Happy with my new gauntlets, my old ones were fine but you know what it's like.....these look better/are better and I was bored during lockdown so hit the button. Just need to add the pipes and dirty them up this weekend.
Hi bud, as far as I know (which is limited lol) they are standard ROTJ gauntlets, but happy if someone can confirm this. As for colours etc, I used a spray can for the burgandy and the RAL was 3004. The other colours on the smaller items were just guessed and mixed from paints me and my mate had at home.
I never would have thought to use a felt tip maker to push through the hose. Brilliant idea!!
I had issues getting my hoses to take the coffee stain. I tried leather stain too which didn't work. I finally sprayed paint down the pipe then after it mostly dried pushed a small piece of paper towel wetted in solvent through the hose. It removed just enough of the paint to look weathered.
Good work! If you are going for 501st approval I would work on the damage to match the CRL though.
