    Hey guys. this is one of those aluminum flame throwers that were selling a few weeks back. anyway i painted it first with flat black. then added racing orenge and finnaly added lots of weathering by making scratches, scuffs, & hit it with acouple matches to get that sooty burnt look. i love this peice & if you guys ever have the chance to grab one, DO IT! its just such a beutiful peice. anyways im tired so ima go to sleep now. tell me what you guys think plz. any changes you think should be done ect... thanks guys,
    Dana
    also if anyone is wondering what i used for the hoses/ pipes i used aluminum piping from my local model shop. ya just cant beat daves model shop

    That's for the ESB gauntlet, correct? I know, a dumb question, but I gotta know as I just got my gauntlet kit in the mail this morning and was wanting to find some reference photos of the complete kit that I could work from.
