Cobra Spring-Loaded Blade And Bomb Gauntlet - 25/02/2012 Bomb Computer Paint Up Started And Video Of

Update time!

I had a chance to work on these, so I thought that it is time to get one of them complete. I this case I decided to drum on with the bomb computer gauntlet. I have now added the inside panels including the count down timer. The used a vinyl of the bomb computer (my thanks to Quakevirus on the stella vinyl (y) ) and stuck that over a piece of 4 mm plexiglass. I also recieved my EL wire to for use as a backing light for the computer. I know the standard colour for this is red but I though, as its a custom pred and I am going with the rusty look, I figured that orange would look goooood! lol This was then glued to the black on the panel and then other details were then added. I also added 2 red LED's to the lid.

Once all the inside componenets were removed I then spray the whole gauntlet with a grey primer and then base coated it with an Aluminium gloss.

Thanks for looking guys and gals and let me know what you think.
 
Update time again lol

Had a little time to crack on with my blade gauntlet build. After tweeking with the blade system (which took forever) to get optimum release and lock back, I have now built the outside of the gauntlet, primed and base coated it. This is the build result....

I have only attached one blade for now as a reference. This will later be taken off so I can paint it and the gauntlet etc.

Thanks for looking and commenting guys and gals
 
Thanks for the great comments guys

Update on the bomb gauntlet.

I have added about 4 layers of the paint up and have now started to get the 'rusty' look. I still have to spray various dark and light green highlights go give it that metal look but this is what I have got so far.

I have also included a video of the count down timer. I have yet to add the details/ extras to the count downer timer facia - the stuff I was going to use has been misplaced lol

Great paint up; weathering is spot on!

Also I like the idea of the small box for the count down top, easy to add the electronics to it :)

That's pretty sick HH!! Watching the progression is awesome. Did you get the pred symbols from templates? It looks like some sort of photo film...
 
Can't believe I missed the progress on this build! Excellent work on the gauntlets Jason! Glad the display decal worked out for you bud. (y)
