The Soldier

In World War II patriotic solider Steve Rogers recipient of the "Super Soldier Serum" became the living symbol of freedom, Captain America. Left for dead while frozen in ice, the star-spangled hero with an indestructible shield awoke years later to continue his never-ending battle for liberty.

 

I chose a Bucky Barnes costume for a few reasons and the most important one is that I think very few people deserve to be associated with one of the comic industries most honorable characters, Steve Rogers.

 

Whoever wields it, Cap's shield is a fromidable weapon of defense and offense. I built it to very specific dimensions taken from Marvel's comics and inside info on the actual prop used in the movie. It is heavy, but no heavier than the actual shield would be and the handles on the back rely on brown technic parts and are very sturdy.

 

Thank you to my lovely Wife for taking these shots!
