The War Marshall - Upgrade

Post by Avengerholic »

The War Marshall was one of the very first replicas I made, I was never happy with the result, in truth I rushed it. I didn't take the time to research it and hunt around for what I needed. Today we've started to take it apart and upgrade it. Hopefully it will look like I originally intended it too.

Researching all those medal ribbons will take a bit, they all seem to be real medals on the original prop.

Actually That is the one part I took an exceptional amount of time over, it's extremely accurate. The medals on the original prop are, believe it or not quite crudely hand drawn and coloured in on a sheet of card. See the screen grab below.

Finished, just needs a coat of satin leveling varnish on the black paintwork to make it pop, but it's far too hot to do it at the moment due to the scorching heat, it'll just blister.

As always, very impressive. And one of my favourites, the many colour tiles make it pleasing to watch I guess.

Having followed all your recreations of Avengers props, it really is astonishing how well to do it. Bravo!
