    Evening-

    I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me what the different colored dash lines mean. I am assuming that they are where to fold/bend the material, but I was just unsure if the different colors meant different things.

    This is shaping up to be a very confusing puzzle!

    HI,

    I am attempting to build a set of gauntlets from the gauntlet blueprints and ran into a few problems. I am not sure what the correct length is for each gauntlet, but my arms measure at 10 3/4 inches from outer elbow to wrist and 8 1/2 inches from inner elbow to wrist. Are the templates supposed to be scaled up or down and if so, would that not affect the space where the MQ-1 keypad is positioned, for example the cutout would now be too large or too small.

    Also, is there a most preferred material to build these out of? For example styrene or build a blank and then cold cast or fiberglass?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    -Frank

    Thanks Alan, I found this really helpful. Does anyone have a good suggestion on what type of base to use? I was thinking foam but 1/4 in might not be stiff enough.

    I have small arms. Measuring out circumference, it's 6.5 inches at the wrist and 10 inches where Boba's gauntlet should end with an overall gauntlet length of 7.5 inches. How much should I scale down by? As it's relevant, I'm using the A4 template which I need to fit to page at 320%. original size.

    Wow Alan you are amazing. Seriously I used your template for the helmet, and it worked great, now I'm probably use all of your templates for boba armor! Oh yeah, just out of curiosity, does anyone know where I could find a 3d print file for the gauntlets?

    It seems that the download page is down, so I added the attachment here for everyone:

    A4 files:
    Left gauntlet BF LTG FlatPat A4 A.pdf
    Right gauntlet BF RTG FlatPat A4 A.pdf

    LTR files:

    Thanks very much, RafalFett! I was getting worried that I had missed something since I couldn't open WOF's links!

    ROTJ Gauntlets. what Humbrol paint is used for the Gauntlets? Some say its the same as the Mandibles but others say its a couple shades lighter. Can I use humbrol 73 only instead of mixing with 100 to get the lighter look?

    Some insight and a final verdict on this?

    Sheet metal tip that might work with paper templates....

    Go for the inner diameters with dimensions and offset out the thickness of the material. When I lay out sheet metal flats, anything less than 7 gauge (.1875 inches/4.76mm), that is the only area where you have to account for an inside and outside radius on a 90 degree bend that is greater than material thickness. I have not experimented yet with paper, but I'd take a micrometer reading of the material you are using to make items.

    How do these compare to the ESB gauntlets? Is there a difference?

    Wow! these look great, I was wondering if these need to be scaled for a 57 adult?
