    Mar 13, 2006, 9:24 AM - ESB right gaunt help please #1

    My drawing skills are horrible so I thought I would ask for some help.
    On the ESB right gaunt, there is that block sorta thing with the 3 white square lookin things along with the long white pointy think at the top of that. Does anyone have a template for those? I have tried over and over again to draw it right, but like I said, I can’t do it.
    Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Laan

    Are you sure you are not referring to the flame thrower on the left?

    Isn't that supposed to be a large dart or grappling hook launcher?

    Laan,
    Have you considered just painting the whole structure black, and then cutting some pieces of plain white styrene and just gluing them on?
    I'd think that would be a lot easier than trying to mask and paint those white areas.

    Yes sir I have. That was my plan. But my problem is I cant free hand worth a darn. I thought I would draw them out on the styrene then cut out and glue. I just cant get size or look right.
    I was thinking if I have a template, I could use that to cut out the pcs.

    If there is a better way, I am all for it. I have been working on this all weekend and I am a little numb to the whole thing. Better ideas are welcome.
