I wish I was that talented. lol I'm thinking about ripping the knuckles off of a pair of these
 and attaching them to my tarmacs (a little pricey though).

Yes the tarmac v.2 glove is discontinued so if you can find a pair grab it right away. Good luck finding black in any size now. I settled for grey and will be "dying" them.

No offense to batnemo and his great work but making knuckle guards might be the easiest sculpt on this suit. You don't need a lot of talent for that part of it.

It took me 7 or 8 tries to get the dang things right. Its because it goes higher at the top, but then the end is also fat, so getting the angle right is difficult :cussing

Now I feel even more lacking in talent. lol Well I'm thinking about picking up some clay and giving it a go. It's the casting part where I get lost (still have no idea how to really do it and that is after doing some research).

The molding is definitely a little more complex. But you can buy a kit. Smooth-on has a nice one that includes an instructional DVD.

Hmm...I suppose doing is cheaper than buying motorcycle armour/gloves and ripping them a part...something to think about anyway.
