    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;)

    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

    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
