    I dont think you will have any problems with the fuel line it works great and has a nice flex to it. Hope this helps.

    Aug 4, 2002, 3:41 AM - rocket color #27

    Sometimes the rocket on Jangos gauntlet all black, sometimes it is silver with black stripes (like Bobas). I assume one is a pre prod and the other isnt? Is this correct? I kinda like the way the all black ones look.

    Aug 14, 2002, 10:57 AM - Merged: Left Gaunt Help #28

    Hi gang, I need to know how I can make the left gaunt stay put. the problem is the flame thrower box is so heavy that when I wear it that it turns it's self downward, I'm always having to turn the thing back up right. Any help would be great. I cant make the thing any tighter with out cutting into my arm to keep it in place. Remeber Im a very large JangoBear.

    Try some velcro on your gloves and on the inside on the gauntlet.

    I put cut strips of foam padding in mine. I just slide them in at the top and the bottom after I put the gauntlet on and they seem to stay put. If you gauntlets clam-shell shut, you may want to just glue or velcro these pieces directly to the gauntlet.

    Ive put together a quick comparison, you can find it here:

    Careful, its 110k...

    http://www.amorphousmedia.net/client...ngocompare.jpg

    As you can see by the pics, the level of detail is staggeringly diffrent. The Jango armor has alot of detail, wheras the Boba is simplified. Now IANABFE, (I am not a Boba-Fett Expert) but Im pretty sure this is just a product of the casting products of the 70's versus todays technology. The Jango Armor also has diffrences such as extra hoses, and a missing piece near the end of the wrist rocket launcher.

    The pics are from Brak's Buddys amazing Online Ref. CD

    and assorted celeb. II pics I had on my PC.

    Well, I've made Boba's gauntlets out of sintra. I had to make my mistakes and figure out how to do it, but they turned out well. At least they are not too small/too large for my body, and they have a good amount of detail.

    Lisa, thanks for the reply. What did you use to glue all the "stuff" on to the gauntlet?
    Thanks,

    Superglue or 2-part epoxy, mostly. Go to www.azeem2000.com

    I'm making some Jango gauntlets out of sintra right now... I'll try to post some pics soon... its definately difficult to take 2-D pics and turn them into a 3-D object that you've never made before. THe right one is done, now working on the left one... the rocket thing is my biggest hold-up...anyone got any ideas? BTW, Superglue seems to work better for me than the 2 part epoxy...GL

    Well It seems that someone's Tip about using a clutch alignment tool was a great start for the rocket on the left guantlet...There are all different shapes and sizes depending on the vehicle... but all are a bit short or not quite the right shape. SO It must be a tractor clutch alignment tool or something, I'll look into it some more and leave another post. If anyone else has any info, I'd appreciate it. Like, what to use for the pointy thing on the end of the rocket =)

    Can anyone post a list of all of the attachments (i.e. buttons, switches, hose attachments) they used on there gauntlets and where they got them? I'm using tube lighting from Target as the hoses, but I have no idea where to begin with all of this extra stuff. I've decided to go with sintra for the gauntlets. It looks like it's going to be TOUGH to make them, but the molded plastic gauntlets I bought are WEAK and not very detailed. So, I'm going to try my own hand at it.

    I used black rubber fuel line from discount auto parts for the hoses. 2 small black "momentary pushbutton switches" from radio shack for the left gauntlet's flame thrower housing. Also a metal encased red led light from radio shack as well.

    Sep 24, 2002, 2:40 PM - Re: hose attachments #42

    It's probably not movie accurate, but i'm using
    generic male/female copper connectors from The Home Depot.
    I have made small cover plates out of sintra that have holes
    cut out to just the diameter or the copper connectors to poke
    thru. Then I just screw the hose couplings right to that to
    hold the hose to the sintra cover plate. You cannot see any
    of the copper connector this way and all you see is the steel
    coupling screw.

    Hope this helps.

    Guys, Im curious as to where to get ahold of that blue colored tubing on the gauntlets. Originally, I was going to just buy some sink tubing (the kind that you use for the sprayer) and try to color it. Im sure it's available some where already molded in that color. I saw some bright green colored hose at ace hardware this weekend. Any ideas?

    One more thing...While searching for the mysterious "Clutch alignment tool" I wondered, "what kind of cars would be around Leavesden at the time Boba was being designed?" SO I began to look for clutch tools for british and european vehicles. After searching for volvo I found this:

    http://www.ipdusa.com/productdetails...categoryID=305

    It has 10 "teeth" (though, Im pretty sure the one in the photo has 22) and is made of plastic. (hmm, I realize now that most clutch tools are plastic) Besides, take a look at the length. I think it's pretty damn close, and it's plastic making it lightweight, cut-able, etc. Looks pretty good huh? Perhaps there are some older model clutch tools out there?

    It's actually pretty common. Just look for brass continuos hinge. You have to cut it to length though.

    Kylash use a cutoff wheel on a dremel tool, or you can use a hacksaw. just cut at the last link nearest to the length you need. You can try and remove the center pin to make it easier, that's what I did.
