Here is my highly detailed 1/1 scale model of the Arc Reactor from the first film. This is the one that eventually ended up in the display gifted to Tony by Pepper.
Hours of meticulous work has gone into modelling each element as accurate to the film as I can from reference. I recommend ordering in Black too as a customer sent me his image and it looks amazing raw in black :)
The model comes in 6 parts.
Transformers, Proton Shield, Capacitors, Central Ring, light ring and dispersal coil
The assembled kit measures roughly 80mm in diameter. Some basic assembly and painting required and copper wire is not included but is easily obtained from electrical and hardware stores.
UPDATE after the feedback I recieved on the Arc Pendant I decided to resize it for this model. This is the screen accurate size as all other replicas add an inch to the diameter for display purposes. Same great model with improvements on the geometry :D
The U.S.S. Sulaco as featured in Aliens. This model took me over a month to complete and I used reference photos from the screen used model. I'm no stranger to the film and have been a fan for over 20 years .
If you have any questions or want to review my instruction sheet before purchasing, please comment or message me? Thanks for the support guys :)
