Arkham Asylum/City Gauntlets(second pass)


Hey guys,

I was recently asked to make a set of Arkham gauntlets for a brother bat here.

I started one of them this afternoon after my kids had been picked up for a weekend of fun at my mum's. emoticon I was more prepared this time after doing a set not so long ago and the first one went together really quickly.

I lost some pics in a screwed up PC-phone screw up but got some of the finished gauntlet prior to plasti-dip. I'll do that when they're both finished.

All that's needed on this one is the straps.

The fins are foam with a backing made from styrene plastic. Keeps them straight but keeps the weight down.

Hope you like it.

Looks fantastic! I wasn't even aware that you could build stuff like this out of much else then urethane or Latex and still keep the solid look.

Look forward to seeing more!

I'd seen others use foam before I tried it. To be honest, at that time I wasn't convinced. Until I tried it that is. LOL!

I'm converted now mate! It's a great material if you get the right foam.

Hope to have the other one done soon. ;)

10mm thick EVA foam, some styrene plastic and a thinner piece of foam. I found these rubber pads around 4mm in diameter too that I've used to simulate rivets.

Well I'm in the UK so not sure if my source would be of use? But I get it from a locally based seller. I think they manufacter it onsite too?

http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/ark_rubber_and_resin/

It's amazing stuff! Cuts very clean, takes to being heat formed really well and a Dremmel works wonders with it which is a surprise as I expected a dremmel to melt it but it doesn't. Very fine dust though so wear a mask. ;)
