    Those look incredible and the reasoning behind the construction is fantastic. Thanks FP for another great contribution to both the JB project and TDH.

    Ok Heres my plea: I really think I should be first on the list or at least near the top somewhere. As I have gone round and round, talking to those close, making phone calls, sending pms here and there, aside from god himself, trying to get ahold of Chris for at least 2 years for a set of his gauntlets. I know for a fact I even went to the horses mouth first. Failure.
    All of whom I spoke to about them know who you are. Ahem...
    I felt like I was trying to catch a greased pig...not that I ever have.
    But really Chris, these are beautiful and I'm sure pictures don't do the details justice. I would finally after all my failed efforts, love to have a set.
    Pretty please with sugar on top!!!
    Now after all that when the time comes I won't have funds just to spite myself
    This is the last of what armor I need to complete my 4 year (heck I've lost count) ESB Fett. All I know is I've seen more Fetts completed that were started long after me. Whining session over.

    Alex, you really need to learn how to use that camera, cuz it's making the gauntlets look. . . green!
    Everyone knows the gauntlets should be red.

    I've always preferred ROTJ Fett, but nothing has ever made me want to do an ESB suit more. Absolutely beautiful!

    Some photo tips.

    Try to mess with the light settings. Try taking pictures by selecting the Tungsten setting or Flourescent setting. You probably have it on Auto.

    it looks like you have flourescent lighting at your house.

    I'm no pro, but these setting have worked for me.

    if you camera has manual white balance, that's the best way (imo) to get perfect color.

    shoot a photo of just a white sheet of paper in the lighting you are using. nothing but the paper should show up in viewfinder.

    then use that to be the baseline of white. the color should be balanced perfectly to your lighting.

    that's what i do with my camera (canon rebel xt)

  25. Apr 23, 2008, 3:20 PM - Re: JB project/ FP "NEW" ESB Gauntlets!!!! #75

    I did not want to start a new thread for a simple question, but what would the real part be for the little knobs on the ESB lanyard launcher.I have seen LED's, and what looks to be screws on JB's, and screen pics are very limited.
    Any help would be great.
