    right /left gauntlet, cuff & hand armor W.I.P...

    i started on the right gauntlet this weekend:

    it's all styrene right now - but i will cast it in fiberglass with an opening hinge. The leather ring on the top of the gaunt will be made separately.

    but i need a better pic of this area:

    I couldn't get that detail at MOM - as it was facing away from the glass. Anyone have a better pic¿

    Looks great, Dallas. In fact, it looks exactly like the one I did the first time. Look at the following picture:



    See how the top edge is at an angle and the bottom edge leaves the detail you are looking for at an angle? I ended up resculpting to get a more spial effect at the bottom. This is the best picture of the detail you are looking for that I could find.

    That's really nice! Did you make it out of aluminum? It doesn't look like painted sintra...

    Re: started right gauntlet - (now w/ left gauntlet)

    they aint gonna be the styrene that they are now. The originals are fiberglass - these will be fiberglass Remember - i'm trying to get as close to 100% accurate as possible

    Re: started right gauntlet - (now w/ left gauntlet)

    DCB, if you come up with any ideas on the upper left gauntlet cuff, please share. This one has had me stumped aside from sculpting it out of sclupy or something. =)

    Wow! I think it looks great, although I am not a big Zam fan so I don't know about the accuracy

    How much do you estimate this will cost us when it's all done and ready for production?

    I hope It's not $300...

    Re: my right , left gauntlet & cuff W.I.P...

    $299.99


    actually... IF i were to sell my test samples ( ) - I'd like to keep them reasonably priced. The price will be based on the cost of materials (fiberglass, leather, hinges, etc.) + the time it takes to make them. I may offer them in kit form, if it's that much more time consuming to put them together than it is just to cast them. (sometimes it's the casting that is the hard part and putting them together only takes a few minutes)

    Right now - I'm going to just continue to sculpt the rest of the pieces - then probably cast them all up after we get out of this frigid arctic temperature. I can't do ANYTHING outside when it's only 10-20 degrees out (I hate Minneapolis sometimes)...

    next step - the hand & thumb armor... then it's on to the helmet (eeesh)

    Gee Dallas those look good so far. at this rate I think we are all going to be hard pressed to get anything more accurate than those. Well looking forwater to seeing the finished product.

    Re: my right , left gauntlet & cuff W.I.P...

    Dallas, Is that circled,"newly discovered detail" The same as the one that you had circled earlier that you were trying to find? (the cigarette lighter adapter looking part)?

    Re: my right , left gauntlet & cuff W.I.P...

    nope... i got that pictured too though. I can't work on that yet until i get the leather trim section sculpted for the right gauntlet - and i can't sculpt THAT until after i have the right gauntlet cast up - so i know how thick it will be so many steps... ugh....

    edit - got my lefts and rights mixed up all better now
