    Does anyone have a link to a good MOW ESB gauntlet tutorial? I just got these today and they are amazing. I'm just nervous to begin with out seeing someone with more skill than I attempting it. Cheers in advance.

    What come assembled? My set isn't assembled at all. I'm looking for instructions really. I think there is an assumption that I know Boba gaunts inside and out. I don't. Everything I have found so far on the forums talks about fully assembled kits. Is that how they USED to come? Am I missing something? Any advice from you pros out there would be appreciated.

    Did you but them on ebay I assume? His ebay kits come unassembled. You need to get the gauntlets all straight and what not...as far as the seam areas. Which version BTW? The missle gets the nylon screws for attachment. The little plug in the bags are used to attach the hinges and clasps to the gauntlets your supposed to drill them attach them by putting the plugs through the clasp through the gauntlet. Then trim the excess off epoxy them into the gauntlet. And attach everything after cleaning and sanding whatever you need to. I know its kinda vague, I havent started putting mine together but I Ive found a good amount of things to help. Ill post a few links Ive bookmarked that have helped me.

    Thanks F4R,

    I did get them off of Ebay. I wasn't aware of the assembled versions found here. These links do help, as do your not-so-vague instructions.

    I've toyed with the idea of using earth magnets to attack chest armour, but realized they'd interfere with the chest electronics.

    I'll return the "link" favour.

    I'll be recieving mine (ESB style) very soon. I'm looking at the links F4R posted as well. I bought mine from MOW from here and he told me doesn't put them together anymore. I'm OK with that... I've either assembled everything else I have or scratchbuilt myself anyway. Good luck with your build!

    Edit: I found this thread with a tutorial Christian posted. It't from 2008 so it may nor reflect what exactly should be done with newer gauntlets. Hope this helps!

    Thanks CC,

    This is very helpful. While it's not the "same" kit, the assembly is similar. It's little bits of help like this from you and Fett4Real that I love about TDH.

    Cheers guys.

    Also on the right gauntlet the top gauntlet the inner area needs to be trimed up, if you look at photos of the actual gauntlet you will see what i mean as far as that goes theres a square of material that needs to be removed and great finding the post i searched just didint scroll through enough on that post

    Also this is for the old version not the same as the new ones...but kinda the same idea for the plugs. I did pick up some extra nylon screws at home depot for the left flame thrower to add extra strength, I really cant wait to get home to put them together
