I've started to put together my Man Of War Return of the Jedi gauntlets and I think I've run into a problem. The left gauntlet top and bottom don't match up. They do at the back but as it moves to the front of the gauntlet the outside of the bottom piece slants down and away from the top. The inside of the left gauntlet matches up just fine top and bottom. Do I need to heat up and reshape the bottom piece or is the outside of the bottom piece supposed to attach to the flame thrower body somehow? I was going to try Cruzer's hinge system but I can't see how to make them work if the top and bottom pieces don't line up.
I'm pretty new to all of this and don't know where to go from here. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
