    3 Weeks Ago - Aug 6, 2015, 12:06 PM - Le1120's Boba Fett RotJ gauntlets scratch build #1

    So, after finishing my helmet (which I did a month ago) I decided to proceed building the gauntlets (templates from WOF) RotJ style, to be consistent with the rest of my proposed outfit. I decided to do the left gauntlet first. Here is where I am so far:

    p1100449-jpgp1100455-jpgp1100456-jpg The material is plastic styrene, normally used for modifying plastic models, but it worked well in this case despite being lightweight. My main concern is its long term durableness, but since I intend to cast this its not a real worry.

    Here with some sanded down primer on it to see where the ugly spots are...p1100469-jpgp1100472-jpgI build the underside part using cardboard.p1100476-jpg
    Here I am wearing it (does it seem to be the right size?)p1100471-jpg And here it is in its current state in all the glory of bondo. Hopefully I will get around to sanding it soon. p1100479-jpg

    Any advise and/or constructive criticism is very much appreciated.

    Finally got around to sanding the left gauntlet. I also got the sealant on the under half:
