    esb gaunts paint details

    well i got these pics from TDH somewhere, Is that black square on the left gaunt just a black square or a push button like the small one on the side of right gaunt?

    and from what I can see the keypad button colours are 2 rows silver, 2 rows blue, 1 row red...right?

    I've actually never noticed that before. I don't have a black spot there on my ESB gauntlets though I'm needing an upgrade on them sometime soon.

    I haven't looked at the gauntlet's in awhile, but I do believe it's a raised portion of the gauntlet painted black to look like a button- not a physical button like we see on the inside of the right gauntlet.

    In regard to the painted numbers on the MQ-1, I've researched that in the past and I am very skeptical that the numbers are painted. The Mq-1 buttons are extremely reflective and can produce a "painted" effect under various lighting conditions.

    However, this is simply my opinion, as definite reference is lacking to prove the issue one way or the other.

    I see what you mean... DAMN that lack of reference for ESB...

    And I'll stick with a black square then...

    an whats up with the "orange" on the flamethrower, wich appears red in some pics? (I know , I know, 20 year old photo/film footage under different lighting etc etc... its still frustrating )

    Actually, the photo in the bottom left corner in the above image is a great example of why I think the buttons are not painted: you would never be able to get ALL the buttons to reflect like that if they were painted.

    It didn't have to be painted to be shiny, the MQ-1 keypad is shiny metal
