    CC Jango gauntlets

    It's been a while since I've posted anything so I wanted to share a little project I've been working on. There was a little bit of troubleshooting needed with the top shells due to all of the surfaces, edges, and the CC layer being sensitive to other layers of resin; but I think I've finally figured them out.

    Now, the flamethrower is what's giving me the most trouble. A solid CC flamethrower weighs in at about 15.5 oz. ( or 1 lb.). So I've been experimenting with lightweight resin filled casts. I'll probably try a few hollow casts before deciding the best way to cast the flamethrower.

    Enjoy

    Looks good! I think you have the right idea with the hollow flamethrower. A CC flamethrower is very heavy. My FP CC flamethrower is hollow and it still weighs a bunch.

    As soon as I can dial in the flamethrower, they're yours!

    I'll give a hollow cast a try and see what happens. Thanks guys for the positive feedback. I appreciate it.:thumbup

    I won't be doing any runs, but I'll accept a few orders with a late June/early July ship date.

    Alright, I finally got a result I'm happy with and I think others will be as well. The flamethrower weighs in at exactly 9 oz. which feels pretty good in the hand.

    What version of Windows and IE are you using? I know some people have been having issues with Windows 7 using IE 8.

    Ahh!! I think you are correct. That's the problem I'm experiencing. I did notice a difference when the automatic update kicked in and installed the latest version of IE 8.

    Now, How do I fix this problem. It's seems very annoying.

    Yours are already completed and have been added to your "big box of goodies."

    Gee2, I shipped your kit out on Friday via USPS Priority and you should be seeing them Monday or Tuesday.

    I was able to decrease the flamethrower weight by another ounce or two by casting the entire inner part in lightweight resin. So the left gauntlet should feel really good when worn.
