    Left Gauntlet Flame-Thrower Construction Question

    I am about to finish up this piece and wanted to know if the inside of the FT (nozzle) should be painted prior to inserting the 2 nozzles.

    I was going to glue the 2 holed attachement in and then when it is all done and painted, just glue in the 2 nozzles.

    Sound right?

    Hey JB, I assembled the nozzels on to the 2 hole support separate to make sure that they where glued the right way. Then I painted the inside of the flamethrower in aluminum and after it was dryed just attached the entire (painted and weathered) nozzel setup to the flamethrower housing. After that I just glued the bottom part of the flamethrower.

    I then painted the flamethrower covering the nozzels so that they would not get painted.

    I found it easyer to assemble the nozzel setup first.

    I hope I was of some help.
