MMcFett's Gauntlet WIP

Got my gaunts in from IOA/RKD!


I had the wrong upper/lower parts matched in the picture but Will set me straight so they'll be assembled correctly.  :P

Marking these for possible future use (his gaunts are incredible!):
hey, do you mind if I use your gauntlet images on page 25? I've been looking for some, as my photoshop skills aren't the best.
Thanks levvan,

and no, not a problem at all - that's why I posted them.

Would love to see how they turn out!

So I don't think there's going to be any room for a gauntlet display in these. I'll investigate that more later. Had an armor party last weekend and got my gaunts trimmed. Measured and cut the hinges. The closed side is really easy. Just a bit of hot glue.


It took me a while to figure out how to remove the pin from the opening side but once I realized that you just discard the locking side and use 2 pieces of the nonlocking side it went easier. You cut the first segment of the locking side and pull it off exposing the hinge. Then you have enough to grab and pull on to get it out. I followed this really helpful hinge tutorial.

So got the primer on and Rub n Buff.


Added masking fluid.


And now for the paint!


Made some blasters from soap dispenser tubes and wooden barrels.



Was thinking of mounting them on the right gaunt, but would have to add more to make them look built in. I think I might make them into a flamethrower for the left gaunt instead.

I really dig your blaster idea!

love to see WIPs to see that kind of solutions. They inspire, and stun me at the same time!
