IRONMAN HELMET by ScannerJOE IRONMAN HELMET by ScannerJOE
Now an unlocked version of the IRONMAN HELMET is included in a zip with other parts of the suit at [link] you can see what's in the zip here

The helmet is fully functional, it is a high detailed papercraft based on a laser scanned model found at [link] . It's part of my MARK III and MARK IV Cosplay suit.

Here are a few tips to build it right:
1. You can use a different material for the eyes, I have used the bottom of a disposable plate.
2. There are two little cones where you might install two 3volt high intensity leds, and place two AA batteries between the eyebrows.
3. Leave some gaps between the eyes and above of them so you can see through them, it's not much but you can see through "scanning". And be sure there is no light reflected from the leds back to your eyes or you wouldn't see anything at all.
4. Use galvanized wire to build the sliders and screw them to the face using flat head screws, nuts and washers.
5. Install a magnetic lock behind the mouth for instant lock when the face fall in place.
6. Join all the (helmet's) nape parts using two paralell ribbons

To wear it slide the (helmet's) nape parts up, insert your head slowly watching your ears, once inside slide the (helmet's) nape parts down.

To open the face, lift and slide back.

sorry dude
im actually pretty pee'd about this pattern

no joining lines areas or assembly instructions.

i have a handfull of parts, certain shapes and structures
now i have to interlock them, sort them with two hands.
fumble jumble falls apart

i cant see through paper to see where it all connects, if it connects , and how it connects
the 5 main assembly parts dont seem to have any tags, so you cant attach them.

i have wrecked my brain about this one all night.
usually they are easy to figure out.
i gave up.

...........................
you have an instruction manual about how to add lights and swing arms
but how about a manual on how to put your iron man helmet together?
please help.

I designed this pattern thinking on pasting it to corrugated cardboard, so most tabs wouldn't be useful there. Think of it like building it on foamy and you'll get my idea. If you want to use regular paper or corrugated carboard you'll have to add tabs using regular paper and glue.

It's a support part, a few parts attach to it and other parts move around it. Take a look at [link]

I'm seeing a lot of solid black lines on the inside of the pieces that don't have any folding tabs. Am I supposed to cut those or fold them? Sorry, I'm still pretty new to the papercrafting world.

:iconscannerjoe:
ScannerJOE Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes those are supposed to be cutted. This pattern was supposed to be pasted over corrugated cardboard so then you can cut those lines and fill them with white glue, so they can be pasted side by side (without tabs). If choose not to use corrugated cardboard then you have to join this gaps with paper and glue inside. As you may note this is not for beginers but it is not impossible to do.

Good luck!

I hope you have figured it out how to build it by now. There are no manual, only the advices posted right here in this deviation.

About the tabs, you can use pepakura viewer to check which part joins to which other. If you are missing the inner tabs you have to know that i've designed the pattern to be pasted over corrugated cardstock, so the "missing tabs" gaps should be filled with glue to join the cardstock side by side, additionaly you may use aditional paper/cardboard and glue to join the carstock from the inner side.

Muchas gracias por este increíble modelo. Estoy intentando armarlo, solo tengo un par de dudas.
Cuál es la finalidad de utilizar otro material para los ojos?
Y tampoco entendí bien el Tip 6 donde dice utilizar cintas paralelas para unir las partes de la nuca.
Reply
:iconscannerjoe:
ScannerJOE Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
El material traslucido de los ojos sirve como pantalla para los leds, para dispersar la luz en forma uniforme, tambien es posible usar papel de china o papel regular, el unico problema con esto ultimo tiene que ver con la durabilidad.

En cuanto a las cintas, estas mantienen unidas las piezas de la nuca y aseguran que se muevan en orden, esto seria opcional si el diseño incluyera "topes/ganchos" en cada pieza para asegurar que una pieza mueva a la otra cuando baje.

you can switch off the textures in pepakura to print the lines only. Then use any painting method you want.

hi I have all the pieces cut but some look like they are overlapping parts
also how do I fold the lines some are dashes and some are thick lines thanks

:iconscannerjoe:
ScannerJOE Featured By Owner May 5, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
If the cut lines are too near to each other it means they are almost flat surfaces so you must probably don't have to worry about them, if you still want to cut them you'll need to join them later with additional paper/cardboard from behind. I made this design originally to use corrugated cardboard so in that kind of cardboard you can join that gaps putting glue directly in the gaps.

And finally here's a quick intro to folds (using "ASCII Art"):

- - - - means mountain fold
-.-.-.- means valley fold
_______ means cut line

Nice challenge but i don't know, right now there's no reference for it (if it ever make it to the avengers movie). Right now there are too many speculations about its shape maybe the best bet are the IM2 toys edition but since the delta shaped arc reactor i think it'll be designed to match it instead.

How much harder would it be to build this if, to say, I were reduce this to 7 inches high? (about 177 mm in pepakura)
Reply
:iconscannerjoe:
ScannerJOE Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It could be hard but is not imposible. You might ignore some of the tiny cuts or even instruct pepakura to join those adjacent edges after changing the scale.
