    Thanks Fettpride.
    If they turn out half as good as your cold cast beauties did, I'll be happy! The finish on those is amazing!

    Thanks guys for the compliments.
    All the pieces are scheduled to be molded this Sunday by the Sci-Fire crew, so the molds will be top-notch. I need to place an order with Dark-Side for some aluminum darts so I can show you guys a completely assembled pair for that first pull. And I'm checking on cold cast materials as we speak.

    Will the hinges be available to those with other gauntlets?

    Dark-Side has access to the hinges, so you'll want to contact him.

    Hey guys. The molds are still in the process of being made. I believe all of the molds for the smaller pieces are done, which leaves just the shells to be completed. Getting into the shop to continue molding the gauntlets is what has postponed finishing the project. I guess they've been pretty busy with movie production stuff. I'll be sure to give an updated when the first pair is complete.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer

    hey cruzer,

    i would be interested in the little flare you mentioned for velcro...not to actually use for velcro but to add a small extra bit to the circumference of the inside, my forearms are about 13" and unfortunatley im working out for sparta..LOL so i want to make sure I can still put the things on after I get leonidas huge...

    Only one set of molds is being made for these gauntlets, so they will not have the velcro lip due to the majority preference. So it looks like you'll have to choose between Sparta or Jango style forearms. No seriously though, I'd check into a pair of Ruffkin's as his are a very good option for those with large forearms.

    Actually, I was just thinking that the shells have been built up a tad for molding in order to create a clean trim line. So you may be able to use that excess area to expand the gauntlets a tad in height and width. So they may just work for forearms that are a tad higher in diameter. Only dilemma is those areas would have to be filled in to be flush with the rest of the sides, and if cold casted that would be challenging but not impossible. However, I think it could be made to work.

    ya..i would probably go without the cold casting...as nice as it is..be easier to blend it and such if it was a bondo/pant job to accomodate my forearms...i think you planned to offer them as non cold casted as well right?

    i was curious cruzer...

    are the missle, darts, ect part of the kit and im assuming if so they are resin...if not no big deal as i have aquired all machined aluminum stuff except the darks on the front of the gauntlet(bigger ones..not the 4 little ones) if they are part of the overall kit would you sell the gauntlets without the resin pieces i dont need for an alternate price...again just curious as i have some stuff for them waiting..LOL
