    Jun 20, 2008, 11:44 AM - Ruffkin Gauntlets finished #1

    hey guys, got my gauntlets done...well, mostly...i have a little bit of damage to do on the right gauntlet on the outside bottom, but wanted to get these posted since i had the chance to get to a computer...just for the record, the missile head is a drill bit from sears that i picked up since the one that came with the kit had too many bubbles in it for me to work with without totally destroying it... no offense, Chuck!! my skills arent that good yet with the dremmel and epoxy...i think i did a little bit too much on the upper part of the right gauntlet, but i am ok with it...i didnt want to have to go back and paint again... so we will deal...let me know what you guys think!! thanks for the input...

    pictures were too big again, so i am going to resize them...

    Not Bad D... looking good. ya mite want to dirty them up a bit tho? still very shiny...

    So what the deal with the front cone? was it so bad a cast to repair?
    Maybe shoot Chuck a PM and ask for another front cone...

    i dont know if it was that bad or not...i have no idea what to compare this cast too to a good one ...the little holes in the missile head had little bubbles and bumps in them...they werent REALLY bad, but when i tried to drill them out a little, i got them too big...so i did the drill bit instead...i know its not accurate, but i like the look of it, and i will do an aluminum one eventually...i want DougieFett's blaster, so that is where the money will go after the armor, and caboots...
