    Left ROTJ Gauntlet Hoses

    Most reference pics of the left ROTJ gauntlets are missing the hoses for the flame thrower and a few show the hoses but not detailed enough to see how they are connected. Is it the same way the right gaunt is set up with hoses such as using 1/4" al. rods or copper pipes inserted into brass fittings? Just wondering what and how most of you have done for connecting hoses on the left ROTJ gauntlet. If you can, please post with pics. Thanks!

    I am by no means an expert, but if you examine the screen shots from ROTJ, youŽll see that there is no hose connected to the left gauntlet, as far as I can see..

    I have scoured screen shots from ROTJ, and no hoses on the left gaunt, but the SE ROTJ has a hose duct taped to the missile.That is it.None to the flamethrower.
    The prepro has what looks to be 2 hoses connected to the rear of the left gauntlets just under and to the left of the rear of the missile.

    I agree with you both as I've done a lot of research myself and I concur with you wickedbeard about the prepro Boba having the hoses on the left gaunt. Here is a pic of it and thanks to both of you for responding:

    Here is another pic of a ROTJ exhibit with a hose connected to the rocket on the left gaunt.

    The above photo is of the Don Post Deluxe statue. In ROTJ, the left gauntlet did not have any hoses attached to it.

    ucky

    and I cant stand the hose to the missle lol. It doesnt make since to me , I'd assume the missle has its own rocket/ignition system and wouldnt need a hose to it. Where would the hose go when you shot the rocket?
