Sort of wondering what the hose was for...compressed air  :laugh: to shoot the darts and whipcord 🤔
Been thinking about the hoses recently as well. I have some hose for a large compressor but feel it's too thick. Might try find some silicon hoses. I know there's some offered for cars but not sure about size and colour
Few more pics

Hose connector added, some clay used to try illustrate idea better.

I'm thinking where the rubber band crosses the flames/ launcher I may need to turn down the shafts diameter to allow it to sit lower. Also thinking of adding some copper piping as well...another small detail. The grey clay will be replaced with some thing else more permanent. Maybe a hose at rear attaching to hose connector

Thanks mate, what do you reckon about the colour combo. I think I should paint the whipcord housing or hose connector yellow- orange, bit less black. The housing needs weathering, currently it's just a flat black undercoat. Might add in some brass 🤔

Yeah i really like the orange..... it does a great job pushing the weathering forward. Maybe you could make a whip cord tip that looks metal ?

I've got to try match that colour  ???, orange on both the whipcord and connector?
With the whipcord I was thinking of replacing the tube in the cut out area with some type of tube/ shaft, and continue that to the tip. Also thought of winding some cable around it and attach to the tip.
What do you reckon the second tube is for on the bottom of the whipcord housing? ( on the Rotj version)

Coming into this a little late, but I absolutely love the Twin Engines of Destruction reference, not to mention the evolution of your gaunt from concept to essentially reality. 

The hose on both my Protector and Fett are the braided hose, but my protector is an empty hose, while Fett has some black cable run through it.

Thanks Mi'ix , Twin Engines is awesome...best comic with fett in it I reckon. Artwork is great with lots of inspiration...feels Star Wars too  :laugh: there's a lot of work yet to be done on the reality part too :laugh:
I'll have to source some braided hose of the right size
