Hi everyone I'm new here...I did a mark 3 for halloween and this is what I have 90% complete
Made out of foam, cardboard, pringle cans, sculptamold, and a lot of hot glue..
Pringles cans? Do tell.
Hey cid just click the insert pics icon on your screen.......pringle cans are the arm and the wrist part of the armor...will post more pics of my building process, cery soon
oh good god these are amazing! great job guys, i just started working on one myself, using sintra
this is my first ever use of sintra, and im debating if i should boil it or use my oven, any suggestions?
Well I'm still here and kickin, although I haven't really done any new work on my Iron Man suit I did however make a new piece of armor which I wore for our annual Halloween party this year. Fret not for the Iron Man armor, as I have picked up some pieces to use with the costume as of recent which should help me better finish the suit.
Anyways, I figured I would put up my more recent project. Long story short, it was getting to be near the date for Halloween, and I had yet gotten a costume for it. Eventually I decided I had no interest in buying a costume, so I figured I would throw together a medieval gothic sort of chest plate using most of whats left of my 2nd Sintra board I had for my Iron Man armor.
So, I basically threw this thing together in a weeks time, 7 days to be exact, and somewhere between 2-5 hours per day work putting it all together. The worst part was the painting, as it was cold outside (spray painting in cold weather doesn't work so well in case you didn't know, paint tends to run and get blotchy) and very high winds. Several pieces I spray painted, then left to try, got picked up by the wind and blown onto the driveway or into the grass, causing chunks of dirt, grass, and debrit to get stick within the wet paint, and chunks of paint to get scraped off on the concrete. On top of that, the wind picked up tons of small pieces of dead grass and other foilage in the yard and blow it all over my wet painted pieces. Needless to say I did alot of sanding and repainting.
Anyways, here's the pics!:
For the first two pics we have some two-piece shoulder blades, the smaller being an unused attempt at a elbow piece for my Iron Man armor.
Next we have another unused throwback form the Iron Man Armor project, a sort of Shoulder Harness or Shoulder Rest to mount the chest and back pieces to, and shoulder blades:
Now, either the front or back plates riveted together from 5 seperate pices of Sintra to give a sort of "plated" look to the armor:
The Front and Back plates now attached to the Shoulder Harness (sorry for blurry pics!):
And last but not least, the near finalized armor piece which I wore at our Halloween party:
Still to be done is some cleaning up and touching up of the paint job, painting over the silver rivets to match the armor color, and a chest emblem of some sorts. I originally had some crazy skull looking piece I was going to attach to the chest piece and paint gold, but ran out of time to put it on before Halloween and also didn't fully like it (it came out too big). I also had a large celtic cross that I thought of cutting out in Sintra and painting gold and putting on the chest piece, but again ran out of time.
Any ideas or suggestions for what I could toss on the front chest piece (and possibly something for the back) are welcome! More than likely I plan for it to be a symbol painted in gold (always liked the black and gold motif) but any other color options are welcome too.
New to the site. Been working on a version of the Mark I armor for the past 3 months. It's slow but getting there. I was wondering if anyone knew of any files (pepekura of pdf) of a version of the Mark I armor. It doesn't have to be the movie version (mine isn't) but I'm having trouble doing the gauntlets and thought this may be an easy way to get the hands done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
There's a 3D file here but I think it needs unfolding:
...probably a good forum to look for plans though.
Wow you guys are insane! Nice suits everyone!
wow its been along time heheh, anyways im working on War machine concept for IM2 at the moment. here some pictures. still need to finish up on the base then i can add the major detail inwhich it will end up looking alot better from now ..
Heres the concept i want to build.
Concept helmet im working on, the minigun/valcan actually works "spins and will fire medium sized bottle rockets hehee ) "
Movie accurate Arc reactor
flight stablizer move as well
boots still need to be detailed and painted.
upper portion of the legs will not look the same after i detail it .
id say im about 80% finished with the base/foundation of the costume. The costume is made out of High Impact urethane plastic. not fiber glass or poster board . if you want to see more pictures click on the pics or goto my myspace.
things still need to be com[pleted
-motorized open and close helmet
-redo the concept helmet
-wire up a bottle rocket hehehe

Dude, you are so cool, that pretty soon, you will be able to have an epic battle with yourself!
Nice job on both suits.
I´m thoroughly impressed!!! I was stoked when I managed to make the dents for Boba´s chestarmor with sintra, this is a bit more complex... Hehe.
Very nice progress. I like the way it started over a year ago, and now you're doing War Machine! Absolutely commendable.
leg/pants armor update
keeping the armor closer to the movie then going with the concept. anyways man... using high impact urethane plastic can take a beating! i literally threw this thing at the wall, and hit it with a bat couple of times. and no damage what so ever. especially reinforcing up the rivets. little bit heavy, but not much "well to me its like holding onto your wallet barely noticeable", stronger then fiberglass and alot more flexible. wish i had some of this stuff when i first made my Iron Man . oh well warmachine is in dah house hehehe. hope everyone is enjoying my progress.
