    My repainted/upgraded MOW ESB gauntlets and Jetpack!

    Here is my 2009 MOW ESB Jetpack. After building/painting Andy's pack, i realized mine was lacking, as i painted it 3yrs ago with less reference than i have now, so i decided to repaint it. I also got a more accurate "ring" that is between the pack and the rocket that has the correct 16 slots. The pack is loaded with metal parts! It has Dark-side's beacon, and thruster greeblies/activation buttons, a real dental file from Kurtyboy, The stabilizer is a Mojo-fett, and the rocket collar is from Serenity. The thrusters attach via earth magnets to an ABS plate glued inside the pack. The rocket breaks down in 2 pieces which are attached via earth magnets. The entire rocket unit is attached with a bolt and wingnut.



    Here are my 2009 MOW ESB Gauntlets. Since i redid the jetpack, i decided to redo the gauntlets as well for the same reasons. I added a newer MOW flamethrower i purchased from a member here, real MQ-1 keypad(not a cast), die-cast dental expander, Aluminum/copper rocket i got from a member here (TK286? i forget, my apologies), Gaunt darts are from Mojo-Fett. I also added the LED light on the right gauntlet that works via one of the toggle switches. The cast in MOW knobs weere removed with my dremel and i added 2 real dental files i got from Kurtyboy. I knew the gauntlets were a different color than the armor, so i used the color i will be using on my scratch built helmet, and eventually to repaint my Bobamaker helmet, which is Humbrol #78 applied with an airbrush. In my reference pictures i got from right here on TDH, it appears the color of the helmet and gauntlets are the same, or at least very very close. So thats why i chose that color. So here they are in their new painted glory!












    Hope you guys like em!
