    ESB Gauntlets - Pics of flamethrower-cable ?

    Hi,
    Im in need of pics of the cables which are attached to the flamethrower on the left gauntlets of the ESB Fett.

    What diameter and color is the correct one ?

    Ive seen a pic of MoW-gauntlets with red and black but I havent any reference pic.

    Thanks for your help,

    Greetings from Germany

    Florian

    Hey Florian,

    I have this pic but not very clear on exact colours but at a guess the diameter would be around 5mm?

    Hope that helps?

    One would assume that they 'would' be tubes to carry the fuel to the thrower? But I'm not totally sure what others have used in the past...

    i saw a picture a while back from someone who had used what appeared to be fuel lines for a car. hard tubing of course, not the rubber lines.

    I figured they were just electrical wiring.

    i don't have gauntlets yet, but i would use tubing, like mojo said, something needs to carry fuel to the thrower, i doubt that could be achieved by electrical wiring?

    Well it is just a prop... this stuff was never functional.

    I know what you mean Andy...
    But if we are all looking for that convincing Fett look, we might as well try for all those pesky little details too?

    what type? Any close ups? They kind of remind me of telephone wire (but different colors)

    i don't think that those are flat electrical wires. they seem to have a certain roundness to them. i dug out a picture i saved from someones work. i either saw it here somewhere on the forum...or(?), so forgive me if i'm using someone elses work, but the tubes in the pic look more accurate to me.

    I think that it's like this cable (double), but red and white:




    In the the pic that Mojo has shown I can see 2 cables.

    Cheers

    I dunno... I think that Ben may have something on the overall shape?

    But my original comment was only that if they go into the rear of the Flamethrower then they would surely be tubes for fuel?
