I'm quite happy with it when I unmasked the brass but it needs a little more.  Wandering Home Depot Looking for a little something something to really kick it into the next league.  I have a few ideas; well see.  Mockups to come, I'll be looking for votes.

The Goal:


Current State:


A black wash on the green will age it and bring it close to the target colour tone.  Brass strip will be cut to size tomorrow when the paint has fully cured and the screw holes hill be drilled.  All that leaves is a silver dry brush on the black.

Some swine stole a nail from the package so I am one short. on my way to grab another pack, cut it down into a tack, then weather and the left gauntlet is visually finished. Then I'll just have to solder up a quick flasher for the LED and strap it and I can call it good.

Laser and electroluminescent panel wired up.  Need to pick up some more 555s this weekend so I can make the flasher circuit for the LEDs then close her up and call it a gauntlet.



Shknees and ab plate are the only major parts left.
