    Oct 20, 2008, 8:29 PM - My new MOW gaunts in progress (Pic Heavy) #1

    Well I promised Christian I would wait to post anything until he had a chance to get a post out. So here are my new MOW ROTJ gauntlets!!!! These things are beautiful!!!!!!

    Here is a progress to where I am now!























    Waiting on some epoxy to dry then a little sanding and silver on the left gaunt. Little bit of masking. Little bit of Rock Island Maroon. Little bit of Weathered black. Remove the masking and oh yeah baby!!!

    If he is doing a run of 10 some peeps better jump on these!!!!

    Levi,

    Looking good man..Be sure and clean up the bottom edges before you go any further. Lay a flat large piece of med-grit sandpaper down on a smooth surface then run the gauntlets and other details across it..Works well. Keep them pictures coming

    Well here they are! All I am missing is the small 4 darts on the right gaunt. They are on order and should be here by the weeks end or next week. I used a Radio Shack LED kit to make the arming light blink. $4.00 not bad. Ready to go out of the box.

    Air brush colors used:

    Rock Island Maroon
    Weathered Black
    Brunswick Green
    Bright Silver

    Started with a coat of silver. Then masking fluid the damage. Then RIM. Next Weathered Black. Then misted BG in the nooks and cranny's. Peel off masking. Touch up any silver. Coat of Dull Coat and that's it.


    Let me know what you think. And these were my first so be gentle but honest.

    ok gentle but honest (honest is easy, gentle? not so much)
    Your scratches are not accurate.
    the "switch" on the left gaunt needs to be black
    The calc pad buttons need darker colors for the buttons

    Minus that (I'm no ROTJ guru) I think they look sick! I like the deeper/darker red and the weathering. I've seen some guants look too bright red and I think that looks ******. One of the biggest reasons I'm more into the ESB Fett is that the ROTJ's back pack and gauntlets are a bitt too colorful for me.

    Good work man!!!
