    Thanks mojo. I asked that several months ago and thought I may never get a response. Info appreciated! I have not worked on these for a month now, life keeps getting in the way!
    Southern Hunter: If you have long arms or big arms, you may need to extend the pattern a bit to get it to look better on your arm. Sometimes I think the proper ratio for your body is better than an actual replica. If it looks proportional on you to how it looked on Fett, then that is just as accurate, IMO.

    I second that request. I'd also love to see some pix of the underside (or inside) of the gauntlets.

    Hey Hey I got myself the smallest piano hinge I could find. But its not exactlly the same size so I am going to experiment by cutting them to size of the gauntlets and lets see if it works I guess. Lets hope Ill post pics of the success or failure. Wish me luck.

    I'm afraid I can't get a good and worthwhile shot of my hinge set up as I glued them in and then placed a strip of sintra over them and glued that down just to be on the safe side.
    Can anyone else who uses piano hinges help out with a piccy?
