Slowly inching toward a finish. I am all but finished with putty and Mr Surfacer 1000. The only area that needs some more sculpting? I hate to write this--the CROTCH! Yes, Ironman had a bad step off in his crotch.Two parts met in that area and they were woefully misaligned. I carved one side down a bit, then took a piece of very thin styrene sheet cut to shape and used it like a "patch". I kept applying Tamiya extra thin over and over to the styrene. It eventually melted and was then sculpted around the misaligned area. Me Surfacer 1000 was coated on and now it needs carving and sanding.

Then Ironman gets sanded all over with finer and finer grits down to a polish.

Then Paint. Base coat is........Undecided for now. primer? NATO black? silver?

Final decision? Am I going to have Ironman using his repulser to destroy a reinforced concrete wall, or maybe an iron door?

Alain, thank you very much. The model actually fit together very well but still left seams all over due to the engineering. It is an older kit. So it’s like many models, due to molding capabilities, you get seams. Filling sanding filling sanding....etc. it’s boring work but has to be done. It’s a mojo buster.

Coming together nicely Ted [thumb]

I was wondering was anyone else subconsciously crossing their legs the same as I was when I read your latest update [rofl]

🤣😂🤣😂🤣😳
I’m sure there were a plethora of reactions! To be honest, there is no good word for that area of the body/armor! 😂🤣😂🤣😳 I hope everyone had a laugh. It’s strange when I am hacking away with a blade or grinding sandpaper across the area. Won’t hardly be seen when complete!

Hi Ted... have a suggestion for your next super hero model. 

But my advice would be to be very careful during filling and sanding this time. She could become very angry [rofl][rofl]

You sir have found the truth. Only problem is, I will never fit in one of those old school desks again!

Well, I am making a stab at crossing the finish line.

I have until 12/31/19 MIDNIGHT, RIGHT?


sanded seams and laid down a ultra flat black primer this evening. The images look shiny but as it dries it gets flatter and flatter. Its almost a dead ringer for NATO black. Almost a "rubber" black. I also used this black paint on the 89 Movie Batmobile.

Clear coat next then a load of masking--some of it will be a real bear! I am pretty sure finishing IRONMAN before the deadline is a no go.Well, this is what happens when you wait so long to get something done. I was counting on the holidays. Unfortunately my GF and I both had the flu--lost two weeks of time. My bad.

Its better to take your time and do it justice than to rush it and mess it up, bad luck getting Flu [frown]

The first partial masking to protect the gold paint in the spinal armor depressions.
