Thanks it is a work in progress trying to finish up all the little things. The next big item will be doing the jetpack next.

I would love to see the inside of your Gauntlets and how you are attaching them maybe some pictures or a quick video that would be great
Yah I can do that. I am using the Velcro method. And I still might install a Velcro strap on the top to the wrist so it does't roll over.

Ok so weathered my Woodman cape a bit. Made some scissor cuts along the bottom edge and holes with a razor knive. Washed 3 times to allow it to fray. Hang dry so it won’t shrink. Followed another members post can’t remember who.

Sweet thanks
Here is the right gauntlet first then the left. So I epoxied and Chicago screws on the top half to hold the straps. I need to reinforce the hole in the strap because it will pull through.
You can see that I used heavy duty Velcro to hold both together. Installed the hook and loop on opposite sides. I also had to glue in some styrene strips to lengthen the areas were the Velcro attaches.

1st 4 pics are the right gauntlet. 2nd 5 are the left gauntlet

I installed brass grommets on both straps. Now they won’t pull through.

Got my hollow stalk installed from MachineCraftReplicas and JC27 range finder lights. And HenrysHelmetfans installed. No more foggy visor’s. Just need to get a servo for the stalk. Just Velcro and gaffers tape. Might adjust the fans when I get a servo.

Finally prep and assembly is done ready for some primer and paint. I fitted up the Jetpack hooks. Had to trim the bottom hooks to fit the MoW pack. Leveled out the bottom with a little bondo. Installed the bottom greeblies. Installed some magnets for the back cover plate.
