I have all the parts cut out but no idea where to put them. From what you see in the photo above I am dead stuck on what goes where. Ive been stairing at these pieces for the last 2 hours trying to figure where they go. I have 2 days before the convention
I checked the original files and seems the gauntlets extend from one page to the next so they need to be taped together but **** that makes them freaking long!
I'm by no means an expert, halfway thru my second construction using these templates. My guess is as follows:
The piece on the far left is the bottom of the flamethrower. I assumed the other 3 big pieces were more to show you how the flamethrower looks assembled. The two little squares are the front of those two flamethrower pieces.
The big pieces are pretty self explanitory, bottom clamshell for the the gauntlet... you know it wraps around your arm under the parts you've assembled. The wider strips underneath, go between the big pieces, which, when overlapped and curved, line up with some parts cut out of the outer one to form the indentations. The "u" shaped piece is a guide for how much to curve those two (the narrow end of the inner shell should line up perpendicular to this). I'm actually at a loss for the two thin strips, but maybe they go between the inner/outer shell too, longways? I've cut mine out of sintra, so didn't need the inner shell, just put "for-sale" sign material behind the cut-out parts of the outer shell.
I am new to the Dented helmet, but I have downloaded WOF's Boba Fett helmet templates and now his Gauntlet templates. Great work on the templates, well worth all the long hours and effort you put in to make a quality product to share with fellow builders.
I am looking forward to begin construction on my own Fett costume.
These templates will need to have the "Page Scaling" set to "Fit to Printable Area" When I made these my AutoCAD and Acrobat didn't talk to well with one an other. I have plans to redo everything, but life hasn't given me the time lately.
