The concept on the gauntlet is interesting. I would caution you on using something metal, sharp, and pointy on your kit. It could hurt you or someone else.

You could try a rubberized piece or something plastic.
The file used in the pic was used because it fit the hole, the file broke in my hand and the thought crossed my mind. I understand what you mean about being careful of harming others, it's just a mock up and it calms the mind down thinking and visualising how things could work.....it won't be spring loaded thats for sure
I think you should make some metal tines for the jet pack grapple hook  :D :D :D
To be honest I am thinking something like that, for what I'm thinking I need to make new ones...just for it to move by itself  :laugh:
Thinking about painting the rocket with same .....rough approach I used for survival knife....paint and leave outside for a while  :laugh: looks well loved


Bit of a paint job on jp rocket, I don't mind it so far  :laugh: might need to repaint some areas

Looks good, man.

Rayne is right about the pokey bit. Something like that won't be approved at the CRL level due to safety.

I saw your PMs, just been slammed so it'll be a sec before I can get to them.

Thanks mate, I do understand the danger and don't intend using it....just used to show / see what it looks like. The spike thing may not be used and I may look at something more like a blade

Bit more progress, might make a few of these...read somewhere where fett had a few of these. Be something to add in pouches
One may do something, others just filler  :laugh: ...the tape is too wide, it's just holding things together...it'll be painted and different colour tape too

🤔 Getting another idea for sonic beam weapon now

Neat! That's a pretty cool gauntlet concept art. Is that from original Fett concept designs?

Thanks mate.... at moment it’s powered by my forearms of death 😂
I do intent to hook it up to a servo... and even have a Jodo kast inspired setting.... nozzles rotate to horizontal for those who haven’t read “twin engines of destruction” comic
I was lucky with the shaft being the exact size... now to sort out the workings

Was having alook around in the goody bin last and found a few things I collected and planned on using
Found a small breathing chip...pulses a LED...and also a laser diode. The battery clip still had good batteries in it, and the clip in just slightly wider than the Patterson squeegee piece. I was planning on making it out of aluminium ...so I'll just get a slightly wider bit of stock, and may make a few. I've got another idea for the anti security blade...but I'll leave that as a suprise for when skills get better  :laugh:
Pulsing led...will pulse the laser diode, just hard to see

Been mucking around with a steel bolt and lathe...turned down to a rough dart launcher / flame unit shape.  Roughly what I'll use on my gauntlet. Tried an experiment in bluing.

A lot easier than anodising....the bolt was cheap too
