    Don't cut out the rectangle off. Just trim the sides at an angle like this and glue to the shoe.

    Here is a quick video of my assemble Pre-Vizsla season 4-5 gauntlet.
    The magnets are "Rare Earth 1/4 x 1/4 cylinders."

    The very end of the video was cut off and I was about to say that you can add 2 small strips of velcro on each end near your wrist and elbow to help keep the open end closed once it is on your arm if needed.

    PS Remember that Bo-Katan's Top detailed gauntlet parts are on the opposite side as Pre-Vizsla's. And Bo-Katans top covers need to have the 2 small side circles filled in and made smooth.

    Thanks so much for the tips Kevin! Every little bit helps and although I'm still buried in my helmet project, the help you're giving Ash is going to help me a bunch later.

    one day I will stop asking all these questions.

    the lights on the gauntlets. no matter how many times i watch her episodes i can't quite place which lights actually 'light up' whether they flash or stay lit etc. and which ones are just there as a pretty tile.

    help anyone?

    Just got home from work and my postman puts a box on my doorstep.
    I was shaking that much opening it...


    Thank you very much Cruzer! Your craftsmanship really shows... It's a masterpiece!

    All my armour paintwork is DONE! Now I got to work out the best way to do all the webbing. Suggestions people?

    Hey Kevin, the video is down. Did you delete it? Any chance you could put it back up for a few days?
    THanks!

    To attach my armour to my suit I'm using a combination of magnets and Velcro. I'll let you know how i go.

    The reason I didn't go with press studs as it will eventually snag the fabric of the suit. I making the magnets removable also. I'll upload pics when I've finished frantically sewing

    My concern with using a piano hinge on this is the armour is abs plastic. Not solid resin or fiberglass like what most Fett gauntlets are. Also, Ash does have rather small forearms so a slide one would be better suited.

    As far as padding goes, I had I similar problem padding the forearms on my tk with padding coming out but I fixed this by using thinner PVC pipe insulator cut lengthways wrapped around and using a platiprime glue which is designed specificly for rubber and foam.
    If you want ABS hinges and a locking mechanism this is something I have been making for a while for other vacformed gauntlets. Basically its just like a regular hinge just thicker and will simply glue on with ABS cement, with the plus that they are adjustable.

    Let me know if you want some ash I can just post them to you. Standard piano hinges are a pain in the backside.

    Interesting, I just thought they all stayed on the whole time, just under different lighting you would notice more. How are you doing this btw? have you got appropriate colour buttons? because trans clear, red and white lego 1x2 tile are just about the right size and easy to source, and will stick to your abs gaunts because lego is abs.
