better not try and compare

btw is it wise to clearcoat paper models so they keep longer fresh?
maybe with hair spray?

Hi Dennis,don't know about hairspray but would you believe I tried to give this guy a coat of varnish from an art can.But that was when it was printed way back around May.Remember we had a very cold spring back then & thought we'd never get a summer.Well I sprayed it outdoors & the varnish reacted to the cold - at the time it was below 10°C.It didnt give a smooth coat just droplets so I stopped & on the can it said to use above 15°C!You wouldnt notice it on the chap now luckily.I think paper models will last years anyway without a protective coat.
Vince I modeled the stance on Micheal Jackson doin a Moonwalk would ya believe.

I have a lot of apologies to make...
I can't sleep...
And when I do I have nightmares...

Had some time over the weekend to work on this chap.I decided to use a toothpick to connect the upper & lower body parts to ease transport.Just snipped a bit off,sharpen the end,find a centre point in the hips section,cut a hole &glue in position.Followed by finding a centre point for the top hole for a dry connection.
The remainder of the wood was sharpened & used to connect the arms to the body.
I made a couple of paper wedges to use on the right arm to get the desired angle.
A pose was decided,holes cut in the arms to slip onto the toothpick,a little glue applied & set in position.The oversize Dallas style shoulderpads were then stuck on top.

Next up a tab was glued to secure the neck to the body.I made up a paper section to glue on top of the neck to support & keep the helmet at the correct height when glued in position.

Thats about it for this Iron Man,just a little dark paint to the wedges I made.I'll stick in some daylight shots when thats done.All in all this turned out to be a nice model to work on.
Cheers for lampin,

Cheers lads.Yup Dennis he's called Mr. C & he's a big Iron Man fan.He saw it finished yesterday,first time he spotted it out the corner of his eye it was just the printed sheet & he knew it was Iron Man straight away.I have to remind him its only made of paper.
