FT\'s ESB Gauntlets

    FT's ESB Gaunts

    Ok, Chuck asked that I post some pics when I got them done, so here they are. The pics turned out a little dark - sorry


    The left gauntlet features my scrath-made flamethrower. The rest was from Chuck's kit. The flamethrower was made from 1/4" aluminum rod (I turned the indentions on my drill press), some brass tubing, copper tubing, a flange off of a paint brush, and solid hunk of aluminum I cut with a hacksaw (whew!).



    The right, is pretty much the kit, except I added aluminum panels to the rope-shooter.

    You can see in both pics, that I used rivets to hold my sides together. It may not be dead on accurate, but I planned on wearing this thing a lot and wanted to be sure it wouldn't come apart.

    Comments and questions welcomed.

    Looks great. I never thought about using rivets to assemble mine. Great idea. Nice work on that flame thrower

    TK-409's site has a link to where you can acquire a set of those darts. I think they are like $41.

    THey are made out of machined aluminum.
    Alot of people will use Bic Pens too. They look pretty good but still do not compare to the machined ones.

    I know what ya mean i ordered Some ROTJ boba fett gauntlets. I'm currently working on them. But since these gauntlets are for my custom they'll be silver instead of the occasional red.
