“The inner thigh plates for the Mark III armour are easy to swap, as the pieces are attached by two pegs and simply click into place.”

NOTE: I will not be installing these parts on my Iron Man model, but I did want to share the parts included with these extension issues.



Materials: Both of the parts in this issue are metal.

Battle Damaged • Thigh Plates

Stage 1 – Replacing the Bicep Cover

Carefully remove your Inner Thigh Plate (36A from Issue 36) from the inner Left Leg and replace it with the Inner Left Thigh Muscle.

Carefully remove your Interior Thigh Plate (55A from Issue 55) from the inner Right Leg and replace it with the Inner Right Thigh Muscle.

TIP: You may need to use a flat edged tool to remove the original parts. I recommend something like these mobile repair plastic pry tools.


The original ‘stock’ parts are held in with two small plastic pins and should be fairly easy to remove.
