New FP ESB Flamethrower

    New FP ESB Flamethrower

    Over the last few weeks FP and I have been collaborating on a new design for his ESB Flamethrower.
    With a ton of seen and unseen reference photos with the help from Official Pix, I think we've put together something that is much closer to what we've all had questions about, IMO.

    • I will first post assembled pics of the left ESB gauntlet. (pics below)
    • Then I will post a few of the separated parts of the flamethrower.
    • and lastly I will post comparison shots with some of the photos used...and only photos we've all seen to date unfortunately.
    * With that being said, if there was One clear photo that was out there I personally have yet to see it, and if it did exist you can bet I would try my hardiest to get permission to post it for All..... but for now I think what FP has created is a great "interpretation" and a fresh design.

    And yes folks, these new flamethrower's (with Aluminum rods) will be in the new FP gauntlet kits that are going out as we speak.

    Enjoy the pics.....special thanks to GBH for his input.

    PARTS:

    Not shown: The "piano keys do come off"...all four.

    And I will be painting this in the next few days to help determine what is painted, and what is not.

    Whoa!! That looks awesome guys! I love how with that extra layer, it pushes it off of the gauntlet a little more, keeping it that much farther away from getting in the way of your hand. I can't wait until I have some FP Gauntlets!!

    Question, will they be supplied with the aluminum rods, or will they be all resin?

    Good point Andy.... that is called a "spacer"
    We had to come up with made-up names for each part we were talking about over the phone.

    Love seeing all the new components in a pre-assembly mode, it all came together beautifully! Can't wait to get my kit along with the new accurately sized machined gauntlet rocket with copper tip!

    Will these be available on their own? I bought an old FP set from someone and would love to upgrade the flamethrower.

    Actually, no .. the pics weren't THAT good. I wish This particular aspect was all old fashioned "best guess" work. It seemed to be the only logical explanation for what's been boggling at least me for years. But it is interpretive and is obviously subject to change if we ever get a good look at the real deal. But thanks man


    Thanks everyone !

    Re: New FP ESB Flamethrower

    I'm going to drool on mine when I get them, does that count as weathering? :P

    Spideyfett, any chance you can supply a paint color guide of sorts on this thread after you paint it? I've collected a few ref. photos, but I'd love to see what you come up with.

    Thanks,
    Timmer

    Would there be a chance of the back plate being made from aluminum? I would love to make that lovely piece an addition to my current flame unit...

    Hey spidey how bout a cold cast back plate? Just wondering. Cause machining them from alluminum would be very expensive.
