    Finished Ruffkin gauntlets

    I am 98% done. I need to attach the hoses, and put my darts in when they get here. All said, these took me about 2 weeks 2-3 hours a night. I would like to change the bic lighter thingy, and the rocket in the future, but these will do for now. I noticed a couple spots in the pics where the paint is a little light. The flash brought this out. I could not see it staring right at it with good light. My daughter had the first pic with both of em on and done. Let me know what ya think!

    I think they look great. If anything I'd give them some black or blue washes though to bring out deeper weathering on them. They seem a bit too red right now.

    Looks very nice Buckeye. I got a pair of Bloodsport gauntlets (before I found this place) and the difference in design is pretty drastic. I guess I need to order some from Ruffkin.

    What are you guys using for the hose connections?

    The flash has brought out the red, and dulled the black mist on them. I assure you there is a heavy black mist on both, and top and bottom. There is also a matte coat to dull all of the silver weathering. Thanks for all the comments guys!
