    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:

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

    Bump for the thread!...unfortunately I don't have any new progress pics, but I finally got some sintra! I'll use them to build the right guantlet and maybe a fresh left one (which has proven to be too delicate than I would like).

    Got the basic shape of the right gauntlet done! Now I just need to finish the cardboard and bondo it all up...

    Put polyurethane on the right gauntlet to seal the cardboard. Next up: bondo!

    As always advice and criticism is very much appreciated.

    This is exactly what I needed. Making some "mock" gauntlets for my kid, but when I have a little more practice then I will defintely be following this.

    Put some bondo on these and sanded them up. Still a long ways to go, but getting there!

    That may turn out to be a possibility if there's enough interest! Thanks for the encouragement.
