The last outing in the suit identified some weak spots, which we have been trying to battle-harden for the next show, coming up in a few weeks.

Woohoo!!!! Metallic vinyl has arrived and it's perfect! Finally found something the right colour, sheen, flexibility, thickness and stiffness to make the flexible covers in the armour gaps. (EDIT: my phone camera seems to bring out a pinkish hue to it, but rest assured it is a cherry metallic red.)

This stuff is brilliant! I can layer it up and stitch it together as overlapping plates, or just burn plate lines in one layer with a soldering iron.

Bringing the battery from the back of the leg into the chest plate. Quick eject bracket in case of fire. Wrapped the top of the battery in the new mayerial to blend it in.

^^^ Thanks mate. :D

Promotional poster has been released to the public and is spreading on social media. If you would like to help me raise money for the Starlight Children's Foundation, please share this on your own social media platforms.

IMAGE: http://i.imgur.com/OCrEhSI.jpg

Here's the blurb that accompanies the poster.

"It took over 3 years of weekend's and spare time along with blood sweat and tears to build, but Barry Armstead toughed it out and now has an awesome Iron man suit to show for it.

With help and guidance from a few of the Canberra knife making community Barry was able to learn a new skill set to help make this dream a reality. He learnt how to make knives and money raised from the sale of these helped fund the build.

The suit wasn't made just for Barry though, his intention from the start was to bring a smile to the face of children in hospital by suiting up and letting them get close to a superhero.

Barry has already raised money for The Starlight Children's Foundation and this is the charity he'll be supporting when he makes an appearance at The Sydney Knife Show on Sunday 6th August.

Bring your children (or your inner child) along and have a photo taken of the Ironman MKIV suit Barry has created and donate a gold coin to a very worthy Charity.

We hope to see you there."

Meanwhile... back at the ranch...

Pleated undersuit mods coming together. Here's how it looks under the armour. Camera's never seem to pick up the sheen that the eye can see.

Legs in progress. Beautiful work by my wonderful aunt. So much work! So many stitches! Hard material to work with too. Very slippery.

Just when you think everything was finished. Sigh... a superhero's work is never done.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

MISSION REPORT: IRON MAN AT THE SYDNEY KNIFE SHOW 2017

Brilliant day! 0500 departed Canberra, picking up my crew, Shane and James along the way. Met up with an old army mate to pick up the new Iron Man Baz Industries Team T-shirts he so kindly couriered from the CBD for us. Thanks to Zee from Teetalk for printing them for free.

Arrived at the knife show nice and early to set up and get dressed, coordinate with the event organisers and start the show. Lots of kids and adults alike came and got their photos, flooded us with questions and gave generously to the Starlight Children's Foundation. We came back with quite a lot!

Many thanks to my friends Peter and his friend Mark who joined us all the way from the central coast and offered their help. They were a great asset and fun company.

Just shy of three hours in the suit, wandering around between the knife tables and even went for a walk outside amongst the general public arriving for another event at Rosehill gardens racecourse.

Many thanks to the members of the Knife Art Society for making this all happen!

The Knife Art Society donated $500 to the Starlight Children's Foundation. We are blown away! On behalf of all the kids and their families that will benefit from this, THANK YOU!

Following this thread and your vids has been cool but seeing you in your suit in person, what a fantastic bit of artwork. Well done
