This looks truly amazing!! Just spotted this and took it from his site.STUNNING!
The Replica Props Forum. They use program called Pepakura to unfold 3d model to flat pieces, print them on home printer and assemble paper model of the suit in scale 1:1. They glue it, reinforce with fiberglass, sand and fill holes hundreds of times make this real, beautiful, wearable object. I want to make it for myself, but still not sure if I will be able to devote half a year of my free time for a single project. Instead of this I decided to make 2 munnies and see if that will fulfill me on Iron Man theme.
It started as realistic, symmetrical and boring face. I started enlarging eyes, bending nose and modified it to look little more like caricature. I was not sure if it will look right till I painted him. After I was pleased with this stage I could proceed with the rest of the body because I knew I will not abandon this project. I wanted to make the suit as detailed as possible. I sketched it on the figure, then drew the pieced on computer, taking measures with Caliper and then used laser cutter to cut the pieces in styrene. It helped me to keep the suit symmetrical and details have good, sharp lines. The pieces were small so it was easy to bend them and superglue it to munny’s body.
