    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!!)

    thanks for the measurements. My MOW are bigger at the rear opening, and pretty close either way at the wrist.

    Jeebers Cruz, those are amazing! Seeing the whole build up from Pollock to Monet is awesome!! Man im glad im 5'10'' I wish i could critique them somehow...maybe if i had a hands on pair They look great and i would have to say that you are no longer a noob at prop building. I can see it now................www.cruzerconspiracy.com aww the possibilities are endless. You could even have an automatic measurement converter!!!! Keep up the fantasmic work sir!

    So do those dimensions work for most people in the 5'6"-5'10" range?
    Only reason I ask is because it's still not too late to make changes, and I'll need to make any modifications before the molding can start...which I hope is very soon.
    Thanks

    I would bet the MOW's would be better for your height.

    ...I would say they are more for people who are closer to screen accurate height.

    Also, I actually received Dark-Side's hinge yesterday, which he cut to what he calculated to be screen size lengths before sending them out...and they fit the gauntlets perfectly! So we may have gotten the gauntlets closer to screen size length than I had thought!

    I too would recommend MOWs for people 6' and above because of their length, or also Ruffkins and modifying them to be Jangos.
    My sculpts may work...but it would be best to see their scale on a 6' person before saying so.

    P.S. You better be careful Cruzer, there has been a new recall on spinach from Ca.
    I only eat it out of the can after I've ripped the can open with my bare hands!

    Just to let everyone know, the side indicated by the green arrows in the pic below is really straight, but the camara angle made it look curved. I didn't want anyone to be concerned about that.

    Thanks

    Im going to pick up one of those fabric/tailoring tape measures so that i can measure my arm then you can make them just for me!!! One question which might have been answered...are you going to use the locking hinges instead of velcro or magnets?

    They are constructed to use only the hinge and pin closing system. They're not being made with any type of additional lip for a velcro closing system.

    I could add a lip for a velcro closure if that's what members wanted. It would just have to be trimmed off for a "hinge & pin" closure. I'll keep it like it is unless people voice they want a lip for velcro.

    Made an adjustment to the curve under the missile for more accuracy, thanks to Dark-Side's keen eye!
