing bend.

    PLAN HOW I WILL WEAR THE CHEST PIECE
