How did you solve the icing problem?

That happens in the next iteration. He hasn't taken the plunge yet.

Too bad "Tony Stark" can't see this. I think he'd be so impressed (I am, that's for sure), that he'd invite you on set and let you examine and try out his suit.

Keep up the good work, and don't let lack of tig welding skills get you down. I have a good friend who's a welder by trade and he can't tig weld well.

I'm rather husky, unlike Rhodey. I can't wait to see what my suit will look like.

Thanks guys.

LOL! I love the picture above! :D

I only got ten minutes to work on this today. Here's a back view showing the seams all welded up, then ground back using an angle grinder and grind-wheel first, followed up with a flap disk.

Funny as s*** :D

Cleaning up the welds a bit more tonight. Getting the edges tidy on the cascading segments at the back of the helmet.

I've tried getting into these corners with a file, a flap disk, a Dremel and sandpaper. It's hard work and very slow going. Can anyone reccomend a good tool to get into this? An electric reciprocating mini-file would be awesome!

Metabo DSE 300 Triangular Sander
Bosch GDA 280E Triangular Sander

Metabo also makes a compact grinder GE710, but I have no personal experience with it but you can run a flexible shaft on it like a dremel but with far more power and the attachments last way way way more longer than a dremel

HTH, I really wanna see this build happen :cool:

U Welcome.

Also hang around the pc mods sites like overclock, they do things with bondo that you would not believe. But the cases are made of steel and there's lots of tips on finishing metal you might get some ideas from. Google million dollar pc and mptech for great tuts
