I have seen tons of gauntlets, at least a bajillionty.

Gotta say this is one of the best ones I've ever seen. I love it.
The neon orange or pink or whatever it is makes the buttons appear backlit.

Thanks vod. It's just a red paint pen. I think the lighting in my living room makes it pop.

Bits of progress made to the gauntlet. Debating whether it should be Poison injector or a gas sprayer.

Simmy, What did you use to affix the hinges. My first troop my gauntlets had an unplanned deconstruction =/

I used PVC pipe glue. Used to glue pipe bends and couplings together. Fairly solid. Not trooped ever so soon know how troop friendly it is.

Are they plastic hinges? I thought those were metal. if they are plastic the weld should be fine.

Nicely done, Simmy! Working on my own gauntlets these past few days and the hardest part is waiting for glue/putty to cure!!

I have to fond a plastic hinge like the one you used! The metal one I've got will no doubt require rivets, so plastic and JB Weld would be more to my liking...

Looking good vod!

Cannot believe I missed this thread before. Your gauntlets are incredible, every line is so smooth and crisp, it puts mine to shame!

Stellar stuff!
