My Gauntlets (Insane amount of pics)


My Gaunts (Insane amount of pics)

Well i was gonna wait till i was 100% done with the gauntlets but... that's no fun :lol: . besides i can bump the thread with progress pics.
Here's what I've done so far, please say everything and anything that comes to mind, good or bad. Any input is good input (y) .

All that's left on the left gaunt is to finish and attach the flamethrower, attach the rocket (via bolts), and paint and attach the dental expander. (y)

Sweet paint job then man, could have fooled me. Just invest in a cheapo one from eBay.

painted and attached the dental expander

cleaned up the resin nozzle a bit (in the process of priming and painting)

here are the coaxial connectors suggested by TK409 (site), i plan on mounting them to the resin nozzle after i paint the nozzle black to "hide" it and let the connectors be the focus/ only part shown.

thanks for all the feedback... :cheers
