My sintra built gauntlets

    My sintra built gaunts (now with templates)

    Well, after what seems like endless hours of cutting and shaping and bondo-ing and sanding and sanding, here they are. I just finished the first paintjob, and they still need weathering. Let me know what you think.

    Just added the templates I used to build these. They should all print on 8.5"x11" paper. Keep in mind that these are very rough and will need a lot of work. But its a good starting point, I hope.

    I started With curved halves of sintra that fit around my arm and built everything on top of those.

    Here are some construction pics to show how I put them together. Please note that these are rough templates and should be adjusted as needed to fit your arms. There were also many small areas that I filled with bondo instead of trying to cut small pieces of plastic for.

    I epoxied a hinge down the one side and the other side closes with magnets available at http://amazingmagnets.com/products.asp?ID=1000-10-1400 . I used P125AH.

    Feel free to PM me with any questions you may have.

    Very nice work! Gauntlets have got to be one of the toughest pieces to fabricate.

    Are those light bright pegs for darts?

    Thanks Chewiepal.

    I think the part you are refering to is the "Gauntlet Missle" on the top of the left gauntlet. I bought that off of one of the members here. It is made of resin. If you ask around, you probably could find one.

    A Lite Bright is a kids toy. Just google it and you can find info on it if ya need.

    Thanks for the complinents,
    Justin
