There are new War Machine peps popping up. They look great! I'm currently working some Iron Man peps, but the proportions are being changed to accomadate our Haze brothers style of armor building. :D We've been working on underarmor techniques and the results are stellar. Makes the costume look more one piece as a whole instead of those little gaps here and there (between elbow and knee joints, etc).

sweet! dont forget pics chris! :D i have seen those as well, and am glad somebody is finally doing it right. im watching that thread like a hawk! lol! i found my answer in an unlikely place, i was told that a special concreate type of mix will make the molds, and if i need to sharpen them up i should use an apoxie sculpt like substance. ive been looking into high temp materials along these lines. i will keep looking and keep this thread up to date! lol!
