    Foxbatkllr, I compared the hinge measurements posted on the web link you provided...and it looks like they're identical to the Home Depot stuff.


    Okay, thanks for letting me know. I figured the home depot stuff was thicker but I guess not.

    Sorry for being immature.

    In all seriousness Cruzer, I can't think of many people who put more work and attention to detail in their art. You honestly make me jealous. I can't wait to see your further progress on this project.

    Gave everything the final coat of professional auto primer with the spray gun today. Just need to do a little finish sanding to get everything nice and smooth, glue the hose fittings to the whipcord housing...and then they'll be ready to mold.

    Re: My latest project

    Thanks guys, I'm glad you're happy with them!
    I'm pretty happy with them also. However, they're being produced with you guys in mind and for your use, so let me know if there's anything you see that needs changing. I tried to capture all of the intricate details I felt I saw from both the CII & Paris ref. pics, from random shots like the Dressing the Galaxy runway show, and from Dark-Side's valuable input as well...even though he's still hesitant about them being "too big"!. I'm starting to think measuring rulers are smaller in Italy!.

    Great work! Those gauntlets looks sooooooo clean.
    Thanks. The type of feather-fill primer I used really works good on smoothing everything out...so I can't take all the credit. Unfortunately it also smooths out the fine details you want too keep, especially if it's sprayed on thick. So I have to go back and fine sand all the sharp corners and edges back, as well as re-etch the marks on the right gauntlet by the darts...but it's worth it!

    I wish I could throw some hinges on them and take em for a test run, but it'd ruin them for molding...and then I wouldn't be able to share!

    The length is still 8.5", and the inner "circumferences" are still approximately 9.5" at the wrist and 12.75" on the forearm, with the left gauntlet being adjusted accordingly so it sits slightly lower on the arm like in the ref. pics. Only reason I know this is because I did a test fit with leather gloves on before cutting the shells into halves.

    Any questions, let me know.

    Again, I'm honored you guys like em!:thumbup

    Ok Cruzer...
    i don't know how does work the geometry in the USA...but in italy if the diameter is 12.75", the circumference is:

    C= π d = 3,142 x d

    that in our case is:

    C= π d = 3,142 x 12.75" = 40"(101 cm)
    The question is:
    Can my girlfriend use your gauntles like a new starwars costume??
    Like:Hi,I am dressed like the right jango gauntlet,look how it fit on my waist!!!

    So, as i told you a loooooooootttt of time:

    THEY ARE TOOOOO BIG!!!!






    Lorenzo I'm just kiddind because you are a really great man(with HUGE forearms!!)

    Ok,sorry guys but I don't want confuse you...

    All the misuraments are "almost" perfect!
    I think they are only a little bit bigger in the circumferences than MOW.
    For the rest,trust me,they are pretty close to the reals!

    Always IMHO!!

    I think he is talking about the perimeters, not the diameters ...

    Am I wrong ?

    Re: My latest project

    ...ok, you guys are making me crazzzzyy!...in a good way!

    Ok, first I would never compare my amature work to what I consider the work of a "master builder" (MOW) here on the boards. So I won't do that. All I can do is take measurements of my new gauntlets and post them so others can see if they may be able to use them in their costumes.

    Let me snap a few pics and mark them with some dimensions and then I'll post them as soon as I can.

    All the misuraments are "almost" perfect!
    ...is there a "strangling" smiley I can insert here

    Thanks,
    Cruzer
