    Wow!! Everyone's gauntlets look amazing!!! ~hides mess~

    Ahem, so I have a question... Can someone post a picture of the back end of the left gauntlet? I cannot figure it out! Or find a picture... It has the strange little cut out, and...I'm not really sure what's going on. Any help would be awesome!!!! PM's work too.

    I'll post a picture of the right gaunt as soon as its cleaned up and less embarrassing looking... lol It's sturdy though! I can through it at the wall without worry.

    What technique are you guys using to shape your cuffs. The greeble parts of the gauntlets are no big deal, but I cant figure out the clam shell. I get curled ends, warping etc.

    Any pointers would be helpfull

    Hiya, If you are using 1mm Sintra? try cutting the clam shell shape with the 'grain' running lengthways - YES it has a grain of sorts... this will enable you to warm it through in hot water (not boiling) and keep the curl/form without deforming the sides..

    Hey guys.. just a couple of updates, first the upper clamshell for the right Gauntlet, secondly the outer section to the right Gauntlet... More to follow when I have formed the lower clamshells (when I get the materials )
    Hay mojo, i noticed one one of your clamshells you did a slice and dice job then wrapped it. Did you use sintra and not cut all the way through, and just use that as a nice controlled bend then bondo it?

    That seems like it would be the way to go, as long as your patient wiht the scoring

    Ok, I'm still a relative newb to the world of Fett but try as I might I can't determine if these WOF gauntlet blueprints are for the ROTJ or ESB version. Because I'm going to have to make the ROTJ gauntlets.

    Someone care to enlighten me? Without the lynching,

    Thanks.

    No worries, I just recently finished construction on my gauntlets using these patterns. All the parts are there in files if you want to do ESB or ROTJ.



    Still have some work to do on them, but all in all they turned out pretty good. I'll try to get some better pictures

    I guess I didn't word that very well... I was interested in finding out exactly what the diffs are between the 2 versions. Sorry. No worries though, I'll keep lookin around.

    bumping this back up... after shattering my fiberglass gauntlets pretty nicely, i decided to use these templates to build a replacement.

    i've got the upper shell of the left gaunt almost done. i just have to do a bit more sanding to smooth out the bondo. it's looking great. these templates are very well done!!

    i've taken a bunch of progress pics, but haven't pulled them off the camera yet. hopefully tonight i'll get them posted.

    o.k. I have the blueprints, stencled, cut and so on. They look great so far thanks to your plans however I'm having difficulties with my abstract spacial reasoning... I can't seem to figure out the assembly of the gauntlet sleeves themselves. Any suggestions or directions would muchly appreciated

    First off.. welcome aboard? maybe introduce yourself in the intro thread so that we know a little about ya etc...

    Ok, you mean the lower clams?
    If you look at post #124 you will see how I did mine - 2 layers of 1mm foamex (or Sintra for USA) glued together then at both ends of the clam you have an extra 1mm thick shim part that glues to the inner surface to give the impression of depth...

    Sorry, didn't mean to be rude. Hi, I'm Arjae. I'm experienced with costume design but technologically challenged (be kind, I just got e-mail last week). I've been working on my custom beskar'gam for the past month and a half and after a few difficulties, it's finally turning out the way I wanted...except the gauntlet sleeves. Using 1/8"sintra and I don't know how this little puzzle works...left over pieces

    this may be a very silly question, but are the upper and lower clamshells of the one piece or are the left as two pieces and attacehd by some sort of clasp.... i've used the WoF blueprints for my helmet which turned out amazing, and im excited to start on the guantlets but need this figured out before i start out... thanks so much

    Hey guys. I'm working on my left gauntlet, and i found some parts that i'm not sure of where to put.
    I think i found the wide ones just now, used inside the gauntlets. But the long thin ones in the pics is a mystery for me.
    Can anyone identify these???
    Thanks

    Just discovered these - might be teh answer to my gauntlet woes - still makes me fear them. Guess I won't know until I give it a shot. i really need info on how to put them together etc.

    These are very thorough! My brain hurts looking at how intricate these Blue Prints are!

    Hey bud,

    The 2 curved parts are for the inside of the gauntlets, there should be 2 of each? the smaller ones are glued to the inner rim (around the wrist) these are to give the impression of thicker material...
    The other 2 strips are I believe to be for the Flamethrower?
