    That's a very good point too. It seems to me that as much wear and tear that the rocket would have encountered up till now, if it was made of plastic, no matter how it was painted I would think we would see some bare plastic on at least a portion of it, especially after the SE publicity photos having the hose ductaped to it. Do we know if the one seen in those shots has been seen on tour since then?

    I know this is an old post, but has anyone looked at the Airfix/MPC 1/24 scale Harrier? That kit was used to build the AT-AT and other items, stands to reason the rocket pod from that kit might have been used to build Boba's gauntlet rocket as well.

    The shapes are just too far off to be a model part, plus we have seen CAD drawings where they are designing the rocket to be machined.

    BTW, I want to retouch on those who were thinking they were not seeing the red in my previous photo. Here are some new photos. I don't think you can deny the red... now the question is, is that just paint on top, or is that the base color of the piece. Given the wear on the back edge, I feel like it means the base part is red.

    I don't see a red color, but an orange base without all the weathering and without a gloss varnish all over it? PM sent anyway.

    Sorry, I can't see color very well. I am being told what I am calling "red" is actually "orange."

    He means the orange colour that's seen like chips under the weathering.
