Metal Earth Iron Man

Postby Rob » Sun Aug 27, 2017 9:19 pm

Recently purchased from a charity shop, didn't realise what I was letting myself in for!
Small, intricate flat parts need to be folded into shape and tabs pushed into slots ,and bent /twisted to make a strong, rigid structure.

Hi Rob :)
unfortunately photo-bucket links don't work unless you subscribe to they're yearly plan but Flickr and Imgur are great alternative's

If you right click and open in new tab you can see the photos.
It looks very challenging, and should be very impressive when it's finished.
Cheers

I have now deleted my photobucket account as they are no longer providing 3rd party hosting.
I cannot afford the cost of their p500 plan.

I can still see your pic's clearly (I'm using the Photobucket fix plugin)

I can recommend Imgur or Flickr as a good alternative to Photobucket
Completed Builds Hachette - The Black Pearl
Completed Builds DeAgostini - Build the Millennium Falcon

Always thinking outside the box....!

Thanks for viewing, everyone.
Must admit, this being my first Metal Earth model, a little bit of two-part resin glue was used in the early stages!
However, as I got used to handling the small parts,which are flat and have to be formed into the required shape and secured by pushing tabs into slots,I broke fewer parts and less glue was needed!
I formed the curves around paint brush handles, cocktail sticks, even the end of a wooden spoon. it was all experimental.
