    They look great Lynn. What did you use for the 2 flame thrower nozzles, and what did you use for the right hose connectors??

    Thanks guys!

    The right hose connections are brass fittings that came with the kit, I havn't been able to find this style here locally.

    The flame thrower nozzles are RF cable connectors from Radio Shack that have the simlilar knurled ends like the origonal nozzles have.

    Man, they look good. Who's the maker, if you don't mind me asking. 2 names spring to mind, but clarification either way would be great!

    Top paint job, again.

    Credit where it's due: You did an amazing job painting those!

    What method did you use to attach them if you don't mind my asking?

    Cheers!

    Thanks guys for the comps!!

    jeezycreezy... They are glued solid under the flamer thrower housing on the left gauntlet and under the whipcord housing on the right gauntlet, then velcroed on the opposite sides just as the origonals are.

    They work great this way...

    Where? Got pics????? Lets see yours..... You speak pretty good for a newbie.....

    1... You won't find any better gauntlets, unless you go to the archives and copy them and mold them...

    2... I'm not going to claim to be the best painter, as there are some very good ones on this board as well, if you got better gauntlets or have pics of some, by all means put them up.

    Oh, and welcome......

    Re: Finished movie size ROTJ gauntlets

    I'm sorry, but that was just stupid of you to say something like that Dark Hawk
    It really pisses me off to read crap like that when people are putting their heart and soul into making exquisite props like the one in this thread...

    Anyway, Lynn don't pay attention to comments like that and...I'll be definitely referring to this thread when I'll be recieving my gauntlets next week! Amazing work

    Dude, that's just F'd up saying something like that. I agree with the others. Someone busts their hump working on their passion and you run off at the mouth. Let's see your work and compare. Like mom used to say: "If you can't say anything nice, STFU."
    That just really pisses me off. Sorry guys.
