:) looks good to me, though personally I'd beat em up a little with more weathering, but thats just me.

there are some pretty good ESB pics out there, contact guys like Jango_Fett_Jr or Jango's Kid or DL-44 blaster, theyre the masters when it comes to ESB Fett, so you might be able to get around 80% accurate weathering.

Looking good so far! I definitely suggest adding some black 'grime' to it, the originals seemed to have a fair bit of that. Also do a little black wash to give it an overall used look.

D'oh! Just noticed the flamthrower mount (the piece behind the flamethrower) is upside down! If you can unglue them then definitely fix that, and move it up a couple inches so you can do the red, blackm and white wires.

Yup, I'd just add the black grimey look and the colored wires (if you can move the flame thrower).

Looks great!

Yeah,
The flash did bleach it some, But it does nedd a black wash.
I was afraid to "over weather " them
The backplate (flamethrower)is glued on better than anything that I have ever glued.
I tried prying it off, but started tearing up the gauntlet.So I left it alone.
I can't put the wires on either. No room after the great glue job.
Thanx for the honesty guys.

Can you tell what kind of glue was used? Depending on what was used, you may have some options.

heres myn... what it was atleast... the elictrical wires (wich cant be foudn in the correct colours anymore, because those are teh colours of wiring used 20 years ago...atleast here in the netehrlands) dont have to be glued on or anything, all you need is a small dremmel drill the correct diameter of the wiring and just plunge them in the back of the flamethrower (after drillin small holes init), then make the same holes in the gaunt shell and braid them together behind those... worked for me...

LOL
I know HOW to do it, I just don't have room .
The flamethrower is glued way to far back to put any wires.

Here's some updated pics
after the black wash & adding switches.

Had to remove it using harshness!
S'gonna be a bugger to patch :(

I'd still probably have bought the gauntlets - It's just annoying me that S1P knew about the issue, but never mentioned it... Told me that there were some small cracks that just added to the weathered effect, but never said how they got there. :(

Rev,

my apologies.
I thought I had told you, or that you had been following this thread .
I did not intentionally try to deceive you.
If you are unsatisfied please feel free to let me know what I can do to make it right.
