    Hughs Odst Build

    Hugh, I read somewhere in the forums that you mentioned building a judge gabranth suit. Do you have any base models or releases yet on that build? I'm dying to make one, but without a vacuformer, pepakura is my only option, and the game models are WAY too low-poly to do anything with. Sorry to...

    Iron Man Mark 6 Hd Pepakura Project

    Is there a specific tutorial SOMEWHERE about servoing up and hinging the faceplate? I see so many pictures but I'm totally unsure of where to start!

    Flex Foam It 25

    Great work! But...I also have a question. So when you fill the mold halfway, it expands, and then you drill it out to make it hollow? Is that how it works? I noticed you said to slush cast it, but how to do do that "halfway" in an irregular mold? Thanks! Ixius

    Iron Man Molded Suit

    I sprayed the mold with ease release 200 after sealing it with paint, then cast it in Smooth Cast 300. Removed the mold with a good ol' mallet and chisel. Things like the gloves and neck which had to be flexible were, believe it or not, made from foamies! Wish I had knew about them earlier, they...

    Iron Man Molded Suit

    Sadly, the mold broke about 5 times and was made from plaster. Most of my time was spend salvaging the mold and repairing it with plaster, as it became a waste mold. I don't have pics... :( Hence why the piece looks like it's been banged up a bit. However, the ab sculpt can be viewed above...

    Iron Man Molded Suit

    Well all, it has been a LONG time since I've been on the 405th...mostly due to laziness and a huge amount of work. But, I DID complete my Iron Man costume! Sorry there are no progress pics, but I became consumed by the project! I just debuted it at Otakon 2009, posted here are some pics. It's no...

    Iron Man Molded Suit

    Thanks for the comments! I was thinking about casting it in urethane rubber, but since my budget is tighter I think I'll just stick to resin and fiberglass. I won't be wearing it all day long, after all :p And as far as the tape goes, I put on a SMALL coating of resin about 6 times for...

    Iron Man Molded Suit

    The movie costume didn't actually have any bend or flex between the codpiece and the abdomen area, it was just one connected piece. However, they cast it out of a flexible urethane plastic that had some give for the stunt actors who wore it. I'll be cutting it in half and then will affix a...

    Iron Man Molded Suit

    Hey again, New progress, I added some detail to the front codpiece as well as some major overhaul on the back. It still needs some major smoothing, but like I said, that will come later. Here's a few pics: Some of these lines remain slightly off, but again, it's just clay. Next post will...
