    I'm pretty sure that Frank-in-son Part 2 has a bad rep around here. If you get outbid, it would probably be for the best. Just a minute and I'll PM you some info on good gauntlets.

    By the way, awesome that you're in Iowa! What city do you live in?

    Good luck getting what is pictured. I have read some pretty bad things about this dude. I would go with everyone else...get a set of Ruffkin's. I have a set, and I love the hell outta them!

    unfortunately I was too late to retract my bid. If I am dissatified I will bondo and use my airbrush to really detail out the guants sell em off and buy ruffkins. I have a Minor in art and my stuff is rather physical. But i am sure I can do something to get them up to enough quality to get some of my cash back. I did that with my sandtrooper costume and what i was sold was really crap before i did a lot of heating sculptung and painting.

    Are there any 501st cons in the midwest? I know MAGE Con this year is going to have a masqurade ball ( with costume contest) and I have heard there are some Omaha 501st. Anyone know?

    There's DemiCon in Des Moines coming up at the end of July this year. I know I'll be going to that, and I should have my custom Mando done by then.
    Good luck with those gauntlets. I know from their Ebay pictures, they look very nice, but when someone else got them, they were not the product pictured.

    Man I am hoping this turns out. It really is the last part of my armor I need ( and can afford). If it doesn't I will be roasting the guy and demanding my money back. To be fair though IF the product is what is pictured ( which looks good) Then I won't have to do much painting to match my armor. Then it's hard to work on my 3 jet packs. Yes 3 I got a good start on my first and already a friend of mine wants me to do one ( but he wants a jet trooper) from battlefront II back pack.
