Default Iron Man armor WIP

Hi!

I want to share with all of you my creation, as you may guess is an iron man helmet, inspired in movie version one, I tried to do in the closer way I was able. At the moment I am at the molds point, my next step would be to paint and to do the negatives, after that I will make the first wearable helmet, probably with fiberglass and resin, because here in Malaga (spain) I donīt know were to find materials to do a cold cast one...

And now the pictures, please give me your impressions :



















Bye!!!

Thanks The Iron man, yes I am planning to do an entire suit, I know it is a lot of work, then Iīll go step by step, next thing to do are the Arc and the neck, after that the upper body, but I want to do with the abs separates to get maximun movements the armor would give.

Hi Everybody!!!

I am back with the first testing, it is not perfect but Iīm pretty happy with it, it would be wearable, but as I imagine I need to detach the chin zone from the rest of the head and something would nedd to be made to atach again, at least it would look like in the movie when the face is opened. And some pictures, the mould and the helmet:











Thats all by now, more pics when it were wearable or I made one to show painted like MK2 or MK3.

Byeeee!!!!

Iīm back with an update, now the helmet is wearable, to use it needs to be detached in 3 part the back-head, the face plate and the chin, I will produce to types of helmet the completed one to use in an stand or in 3 parts to wear, anyway both types can be converted in the another on. And now the pics.
















Well, now I will decide how atach all the pieces and will continue with the armor.

Byeee!!!

Anyway it fits so good for me as I wanted when was sculpted.

I didn't implement it yet, but I am planning for the chin something likes guides or neodimium magnets, and for the face plate a rotating system.

I will post pics soon

Hi again!!!

Itīs time to some updates.

I am near finishing the design for the face plate, this is the system I will use:



I need to decide yet if it will be manually , activated by a servo or a motor...

THe another update is that finishly I did the helmet with rigid polyurethane resin by rotational casting technik, itīs amazing now all the details and I am very happy with the finish product. It is good enough to try to sell any ( probably at ebay) to get some money to help paying all the costume and save myself from my girlfriend

Well, these are the pics ( and this is my little brother is with the fiberglass-resin old one), next time I hope could show the helmet completely done:















Byeee!!!!!!!

TMP, if you need a simple system for your helmet send me a PM, I would be happy sharing with you this desing and all the previous one if you need, why? Simple, we are here to enjoy and help each to others, isnīt it

And now the pics, as always, please, leave a little feedback with your comments :
