I love painting the gauntlets. It's probably my favorite. Great job on these! Are those RKD?
Wow Matt, those gaunts are coming along beautifully bro!
There's a guy on etsy selling metal dental expanders for $10. I don't have a real one for comparison, but I think this is pretty awesome. Super clean and ready to paint right out of the envelope. Very impressed.
This thing is tiny! I guess I never thought about how small they would have to be to fit in that little spot on the gauntlet.
That casting is freakin beyond incredible bro, super score at a smoking price, wow
Yeah bro, those things are TINY lol
Lookin better and better every time I see it. Great job man!
Wow..... It's amazing how you put this all together. It looks like Jeremy Bulloch is just hanging out in the Boba costume at your house. Bravo man, just stunning work on this.
I'm gona be so sad when this thread ends. awesome.
Excellent work dude......
This is so pretty
Ok fellas, flamethrower time. Reference pics of this thing seem to be hard to come by. This is one of the better ones I could find. If anyone has any good ones, please share.
All of the replicas vary greatly, so I'm just going by reference photos and kind of doing whatever I think looks good. This is where I'm at now.
One thing I'm not quite sure about are the colors. I see a lot of people making parts white now (like the piano key block things), but I don't see any white in the photos. I see silver, black, and red. What's the consensus on this?
I would hit up Raf. If there is a good pic of the flamethrower, either he has it or knows where to find it.
this is awesome, how tall is your mannequin/Fett?
Thanks guys, I figured Raf would have some info. Knowing that there are two differing paint schemes for the left gauntlet, could it be possible that the flame unit is painted differently too? In that dining scene pic it really looks like some parts are white, but in the others everything looks silver. Also, in the "shooting at Luke" pic I don't see any red on the middle gas cannister thingy. Maybe it's just the photos.
The only major difference between the left gauntlet in some of the stills (or scenes) is that big gray scratch at the base of the joint section; I did not saw other noticeable differences, so I say is the same gauntlet with that reparation during the filming.
Interesting. So if this is the case a lot of guys around here might have to break out the silver paint.
