    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:

    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!

    As always advice and criticism is much appreciated.

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