I got a fever, and the only prescription is more weathering! i gotta have more weathering lol
looks really good!
looks really good!
Looking good! Especially the extra weathering in black. Very subtle. Very nice touch!Just doing another update, this time I've been working on my Gauntlets......specifically my Left Gauntlet. I've completed it.....let me know your thoughts. My goal is to have my Right Gauntlet completed by this weekend. I have to blame work and family life for the delay. But I'm in total "Boba Mode" this weekend.

Using my Airbrush I sprayed on some Tamiya X-11 (Silver) as my base, then liquid mask'd it all and then sprayed on some Vallejo "Game Color" paint called "Gory Red". I did zero mixing of this paint (except for some Vallejo Airbrush Flow Improver) as I felt the color looked great right out of the bottle.
The Metal Gauntlet Darts were supplied by QuestDesignCanada and were installed using my new favorite tool - Gorilla Hot Glue Sticks!
Finally got the Left Gauntlet done this weekend. I gotta say there's a lot more involved I thought than the Right Gauntlet. But here it is!

And for those that wonder about the LED on this Gauntlet. I hot glued the LED in place and then used a few drops of super glue for wire management and to mount the on/off switch. The 9V Duracell is mounted via velcro in the Flamethrower housing.

Let me know whatcha guys think! Next on the chopping block is the AprilStormProps EE-3 and using that Smooth-On "XTC-3D" product.
....more to come!
Are you aiming for 501st approval still? If yes, the ROTJ Hero gauntlets have a different damage pattern.
I hate to harp on this point, and I am fully aware you're not seeking 501st approval, hence rendering my next comment as inconsequential. However, I must clarify the photos in the CRL for both gauntlets reflect the correct Hero weathering as roger12RAMJET shared.
I love the wire management for the LED!! Details like that really impress me being the AR person I am. LOL
Iron I'm not criticizing just wanted to give my opinion. I think your pockets look too perfect.
I used soft foam like you would find in a camera case. I cut the pieces so the pockets didn't look full or empty but like there was stuff in them. I cut the edges of the foam with a bevel to avoid hard corners. The right thigh pocket actually does hold the speaker for my helmet mic as well as a small piece of foam.
I want to see the EE-3 work in progress.
I used foam in mine as well. I used 1” foam and folded them in half creating a pocket. I keep the battery pack for my chest lights in my left hip pocket, my phone in my right. For the thigh pockets, I put in some jingle bells to simulate the spurs sound even though I know you can’t hear any in ROTJ like you can in ESB.
