Ok guys. With the help of the amazing mold-masters, Postmortem and slavefive, I should be finishing up my Jango gauntlet molds this weekend. In exactly one week I begin my 3 week winter vacation and will be in a very good position to attempt a small run of gauntlets in either cold cast or non-cc. I have already placed an order for 5 lbs. of aluminum filler from a highly recommended UK source, that is expected to arrive sometime next week along with some resin coming from within the U.S.
If you don't mind, what I'd like to find out is approximately how much possible interest there is for a set of Jango guantlets pulled from molds of the master sculpts seen in my build-up thread (see post #123). http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f28/my-latest-project-20704/
The price range I'm shooting for is somewhere between $200-$250 for a kit that includes the following:
I'd say my gauntlet sculpts are made to proportionately fit anyone who is 5'6"-5'11", but could fit a broader height range depending on build and/or forearm size.
- 4 halves
- flamethrower unit
- flamethrower nozzles
- whipcord unit
- right hose attachment
- 2 pieces of Dark-Side hinge for exposed hinge
- 2 pieces of Home Depot hinge for hidden hinge/pin closure
- Halo_1 accurate LED
- 2 Radio Shack toggle switches (discounted price for large quantities)
- All Electronics' slider switch
- 10' of .43" o.d. clear nylon braided blue hose (already dyed)
If everything goes as planned, I should have pics up of a completed set by the middle or end of next week.
This really isn't a comittment thread at this time, but just a thread so I can get an idea of the amount of interest...if any at all.
If by now everyones' needs have been met...I'm happy.
