    Nov 2, 2008, 11:11 PM - New ROTJ MOW Gaunts #1

    Got the new ROTJ gauntlets from MOW. These things rock. I wanted to share the work so far. I hope im doing these things justice. I have alot of painting to do and some minimal assembly and they are done.

    22,

    Sorry Buddy I'm just a little confused here..The polystyrene bottom sections should be permanently attached to the resin upper portions of your gauntlets. That's what the plug inserts are designed for. They're not supposed to be used as a type of fastener but a clean-n-simple way of bonding the 2 halves together. The velcro closure is the only section that should separate from the finished gauntlet..Or am I just reading your photos wrong ?

    i love em!! i am no expert on the rotj's, but i think they look great!! one suggestion, and i may be waaay off...but do you have enough damage put on? i have seen some with more, but like i said, i may be off...if you got mojo's mow pics and you followed those, you are probably good...personally, less is more...ironically, Christian told me that waaaaay back when, so... i think they look great!! i need to get on mine... closer pics of the attatchment would be great too!

    I did scale back a tad. I figure I can always add more! Good eye buddy.
