Thanks to Spiderskater3 for his awesome yet obvious recipe I found on YouTube. A simple repaint to add more golden aspects to the Iron Man Movie Mark I armor, albeit I added my own accessories flavor. I chopped a pistol upper from a 3.75" gun for the left flamethrower, sculpted the rocket booster/missle launcher button using fodder, then drilled out receiver fixtures for the flames. Hot glue flame effects were sculpted around revoltech joints (God, can I do this trick enough times!?! Can't help it; it's fun and looks awesome!). As with the other early-issue Iron Man I did, I painted the beige/tan joint areas with Citadel Iyanden Darksun. I had to again grind some of the joints to prevent rubbing. Next, I applied some light dry brushed DecoArt Gold Metallics and several washes of Citadel Devlan Mud wash. The flames were based with Model Masters Acryl Red and Insignia Yellow. As Stark says while exiting the cave: "MY turn!" Thanks for looking and God Bless!

Man this is awesome

Thanks a bunch man! Ironic timing on your comment--I just broke this fig out last night again to start working some Articulated Comic Book Art shots with him. Articulation on this build leaves much to be desired, but the base sculpt is nice.

Have you tried revolt joints
Dr.Zom - Friday, October 18, 2013
I've thought about it but this armor is pretty hard to come by and the plastic isn't very flexible so I'm a bit wary to try it!

Well taking risk is what we all do with customs

Quite true my friend! maybe one of these days I'll give it a spin. Think I even still have some silver grey joints...

I love the fact that you used revoltech joints for the flames, awesome touch and looks great man

Thanks Shapp! Since Cosmic and Count introduced me to them, I've found so many uses--from repair jobs to joint mods and adding articulation, they really work nicely!

The flame effect looks awesome! Also, the custom looks so much better than the factory version. Keep up the great work!

Impressive!!! All around Awesomeness!!!

As always, I appreciate the kind words. I tried very hard to do a unique paint blend so as not to completely rip-off spiderskater3's piece that inspired me Getting the edges of the flames to "dance" was tricky; I ended up doing a rough zig-zag glue mold and trimming around that with scissors and finalizing the "sculpt" by carefully allowing the tips to cool slightly then pulling the gun away slowly.

Wow, dude! You got it down to a science! I admire that!
