Right, time to start a new build and going to do the MkXXXVII “Igor”. Had originally thought of doing this is red instead of blue, which is how Igor is shown in the original artwork for the film, and I was thinking Hulkbuster at the time but as Dragon are going to do the proper Hulkbuster I’m going to stick to the on screen look now.
So quick look at the parts to start with.
First thing you notice is the size of the box which is about twice the size of a regular Dragon kit.
There are a good number of sprues inside and some of the parts a single pieces. Didn’t take pictures of them all because that’s boring, but here are a couple of shots.
Instructions are typical Dragon and bit vague.
And on the back is a colour picture this time of the final paint finishes with call outs. Basically metallic blue and silver.
There is also a small sheet of decals for the final detailing.
So quick comparison between this and the normal Iron Man suits in one aspect:
So bit different! The hands on this are really big in scale though and the whole suit isn’t proportionally that much bigger. The hands are made of the funny vinyl stuff that Dragon uses and are moulded as a single piece.
So decided to make a start on a couple of bits and got a bit carried away. This goes together really quickly and nicely.
A wire has been run through for the lighting in the chest and head (they’re the only 2 for this one). Really chunky this one! More my style.
And with the head added. The parts of the head aren’t glued up yet but everything goes together really nicely. The whole torso was put together with no glue to start with to make sure I had things right this time. Held together really nicely and only a couple of very small gaps.
And finally for this post a quick comparison of the head sizes.
So that’s about twice the size.
One thing that is a disadvantage is that there is no base that comes with this build, so need to find something that will fit with the other builds.
