Iron Man 2 – War Machine Free Mecha Paper Model

This mecha paper model is the War Machine (JRXL-1000 Variable Threat Response Battle Suit), a solar charged carbon-composite-based external plating armor which provided its user with superhuman-level strength and durability as well as utilizing laser guided munitions, the papercraft was created by Raphael Gatt. War Machine was presented as the heavily modified Armor MK II for Iron Man 2. Various weapons are added to the Mark II for the classic War Machine look.

Rhodes is under pressure by the United States government to convince Tony Stark to relinquish ownership of the Iron Man armor while remaining loyal to Stark despite frustration. When an intoxicated Stark in the Iron Man armor proceeds to target and shoot various objects

endangering the lives of all the guests at his birthday party, Rhodes was forced to don the Iron Man Mark II armor to intervene. After the intervention turns into a fight that wrecked Stark’s home, Rhodes left with the Mark II armor. After the confiscated Mark II armor is upgraded into the heavily armed War Machine armor, it is taken for a

demonstration at the Stark Expo with Rhodes as its pilot. However his armor was under the control of Ivan Vanko and Rhodes was forced to fight Stark against his will. The War Machine software was rebooted by Natasha Romanoff, enabling Rhodes to regain control over his armor. Rhodes then teamed with Stark to fight against Hammer’s unmanned drones and Vanko himself.

War Machine was developed when the military had taken in the Mark II armor and it was upgraded with heavier external armor plating and new technology. The armor’s heavy weapons arsenal of ballistic weaponry was provided by defense contractor Justin Hammer of Stark Industries’ rival company Hammer Industries. The markings on the War Machine armor include its serial & production number of “AF47 001″, the “ED 445 FLTS” tail code designation of the 445th Flight Test Squadron, and the modern and heritage United States Air Force logos.

It is equipped with non-weapons grade repulsor based flight stabilizers that theoretically reach speeds of Mach 8 similar to the Mark IV’s flight stabilizers. Chest battery is capable of generating at least eight gigajoules of energy. Only a fraction of this energy is required to power the Mark II exoskeletal structure. The Hull Pressure Transducers are onboard sensors that track external pressure based on altitude, speed, and temprature, and adjust imternal settings appropriately. On the right shoulder, there is an M134 7.62mm minigun that can extend or retract in or out of its “cup”. On the left shoulder, there is a bunker buster Sidewinder missile. Each wrist supports twin 9mm Claridge Hi-Tec semi-automatic pistols. The 5.56x45mm FN F2000 was ideal for mounting inside of the gauntlets due to the unique way it discharges spent casings out the front. Custom feeds send the rounds directly into the gun, eliminating the standard 30-round magazine. [Source: Wikia]
