Smart move, its one on the reasons I swapped out mine as it just destroyed wrist movement and added weight.  :like:

in the past I've never really liked the Rotj flame unit, as it was big and bulky. I've always preferred the smaller esb style....and the stripped down look. After looking at the Rotj and making it a bit smaller....I'm strarting to like the look. Now to find some cool looking pipes and nozzles, join the two halves and clean it up and paint....still need to cut the shells down so they actually fit me
Finalise the design .
May need a led similar to the one fett has on the rear of his gauntlet 🤔 Or maybe a push button switch. Since I'm still using Kast style rockets on the top/sides, I thought I should move the flame control switches

Bit of playing around, before work out what I'll use for the flame thrower, been looking at a few lengths



Also thinking of having ability to extend and retract
Also thinking of these pistols...more the top and bottom versions...not really interested in the middle one

I've had it a while....always hated the poor paint job. It won't be exact to my kit...I can't adjust any of it. Hard to make a pattern or stencil to work off....it'll be roughly similar 😂

As someone that has multiple kits with different lengths of flamethrowers, I can tell you that the longer it is, the more annoying, uncomfortable, and in-the-way it is.  I highly suggest keeping it the same length as your gauntlet itself, maybe just a slight protrusion.  The concept looks really good though!

Thanks for the advice, I can see it'll add ....headaches.. 😕 I've thought of using some metal in the build and anticipating the gauntlet wanting to rotate so it'll need to be a snug fit. Sort of thinking of making it a bit slimmer as well.  Still working out where it'll actually sit on the gauntlet, would I line the top back edge up with back of gauntlet or the back bottom edge 🤔
At moment I'm thinking just the barrel extending...nothing collapsible with the housing...did think of having the front section of the housing having the ability to slide back a bit....servicing or something. No idea yet..
Been thinking of trophies and adding a little more
Also thinking up plans for jetpack...colours. Colours still mainly green, but I'll add in black, white, and metal
Weapons are still on the mind....few plans there, also a nemrod holster
The helmet and jaig eyes ...black ones and other helmet details
Kill stripes added later...if I make it to protector...what ever number I am will be the kill stripe number.
The enthusiasm is back....just need to start ball rolling, organise myself

Dude!!! The kill stripe idea Of what number official Protector you are is a really cool idea! I wish I would have thought of that haha I have 2 too many for that to work with mine but that's great!

What are you thinking trophy wise??

The kill stripes idea... I was looking at helmet the other night thinking about what needs to be done

Been along time since I've really painted anything...decided to see how the airbrush is working, resprayed the jet pack...just started to experiment with the weathering, applying some decals...mixing the ESB and Rotj/ pre pro up abit. Going to add a few more, need to paint the piano teeth.....a lot more weathering....improve what's there too.

I like the idea of metal thrusters...
Maybe with some metal scorch discoloration (blues, black and grey, etc.)
I canít wait to see whatís next :)
