As always these look great, Alan. Fantastic Work! One day I'll attempt to make them. I've used your templates for almost everything else might as well give these a try too.
Hey Chewie... where is the update on your gauntlets? look forward too seeing your pics buddy.
those are just insane. Well done guys
WOW!! Iím gone a week and you guys go crazy! Looks like there are a number of great builds going on and even one in metal, very cool! great job guys. Canít wait to see the finished projects.
Glad to see that folks likes them.
As for the rocket cradle I have to agree with MOJO-Fett this is one piece that is better off being a cut to fit part, but if folks insist I will make exact flat pattern. The other part is still in work, I didnít want it hold up the release of the templates. It is also a part that should be easy to take some scrap and cut to fit. I have started a flat pattern for it, but just havenít had the time to finish it.
Hi, I was bussy, but now (today, to be exactly) I have start with this project....so here you have after 2 ours, my firt advance....

Dang..those look awesome!
thanks kashyyyk!!! nothing of this could be posible without the help of WOF and MOJO-FETT...
I finished this little puppy in about four hours today. I built it out of an old metal "Beware of Dog" sign and thin cardboard. The clamshells are shut with velcro and open with a hinge that is attached with brads, because the screws were WAY too long. I'll more pictures tomorrow after I spackle and paint it. And I just realized that I left that little box on the top off...so I'll have to do that.
kashyyyl, well done job!!!
this is my fav...
today I have started with the rigth one, it's more trickie, at least working with pvc...tomorrow more advances...
WOW!!!!!! Egats..thats amazing!!
I go away for a couple of days and you guys are doing some great work with those Gauntlets...CP Wow!! nice work there my freind....
CGN... I used 1mm Foamex board and layered it with the inner and outer halves, then included another 'rim' to give the clams further depth? Hope that helps? or I can send ya some pics if ya want?
