    Couldn't you cut each piece out of metal instead then weld it? That would be cool. Alternatively you could use thin wood

    If you want to be realistic, of course !! ... but I prefer to start with cardboard and foam, then I will try to go to the next level;)

    That is not Mk 42 or 43

    Yes, it is,from ironman 3 and avengers age of ultron

    Not trying to be corrective at all sir. But, just so you know : iron man 3 is Mark 42... Which was destroyed. Avengers : Age of Ultron is mark 46, I think. But I know they're not the same

    Iron man 3 is mark 42,yes,and in Avengers: Age of ultron there are 3 Iron man suits...the 43, that is like the 42 but with other paint job,the 44 (hulkbuster),and the 45 in the final battle of the film....and the mark 46 is from Captain america:Civil war....;)

    That's awesome! I bet if you coated this bad boy in resin and used a little bondo you could have a Movie prop quality costume! food for thought, keep up the good work!

    did that with halo helmet costume last year. It came out awesome and kids loved it.. This time trying for the whole costume.

    when using bondo, make sure to aerate. That sucker has very strong after-odor

    Thanks man, I appreciate it ;)

    Do you have any pictures of the steps to make it?
