    Helm Construction

    [​IMG]

    Iron Man is sponsored by Thermaltake and MNPCTECH

    With only a few day left to finish the project by deadline,Im gonna get the helm constructed and mounted to the front bezel.

    [​IMG]

    I started by making a paper template and cutting out all the pieces and transferring them to 00.80 polystyrene.

    [​IMG]

    I secured all the pieces using weld-on adhesive.

    [​IMG]

    Modelers putty is added and finish sanding is completed.

    [​IMG]

    I also modded behind the mask too.

    [​IMG]

    I secured the helm using rivets to the front bezel. The helm will open on a hinge system with a compression spring.

    [​IMG]

    Time for paint and primer..
    First I layed down 2 coats of black primer,sanded then added redmetal flack over the entire helm.
    Next, I sprayed a flat aluminum,followed by gold.

    [​IMG]

    Gold is added over the top of flat aluminum and the masking is removed.

    [​IMG]

    Now Ill start on the painting and graphics behind the helm.

    [​IMG]

    Im using gunmetal,flatblack and flat aluminum to achieve a metal finish on the helms interior body.

    [​IMG]

    Some battle fatigue added.

    [​IMG]

    With the helm nearly complete, Ill mount it and add the LEDs.

    [​IMG]

    Here I added a Stark Industries vinyl graphic to the front bezel.

    [​IMG]

    With the helm mounted and the LEDs installed its time to bring Iron Man alive.

    [​IMG]

    8 LEDs are mounted behind the lens, and powered by a 12v molex pin.

    [​IMG]

    Just a few logos and details to finish up and is Iron Man Complete.

    Final pics coming soon

    Stay Inspired and Keep Creating!
