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.
mate your grand mother is a trooper for putting that on. so far it looks great.
Remind me to not mess with your grandma.
You're very handy. Look forward to seeing your works completed.
Very cool project.. Did you make the 3D pepakura your self? Either way very cool to se how you go about this. And your only 15? Wow.. And even better you got an IronGrandma
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
Wow. Absolutely amazing work. Can't wait to see it finished
Buxzzix. You are crazy awesome bro. 15 years old and making your own Iron Man costume. Your grandmother is awesome too! I can't wait to see more progress bro
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.
First try with left shoulder bell
gr8 job man keep it up
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!
Im using normal Cardstock paper. Hmm... You dont know how to make paper-mache? Srry i dont understand your question. Can you reply to this topic. Greetings from my site.
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!
