    Remember when I said I STILL wasn't done with this? Well, my gaunts have been bugging the crap out of me for a while now so I figured it was time to do something about it and...well, no time like the present, right?
    Huge thanks to Art for generously posting up pics and measurements of the Cevantes gauntlets a few years back. I made good use of them. Here's the ROTJ set in progress. Styrene pieces and LOTS of time. Filled in the edges and gaps with Tamiya white putty






    Next - primed and sanded

    And the first cast




    After that, I made a copy my original right upper and used that for a base with a few....ahem...adjustments









    Hit it with a little primer to see where I was at -


    And the first cast out of the mold -



    And of course I had to redo the bottom shells. I used the existing bases and modified those.



    And here are a few more shots of the individual uppers -








    And a family ROTJ photo


    In between these, I also managed to squeeze in a mod to my existing ROTJ flamethrower mold and add the nozzle tip flare to it. Pretty pleased with how it turned out





    That's it for now. ESB upper left gaunt is finished, just needs to be molded. Lower ESB left gaunt clamshell buck is completed as well. Pics soon!

    Thanks guys
    I got ya covered sleep
    Not quite ready for production on the ROTJ set yet. I need to order resin and shell shock (yes, I said shell shock), I will NOT be fiberglassing these. I have made a few out of resin and shell shock (the left gaunt pictured actually) and that stuff is fantastic.
    Here's a sneak peek of the upper left ESB gaunt -

    Just need to finish wet sanding and get this sucker molded up.
    I'll also be making forming bucks of all these as soon as I get the chance, for those that want to go with vacc'ed gaunts only all the way around.
