    Looking good, RussRep.

    FYI--When you post an image, you might want to leave out any spaces in the filename. Some browsers (Netscape) may not be able to display an image with spaces in the filename. You might consider using an underscore "_" or dash "-" instead of a space.

    Re: UP DATE.RussRep's aluminum gauntlet missle project RIBSDONE

    Can you show a pic of the finished one and show us how it attaches to the gaunt? I don't see a "base" on it like the resin ones.

    Re: UP DATE.RussRep's aluminum gauntlet missle project RIBS

    I can't tell by looking at your pics, Russ, but did you make the ribbing go all the way around the missle? If so, you did more work that necessary. There should only be six ribs total without any on the bottom section.

    bobafettish, I thought I understood the design of the ribs, but maybe I don't. What do you mean when you say,

    "There should only be six ribs total without any on the bottom section." ??

    Same here. I have machined the ribs all the way round. But i am leaving the drilled taped holes till they are finished. Just in case some wants bigger or smaller holes!
    I should have some new pics tomorrow.

    Re: .RussRep's aluminum gauntlet missle project CONE BEING DONE

    The only visible ribs on the ROTJ MoM exhibit are the six on top. If you look closely, the bottom (underside) of the rocket is smooth, to make it easier to glue/screw onto the gauntlet.



    So by grooving the entire thing, Russ, you did more work than really needed. But what GREAT work it is!

    Cheers mate. As long as you guys dont have any probs attaching it, It will be fine.

    Actually, it appears there are two wider ribs at the sides of the bottom, as shown in the above photo, but the absolute bottom appears to be flat with no ribs. I'll dig up the pics.

    WOW! Great job on the cone, man! And it appears the holes are lined up nicely and all the same size. Only a small part left to do, eh?

    Re: RussRep's aluminum gauntlet missle projectNEW PICS CONE

    So how many ribs are there total on yours, Russ? Not to sound like a broken record either, but what kind of price range are we looking at for one of these?

    Re: RussRep's aluminum gauntlet missle projectNEW PICS CONE

    Hi mate i have done the ribs all the way round. But i still have not drilled or tapped any holes for you to attach. I was going to put 4mm tapped holes but i am going to wait and see what people want . For 1 missile shipped will be $174 . I've machined 6 which 2 are sold so i have 4 left. If you are in UK Total price P+P is 105. The missiles will be finished in 3-4 days i will be doing a first come first serve basis, I also will be starting other batch of 6 missiles in a few weeks. Any questions please get in touch.
    Many thanks

    Looks great Russ! Any chance you could give us the length of the missle? It might help to see where you arrived at for some of us trying to fit it in our gauntlets.

    Also,will you be making these for a while?
