Hulkbuster armor comes in all sizes. Yesterday, we showed you a set of massive life-size Hulkbuster armor, but today, it’s time to scale it down. Let’s look at the miniature costume Replica Props Forum (RPF) user indiefilmgeek, also known as Jonathan Douglas, is making for his seven year old son for Halloween. He started the project 90 days before Halloween and decided to make the Hulkbuster armor from foam. He found a papercraft 24″ model of the armor by Julius Perdana and manually scaled up each individual part to fit his kid. Whew.
Douglas started with the boots. He said:
I had a pair of black hiking boots I had picked up for another costume (Mikey’s Generator Rex from a couple years ago). Using 1/2″ thick mat foam, I cut out the base of the boot template and then cut a hole for the boot. Having seen the wear and tear on boots I’ve built before, I actually RAISED the costume part of the boot off the floor a bit. I used Gorilla Glue and hot glue to attach this base to the boots.
He added detailing to the foam with a wood-burning tool and 2mm thick craft foam. Before painting, he covered the shoes with a couple coats of Plasti-Dip.
