    May 22, 2008, 1:43 PM - Chibigear Gauntlet progress (new pics) #1

    Ok, I got a bit active (it's about time I'd say), and got these done. I printed the WOF's templates yesterday, and cut the pieces out of thin metal sheet. I had to stop my work yesterday because I've promised my neighbor not to make too much noise in the evenings. Today I got home early, and went straight to pounding metal.
    The gauntlets are ROTJ style, as you can see, and at the moment, held together only with scotch tape (and LOTS of it...) There are several gaps, and things I would've done differently when doing these, but for my first gauntlets ever, these came up quite nicely.
    Now comes the hard part, finding the proper adhesive compound. As I live in Finland, I do not have access to Goop, gorilla glue or other stuff. I might have access to a welding machines at school if I play my cards right...
    Cheers, Ville

    Well, I did not resize the pictures, but took another pics instead. I'm still learning to use my digital camera, so sorry for the inconvience. I'm afraid that I cannot do much for these aside positioning the pieces in the proper places, I'll have to ask for the welding possibilities next week. But, as you can see on the last photo, there are some other projects I can do in the meanwhile...
    And sorry Gavin, your name was left out from these photos, but your contribution (not to forget WOF's) will never be. Thank you for the good work on the plans.
    And thanks Wickedbeard. Don't worry, you will not be having competition on metal gauntlets for any time soon. When, and only when I get my suit finished, I can think of doing something for that. Now, it's studies, and Fett for me.
    Cheers, Ville
