Okay, this is my first attempt to pep your hand PDO, Zabana and I was pleased with the way it was going until... BOOM... I hit the circular center.
Edit: Looked at some other pictures... need to scale it down a bit.

I'll second that!! You could remove another 8% imo!
I sat down and made another "knuckles" last night and I think this came out very clean (for me). This is the first piece pep piece that I've done to completion, even though it's only a 1/3 of the hand.
I agree that this is a difficult piece, but now I'm thinking that if I can pep THIS piece, I can probably pep any piece which makes me rethink doing my suit in foam.
Gah... I'm going to resin some scrap/small pieces this weekend and see how i do with that and make a final decision. Anyway, here's the pic:
Edit: Gah, my heart stopped for a moment... my 1 year old just grabbed it. Fortunately, I got it from him in time.
Personally, I prefer mines much more tight else I felt like my hands were just disproportionnal to the rest and it removed some freedom for my fingers.
Oh and tip for the crowd, when you start building this hand, ALWAYS begin with the center ring and go from there. Those things build really nicely after a couple try and I found this trick to help me a lot and my 4th hand looked really nice compared to my 1st .. ischh
I'm likely going to cast this and if I do, the internal folds aren't going to be there. It's snug now, but not uncomfortable and with the paper supports gone after a cast it will be looser. Does that sound right?
Yes that sounds about right!
Check the pics that I posted of my hand in the 100% then the 95%, you'll see what I mean, basically, the diff happens in the knuckles hole and at the wrist. Knuckles, you can't do much, wrist is all good, there's a little play in there.
Great, happy to know it worked for you too!
Yep, you guys called it. Close, but no cigar. Currently at .774 scale. What do you think would be a good scale?
I know I built my first one at 100% and I have XL hands.
My second try at 95% is pretty much spot on.
It's good to know that with these hands, the ratio knuckles size (width) is funky with the hand length. What I mean is that if you get the hand to fit around the knuckles in terms of width, then, most likely you inner palm's size will be on the short side at the wrist. So it's all a question of balance between both.
Hey, recently I started building the hands. Great file! Definitely a challenge. I think this is just about the right size, what do you guys think?
What is the best way to scale your boot? I'm using Darkside501st version of your model with the expanded view an I'm finding it hard to scale it. I'm a size 9 shoe and I've been trying to work around that.
