Hi all, I picked this figure up at the Telford IPMS show two years ago, it was pre painted and a simple push fit together kit. I wanted to see if I could add some lighting and bring it to life, not an easy project as the body was not completely hollow but made up of complex moulded chambers, however with a bit of perseverance I got there in the end. I powered the 5 LED’s with a pp3 9v battery under the base. Iron man's head looked too small for his body and the back of the helmet looked more like a skull in shape, so I mixed up six layers of quick setting clear epoxy and built up the back of the head and neck to bulk out the profile. With a bit of battle weathering and a flat coat I think it turned out well.
Hi guys I'm looking at repaint my Dragon Models Iron Man and I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good paint to get that nice red metallic look. I'm not to fussed about the gold and silver I think I will look at the alclad colours although I welcome any advice on these as I've never really painted any kind of metallic look before thanks Sam
I have an obsession about Iron Man. I'm not sure what it is, possibly Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, I'm not sure. All I know is that I have what some may consider a strange obsession with him. I have built the Moebius Iron Man kit (MKVI) which I fitted with LEDs so that his hands, eyes and arc reactor lit up. I then built the MKVII by Dragon which didn't go so great, the paint was a little gloopy and I enjoy brush painting and tried to brush paint Iron Man but it didn't work out very well. He looks great from a distance but, close up, he looks a bit ropey. So, when the latest Dragon Iron Man appeared in my (semi)local modelshop, I couldn't resist. The MK XLII is an absolutely stunning kit. The pieces looked great even on the sprue when I opened the box in the shop. I don't have these pictures because I didn't think that far ahead at the time. The kit fits together nicely, the front body armour and back body armour took a little persuading when trying to click them together over the 'skeleton' but once I managed it, it looks great. One good thing about doing a few different Iron Man kits is that I was able to learn by trial and error of what worked and what didn't. I knew that brushes didn't give a clean enough effect. I have already said about my obsession with Iron Man so I wanted him to look good. I chose Tamiya sprays for MK XLII but did not spray the pieces before I assembly. I've realised since then that might have been a better idea. Any way, It's not far from finished but still requires masking on both legs and one arm and the spraying finished. Until then, here he is...Dragon 1/9 MKXLII Iron Man from Marvel Studio's, Iron Man 3. I hope you like him. I am buying more masking tape this weekend so I can finally get him finished.
Hi all, Don't really dip into Sci Fi that much but a colleague sent me a link to this 6th scale model Hot Toys Black Widow Mind blowing realism, it's almost frightening! Bit of a noobie question, is this the regular standard of figurines in this scale or is this an exception? At around £115 ex. post, is this a good price? Only asking as I've been watching the Avengers (the Marvel version!) recently and would like to do a bit of collecting. Thanks in advance!
