Hello guys.. I'm Vinay Tankoliya, a huge Iron Man fan from India!
In 2009, my friend gave me a movie and said (in Gujarati):
"Hollywood nu chhe, jovu hoi to joje nahitar delete kari nakhje."
I watched the movie... and it hit my mind and my heart. The movie was, of course, Iron Man!
I am so impressed that I watched it repeatedly, almost once in two days, repeat and repeat and repeat! It inspired me to try and become that character in my real life, so i started working on my very own Iron man suit!
First, I made an 'ARC Reactor' and the 'Hand Re-pulsars'. After that, I made the 'Hand missile system' from Iron man's MK-3 Suit.
In 2010, Iron man 2 was released. I watched it and observed the mechanism of War machine's M-134 machine gun. I decided to make my own 'M-134 war Machine gun gadget'. Iron Man 2's MK-6 suit was so beautiful and nicely designed (with the triangle Arc reactor) that I decided to make my own!
I decided to make this using cardboard fit personally to my measurements. But that wasn't enough! Eventually, I decided to make my own real iron man suit using metal! It took me eight to nine months, but I'm now finally ready to suit up!
