Nearly a complete redo of my original Iron Man Movie Mk I. Thanks @1andonly5711 for the push to risk tearing the base joints apart to build a more articulated armor.

A repaint of my prior version using Model Masters Acryls and Gundam Markers. I added a lot of paint detail that I didn't do in the first go.

Heated, cut and pulled apart the stock neck, elbow and knee joints and replaced all with Revoltechs. I had to do a bunch of sculpting using Apoxie sculpt to fill in the joint housings. The base was a real pain at times requiring a lot of extra dremeling. Used one of the extra Revoltech heads I had for the "unmasked" look.

Finally I redid the hot glue flamethrower effects by sculpting the glue around wire ties and more Revoltech joints, then carefully painted with washes and dry brushed coats to emulate transparencies.

Very happy I took a second shot at this one. Thanks for looking and criticism is appreciated. God Bless!

*Edit* Forgot to add that the rocket launcher was made from an M-203 grenade launcher from one of those Kalashnikov rifles that came with many Hasbro ML figures, half of a Revoltech peg, and a retooled missile from the ML Galactus series War Machine.

Thanks a bunch for the support man! I wanted to go for a cross between the flames from the official Revoltech release and my previous one.
