    Jun 1, 2015, 2:26 PM - ISBEARs ESB build thread (question thread) #1

    Hello there.
    I figured I finally had to make a build thread to show of work that is done, and work yet to be finished.
    And I always have a ton of questions, so I needed a place to ask those well hidden answers So this is me a couple a months ago, I have recieved a bunch of parts since then, but havent had time for them before now.

    First up. my Gauntlet Flamethrower. looking at the crl. and a couple of others, realised it is not 100% accurate, would any gml react on it? where thinkin of upgrading to a metal one later on.


    And also. I looked for two alco switches for teh right gauntlet, but it seems there is a lot of variations, and the closest one are rather expensive, anyone found a decent site selling good switches?

    I think the Flamer will be fine for basic 501st clearance/GML purposes.

    Alco switches are about $13 a pop. they are pricey. BUT if your not going to use them for anything and just have them for looks, there are a few variations around that are cheaper but look the same. like MPE405R The switch itself looks the same, but the base is much bigger and has like 12 prongs on it lol. you can make em work on most gauntlets id think, and they are cheaper. Another option is a resin cast. Not sure who, if anyone, sells them, but i am planning on making them for my upcoming gauntlet kits so i can send you a couple when i send you your armor, which is just about done BTW. Going to be starting your Jetpack soon

    Who was your flamethrower maker, if you don't mind me asking?
