    Re: work in progress: WoF gauntlets

    Hey, I just found that if I see a bit down (in the WoF Gauntlets Templ. thread) I can download them for an A4.

    But thank you very much for your help

    ... pics, pics, pics, pics, ...

    i should get some pics up tomorrow... i'm almost done sanding the upper, and getting it all primed and smooth.

    i'll be picking up more silicone this week.

    ah, the thread is back from the dead!!!

    i took most of july and august off from prop building. i was busily looking for a new job, getting a new job, starting the new job, etc...

    but now that i've been here for a bit and am feeling somewhat settled, i've picked up on some long lost projects.



    i have another round of filler / sanding / priming, but i'm hoping to be ready for silicone this weekend!

    Those really look awesome man. Glad this thread is back.

    I have a question for you. are the right gauntlets completely round on both ends, or are they more deformed like if you took both halves, put them together, and squashed them down a bit.

    The templates end up making them a bit deformed, which looks good by eye at least. I think completely round would fit strangely.

    As far as how long they took... I have no idea at this point, since I went a month without even touching them (or anything else!)

    Re: work in progress: WoF gauntlets

    Brian, I was curious and still learning about molding, resin, etc. Have you created the gauntlets using the for sale sign and then applied Bondo over that and then sanded? Do you use something on the inside to strengthen it?

    that's basically it yeah.. the plastic is glued together on the inside with hot glue, then filler is used on the outside (i used water based wood putty and bondo). there's a wood frame on the inside that i built out of hot glue and dowels to make it stronger while i was handling it.

    i've never intended for the originals to be worn, so i wasn't worried about durability, just looks. they only have to survive the silicone to do their jobs

    Re: work in progress: WoF gauntlets

    Nice work! What kind of hinges did you use? Where'd you get 'em?

  18. #68

    Re: work in progress: WoF gauntlets

    hah... the right gauntlet has been sculpted for months, but i've gotten all distracted by the clone project. i'm hoping to mold it up in a week or two.

    the hinges are piano hinges from any hardware store. i got a pile from a friend, but home depot sells them.

    Re: work in progress: WoF gauntlets

    Thanks for posting your build... I've watched your work on your clone helmet for some time. Very impressive stuff!

    These look great stormtrooperguy! Just started working on a pair of these myself using Skip's pepakura files, just about to go and put the first coat of resin on them, hope they turn out half as good as yours did! lol Here are mine so far: http://joesprops.blogspot.com/2009/0...gauntlets.html If anyone has any suggestions please by all means let me know.

    Amazing,simply amazing.

    I'm just now slowly venturing into 100% scratch building,I'm gonna work on a Fett bucket first,then armor,and I believe I will end with some nice Fett gauntlets.I doubt they will turn out anywhere as nice as yours but one can only hope right?
