    ESB main gauntlet damage template

    I made this for myself to get the damage correct on the left Gauntlet. I traced over a high res image to get the basic shape down. I have a vinyl cutter so i just cut it out in vinyl to use as a mask, stuck it on, painted and removed it i think it came out pretty good. You will need to do a little dry brushing on some of the edges it you want to get it more natural looking, but this is a good start. You also may need to scale it to your particular gauntlet. I made this for the 2010 MOW's and i had to scale it a bit to get it the size i wanted..figured id share in case anyone wanted this. I may do one for the grey damage as well. On the gauntlet pictured, i just did the grey damage by eye/hand.



    Here is my gauntlet:


    Here is the high res pic close up (and upsidedown)of the gauntlet:

    It looks good so far!
    Altough your paint job is accurate, there is another, cleaner version (without that big dark gray scratch). But the interesting part is that the clean version appears only in the hallway scene (when he walks beside the HIC and when he shots at Luke - still images); all the other (need further clarifications here) scenes looks with that big dark gray scratch on the left gauntlet:

    Chronologically it doesn't look correct, but is possible that they shooted some scenes earlier or later (the scene where Boba Fett follows the Millenium Falcon was shoot later than it appears in the movie). It also seems the same gauntlet with the same big silver scratch, but is also possible that they did two sets of gauntlets with very close, almost perfect paint jobs.

    You still haven't gotten these? That's crazy. And I never knew about the two different paint jobs. Interesting.

    Never got a tracking number either. I'm not worried yet, but that number would be nice to have.
