    So that "newly discovered part" is that on the right or the left gaunt?

    the etching i did last night (pictured above) is on her left gauntlet....

    the other piece - is on the backside of her right gauntlet - that sets in the cut out groove. As pictured by TheWookie. I will work on THAT piece AFTER i have the leather trim sculpting done for her right gauntlet.

    How long would the left arm gaunt with cuff from longest part of the top of the cuff to the wrist of the gaunt assembled, do you think? Of course, leather trim would be added, but because the cuff covers that part, it doesn't really add in to the total length.

    cool Ya know, if there is a screen capture of the time that they switched the cuff onto the other hand, you might get any other details on the end of that cuff. (if you haven't already) I think you have though. They are really awesome.

    DCB & ZamIAm:

    On the side I do video production and if you need, I have tools to transfer some good quality stills from the AOTC DVD to a picture format if you have any requests. I's be more than happy to post them online.

    I just thought about it, The problem is when zooming, you totally lose resolution. It sucks. My dvd player will zoom 2x but at 4x it's a mess. I am assuming it would do the same on the comp. If you wanna try, it's on that thread "Zam error on ep2"

    Those are just terrific DCB! Very, very cool! You're really out-doing yourself! On the other hand you're making it hard for the rest of us! You keep raising that bar!

    Please keep us updated on the progress as you add the leather and paint it!

    DCB,

    For us trying to make our own, would you be so kind as to post some nice Hi-Res pix of the project you're doing?

    I am a little confused on the materials you used. I see the styrene on the top gaunt half painted, then I see the second from the last pic up, where there is a really thick [ cup like thing at the wrist of the gauntlets. Is that not styrene anymore? Kinda got lost on your process there...
    measure gauntlets, cut styrene, etch out lettering and any other tidbits, putty in the lettering, putty? or sculpey? the additional pieces that stick out, glue pieces onto the styrene, primer, then?

    it's all styrene baby

    i cut and layered and cut and layered and cut and layered some more... then filled in the holes, gaps, imperfections with bondo® brand "glazing putty" and plumber's epoxy putty. sanded - more putty - more sanding... primed it - more putty - more priming.... ugh.

    the "cups" inside the gauntlets are for casting purposes.

    none of the pieces shown are going to be used as-is... they will ALL be cast in fiberglass or (except the cuff - which will be in vacuformed styrene then covered in leather). I also still need to make the trim that goes around the right cuff and the piece that goes in the "U" notch on that gaunt - but neither of these can be made until AFTER i have the gaunt cast in f-glass - so i know how thick they will be.
