For now here you got a pic of the first pull ,you wil see its messed up ^^ but like i said before it was just to test the vactable out .

So you applied a layer of body-filler on top of the base, and just sanded it smooth/into shape?
I'm making some pauldrons at the moment and was thinking of doing this on top of a paper mache base, but was unsure if it would work.

Terrific work btw, very impressive!

yeah that is basicly it so you need some good sanding skills for smooth detail , but the key is to keep trying ^^ , it should work on the paper mache if its hard enough to support the bodyfiller.

Just to clarify-because I'm antsy and reeeally wants to start on my suits-You said you used pepakura and bondo,yes?Did you use that for your initial mold and use it as the vacuform base?Or are you attaching the plastic to the pep/bondo piece?
And do you think the armor would hold up with JUST pep and bondo?I am minus access to a vaccuform table so if that would be strong enough that would be spectacular.

Also,did you use a pre-made pep file or make this one custom?If there are files for Iron and War Machine,link please?

Just want to say that the Iron Man is looking pretty amazing, and it looks like a lot of work was put into it.

But to be super knit picky, something about the red seems a little bit odd to me. It seems to look like a flat red, but in the movie, it had kind of a brushed aluminum look.

It may be dead on in person though, and the camera may be having trouble picking up all color details, but with how much work is going into it, I just figured the paint may be worth mentioning.

hey there i use pep only for base , the rest i do with bondo when that proce is done we put it on the vactable to pull it on plastic , the helmets we mold, there are some Im files on 405th.com

Alright. I've only ever made one fully body suit before, I made Canti [flcl] for my boyfriend and I wanna re-do that... eventually. I've learned a lot of 'what not do to' for next time I'm ever put to such a challenge.
And well, I was put to the challenge again and now he wants and IronMan suit. I wanna try making it from molds and vacuum forming but... I have no idea where to go for any of that stuff or even how the heck to do it or what I'm supposed to do. Soo... any links and advice would be awesome.
