Great work. I'm about to start mine, but EVA first, while learning 3d print/fibre glass. Did you get these cast for you or do it yourself? I'm in UK and if the EVA looks bad may invest in A 3D printer for future builds. But great work. Do you have the Dimensions for the gauntlets?
 
nice! these took 8 plus weeks to get to you? i'm guessing you are in the states?
7 weeks from order to receiving the package. I added other items that may have delayed it a bit. Ordered 7th April, shipped 15th May.

I’m in the UK.

Really happy with these. Best gloves I’ve seen yet.

All armour and soft parts were purchased from multiple vendors. I’m painting it all myself.

The gauntlets from Man of War are resin and can be shaped when heated up. RS Propmasters gauntlets have a fibreglass upper on the left arm. The dimensions on mine for both are not as they were when received as I’ve modded them.

I’ve recently acquired the Bobamaker gauntlets and they are the largest of the 3. Waiting on some Fettpride gauntlets too. When I settle on a full setup all the rest will be up for sale in The Cargo Hold.

I tried making stuff myself early on. I was never satisfied with the foamex/sintra armour. I wish I’d never even attempted it as I wasted so much time. It’s in a box in the loft now.

I’ve gone through several different builds with different materials but i never felt like it was a waste of time. You learn new skills and practice techniques until your good at them and when you get the quality pieces, you can do a quality job. It’s all part of the process for me.

I’m waiting on a jumpsuit and vest from Clothears. They’re UK based. I bought this jumpsuit before knowing anything about accuracy etc. It was from a guy in Bolivia via Etsy, KriptonTop.

Bobamaker is in Europe. Formerly of the UK now residing in Portugal. No import fees and top quality products.

What I meant was I would’ve been finished had I not tried to do it all myself early on. If I had time to spare I’d probably stick with making more myself. I’m a full time engineer and a dad to a one year old. And I’m not the most patient person. I bit the bullet last year and decided to leave the crafting to the experienced people. I’m more of a painter anyways.

I wasn’t knocking you in any way. I think your doing a great job. I wish i had more time too. I just think all the trials and tribulations we go through only make us better. Had you not painted your helmet, jetpack, ect. once before, perhaps you wouldn’t be doing such a great job now.(y)
