    As I said they still being developed when thay are done I will be posting full size printable templates that will include all the details that you will need to create a set of gauntlets from scratch. For an example, down load the PDF attachment of the Sling gun in the first post of this thread to get a feel of what I am planning to do with the gauntlet drawings.

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=14474

    I won't be posting any dimensions until I have completely mocked up the gauntlets so as to ensure that they are correct. So I am afraid that you will need to wait until I am satisfied that they are ready for posting or you can buy a kit for $200 there are a number of excellent craftsman on this board that put out quality work.

    I have created a number of Fett templates and most of the scratch built equipment that you will see here on the board is a result of those templates.

    Alan

    P.S. One more thing to consider I post all of my templates for free.

    Edit: I don't know if I read that used 3D Max to design the gauntlets (maybe i just saw it in scanning) but I was wondering if you designed those in SolidWorks.

    thanks,

    No the Gauntlets have been done completely in AutoCAD. I am in the process of learning Solidworks, but I am a long way from being product with it yet. At some point I will most likely bring them in to Solidworks, to make it easier to resize them, but it will be a while yet.

    I use AutoCAD 2006 for my 2D and 3Ds MAX 7 for my 3D stuff.

    Hello,

    I know that I have been away from these for awhile and many folks have been asking on updates for Boba’s gauntlets templates. Well you are in for a pleasant surprise. I have to admit that I have been extremely frustrated at my lack of progress on these templates. They have been the most time consuming and complicated Fett project that I have done so far. So at the encouragement of MOJO-Fett (Gavin) I have managed to finally get the draft set of templates near completion and Gavin took on the tasks of reorganizing my mess of template parts into a much more user friendly form, from which he has done a fantastic job assembling the prototypes. Thank you my friend!

    There are a few more thinks to work out before the final templates will be posted, so stay tuned!

    Material used is 1mm Foamex (Sintra) So on to the pics;

    Alan just needs to finish off the bottom halves then I can mould into shape, then I'll cover all the outer edges with bondo (filler) then round them off. The assembly is really easy with Alan's templates with minor tweeks for lay flat patterns.
    More pics will follow once I've bought more Sintra and constructed the outer section to the right gaunt that has the 2 hoses.

    Another great free resource for the scratchbuilders in the community provided by Alan. I hope people appreciate the beauty of your work man. I will be all over this when I finish work on the helmets.

    Hey Alan, patience is a virtue? no worries when they are ready bud, going foamex shopping this morning so more updates on the gauntlets to come. Alan I think I've had a good idea for the ROTJ flamethrower too... I'll send you the file.
    Again thanks allot for this mate, without all of your research and time none of this would happen.
