    These are FP's older fiberglass gaunts that i just finished up for PEEL.I changed the flamethrower nozzles, and tubes from resin to metal matching them as close as possible, as well as installing, and painting and weathering the machined missile and darts he sent me.I believe those are from russrep.Correct me if I am wrong bro.
    The lower shells are actually jango style as Chris thought these would match up to the top shells nicely.
    the gaunts fit a bit tight though, so I think I am just gonna make some of my larger metal lower shells to add more room for the flightsuit and make them more comfy to wear.
    anyhoo, here they are .I took some pics with flash and the others outside.

    I'll I can say is WOW. These are a thing of beauty as promised. They are RussRep machined parts. Anyone that doubts this man's talents, look no further. Communication was phenomenal and he obviously went above and beyond. I can't thank you enough.

    Just found this thread. Wow. So very awesome. You are tempting me to start on an ESB just so I can have more of your work in my possession.

    Hey Mike,
    I'd say I'm at about the 50% mark (although I don't know really how to measure it). Armour and helmet a few months out (will be well worth the wait though). Soft parts should be ready imminently.....Ran into a few snags with girth, boots and braids. Hopefully all will get sorted out soon. Looking for early next year to finish up. That would put me at around the year mark....Woo Hoo....
