    Think you should go back and try and get the front to have more curve to it....those look more like Jango knees then boba...

    Once that curve is fixed and it looks like it has the overall approval on here, I'd be down for a set!! awesome work!!

    Looks a bit better...but a little hard to tell....the first pic you posted in this thread gives a good view at how flat the front was...looks better now...but not sure if I'd say its spot on just yet....do you plan to clean up that weld on the launcher where it meets the knee? It should kinda swoop....transition if you will to the knee....look at pics of the knees in the gallery to see what I mean.

    Wow making the knees is getting easier gauntlets will be next. It's a shame some people got out early. For those who stayed in expect a surprise.

    Can't wait to see the gauntlets - I've printed all the templates and also ordered some fiberglass ones to use as a model... might try aluminium soon.
