TCW Deathwatch Rocket Gauntlet
« on: Jun 03, 2014, 11:43 PM »
The base gauntlet came with my armour kit from KWDesigns but I'm going to have to scratch build the console and rocket attachments that the Airborne Grunt from Season 4/5 of TCW uses.

Started work on the console first, once I have that sorted I will work on the rocket housings and rockets.

This is what I'm working towards.



First stage, planning.



Second stage, cardboard prototype, it's a little dodgy looking but it let me see how my dimensions looked.



Third stage, flatten some PVC pipe and draw and cut out the pieces.



Next stage, assembly  :) (fingers crossed)

Well, finally got some time to get back to my build :)

A few guides glued in place to help everything stay in place while the glue dries (did this weeks ago)



Then time to cut out the button plate for the console, a little measuring and marking.



Then drilling, cutting, filing etc, etc ... and the top of the console cut out as well.



Some preliminary gluing, then wait ..............



While I was waiting for the glue to dry enough to add the next piece in I finished off sanding down all the armour plates ready for priming.

After a while this was the result.



Still need to cut out and attach a plate for the back end and drill holes in the front plate for the blasters but I think it might just work out.

Here it is sitting on the gauntlet to give an idea of scale, still needs to have the base shaped to sit down properly but you get the idea.



That's all for now, hopefully I can now get back on track with this project.

Tiny bit more progress today, but seeing as I usually don't get time on Saturday I'm counting this as a bonus  :D

Rear plate for the console cut out and glued in place.



Just needs a little shaving down once the glue dries to give a nice neat fit and then I can start adding some filler to smooth over the joins.

With the glue dry today i was able to file down the edges of the back plate for a close fir and then spent some time carving out some of the front and back plates where the console needs to sit down over the gauntlet.













Still need to put some filler on to cover all the joins but overall I'm reasonably happy with it.

Just considering if I might need to trim it down towards the back end some, it might be sitting too high but I'm not entirely sure as I don't have a full side on reference pic.

Trimmed it down to lower the back end somewhat, still not sure I'm 100% happy with it though.



was looking at these reference pics, which are from the Torch trooper but their centre console seems to be exactly the same as the airbourne (just different weapon mounts).





Anyone got any opinions before i go any further?
 
Here's another pic with it held at the same angle as the gauntlet in the reference pic.

 


Looking at it like that I think I'm maybe a little happier with it although would still like some feedback :)

The front looks right mate, just the back might be a bit high by maybe 5mm

Oooooooooooooooh my gosh this is so cool. Inspiring me to get back to work on my own gauntlets :D

What Pointy said though. Maybe trim the back down a little bit more.

Thanks for the feedback vode :)

Gonna lower it a little more but before I do that i'm going to need to pull it apart a little as the control plate (on the other side) will need to be raised a bit so that I have room to trim things down more.

I had a really busy weekend (non costume related unfortunately) so I didn't get much done at all. However I did manage to remove the control plate without having to pull the entire console apart - yay  :)



It was around that stage that the costume gods demanded a blood sacrifice as payment for my success and my stanley knife happily provided it - ooops  :o  ;D (nothing serious)

Ok, a little more trimming this afternoon and I think I'm happy with this now.



Started on adjusting the other side to raise the control plate slightly, glue is drying on that at the moment. Should have some more pics later tonight or tomorrow.

Looks good! To nitpick, I think that short back panel is now slightly the wrong angle :P It's the right height though!

I had a look at this but from what i can see it's ok. I held the console up against an enlarged reference pic on my monitor and the angles seemed ok, so I think I will leave it as is?

Next step, blaster barrels for the front of the console.

I used the aluminium pipe i had leftover from my pistol barrels and some PVC pipe.





After some drilling and much filing they are now mounted and the glue should have dried overnight so I should have some pics of them mounted soon  :)

And here's the blasters mounted, still need some cleanup on the filler but you get the idea.

Been having some trouble coming up with a method of constructing the rocket pods - mostly how to put it together and stay together without it falling apart. After much deliberation I am currently attempting to model them up in 3D so I can send them off to my squad mate to be printed. Will see how that goes and post pics if successful.

I ended up putting a couple of wood screws from inside the gauntlet up into the rocket on my Boba because kids just kept grabbing at it and velcro was replaced by glue that had begun to weaken. I didn't want to repair that thing after dropping it again.

Have been making progress on the 3D model for the rocket pods.



Still got some work to do with some details and still have to make the rockets themselves to go into the pods but making progress smile.gif
