    Man of War gauntlets and jetpack

    I purchased a set of Man of War gauntlets and jet pack. They are incredible looking. My problem is this:
    Does anybody have, or know where to find the tutorial to assemble both items?

    I think I'm the guy Fett 4 Real is talking about...

    What exactly do you need help with?

    There is some drilling of holes involved to place screws. I suggest that you make any holes on the gautlets a little bigger than the screws. This way you can reposition the flamethrower or missle if its not exactly centered. I used JB KWIK to keep the screws in place. I used GOOP glue to stick on the hinges. (its the best adhesive... just have to keep it clamped together a couple of hours) I did not use the clips Christian supplied to close the gauntlets. I used GOOP to secure 3 small magnets on the tops and bottoms of the gauntlets. This will make them easier to put on and take off myself. And the 3 magnets feel secure enough... if not I can always swap out for stronger ones.

    I haven't worked on these in a week because my right gauntlet and two bottoms had a bad reaction to the paint (the baint was bad - it didn't spray but streamed out)... I was putting on the green layer and it all bubbled up... I used spray on paint remover to get the layers off. It left some pits in the gaunts but with a good sanding or two and a couple of coats of sandable primer (I plan to use auto primer) everything should be back to normal... and I can resume documenting my build... anyway... sorry to hijack your thread... just let me know if I can answer something for you! Good luck!

    Brother Solo,

    I am currently working on the MOW JP myself. I have just started and am a total noob. I would be happy to help in what ever way I can (Though it may be limited) I am learning as I go as well. Fell free to PM me with what ever questions you may have....And you are correct MOW's stuff is incredible looking....
