Default Flying Pose Iron Man

Hey Guys,
Just thought I'd share some pix of my reposed Iron Man kit.
It is amazingly easy to take the static pose and really do something unique with it

enjoy

That's cool! Better than just standing there. I love the lights, it always brings a kit to life. I look forward to seeing the finished display.

Are you going to take us step by step thru paint? I'd love to see how you achieve the candy colors/hues.
I've only ever done it very 'old school' with the original lacquer offerings. I'll go ahead and bet that you won't be so I'll follow that with interest.

DD,

Happy to. the short story is: primer, gold under paint, apply paint templates, overcoat with candy red, remove templates, detail paint.

I'm using rattle cans of automotive paints available at your local advance auto parts store.

I'll be happy to post in progress pics along the way

Even moreso now that he says rattle cans? This will be interesting and I expect nothing but the best (as usual from him) of course.

OK, Lots of work done tonight.

the first two pictures show the templates in place.

and then the fun begins with a couple of light coats of the candy red.

I'll let it dry a good long time before removing the masks

^^^
You just gotta love a 'real candy' color.

I remember growing up when they still sold gold/silver 'basecoat' and then blue/green/gold and red candy enamels in hobby rattlecans. Of course I also remember when the lil bottle of Testors' enamel was 19cents and a rattlecan appx 79 cents? YES, I'm that fucking OLD.

But it's looking cool so far- keep the pics coming!

Looking forward to more....

Like that pose, like it A LOT!
It's not uber symmetrical in arm and leg posing either which is one little touch that sells it for me, just has a slightly more natural feel...if natural feel is something that can be applied to this kinda subject but what the hell

Nicely done thusfar Lou!
