Got them trimmed up, hinges installed, and rare earth magnet fasteners in place.





Next is a bit more shaping, and adding a greeble or two to help hide the fasteners.  ;D

Here are some updates.  Had a bit of creativity blockage, thus the lack of updates.



















A bit more to go.  I will finish sanding the blaster tonight and try to get some paint on it.  I will be attaching the Blaster separately so It can be Painted as such. A few more greebles to go as well.

Are those electronics going to be exposed?

At first when I looked at the other gauntlet with the fins... I was like "wat", but I like them now.

Yes, they are.  I wanted to break up the smooth look with a little bit of circuit board.  More like what is in the back of Fett's bucket.  Nothing too grandiose, just a little bit.  :D

Blaster primed and painted.







Now I need to decide if I want to ad weathering by masking it and painting it black, or leaving it silver and adding carbon scoring and rust.

Opinions?  Keep in mind that the gauntlet will be a dark navy blue like my armor
