Speaking of fingers, here's 1 of the joints I came up with. I had a buddy at work draw this for me in Solidworks so I could print it.








These take about 7 hours to print,Ugh! Only 27 more to go. But in the meantime, I can keep detailing the gloves.
Thanx for watching!

Got some more done on the hose mounts for the top of the glove



Scroll work burned in with a soldering iron and then mounted to the glove

I managed to mount 3 of the hoses before goin in the house for the night



I'm trying to cover my seams as much as I can as I hate filling them . If you place your details strategically you have less to fill. Eventually you'll have to fill some, but I try to make them as small as possible. (wishful thinking LOL). Still working on the fingers also. Thanx for watching!

Got the last hose mounted.


Working on catching up the other glove this far. I have to burn the scroll work on the other cathedrals and glue them home. Then connect the hoses. Then it's fingers and more detailing. Stay tuned for more. Thanx for watching!

That's looking Awesome! Those skulls are working perfectly. Where did you source your tubing? Is that really thick Wire Loom, or did you score some cheap vacuum cleaner hose?

I scored the hose at Lowes, its wash machine drain hose. They had it in 6ft and 8ft lengths. $15 for the 8 footer. I bought 2 other pieces to replace the hoses on the side of the waist for the blood vials a few pics back. I'll wind up using that hose for everything on the suit I think. I kinda don't like the split loom for the bigger stuff, and its light weight. I was worried about the weight of the rubber hose and the fittings and the loom breaking off from the 3D printed threads that they were screwed into. Stay tuned for more and Thanx for watching, it keeps me going knowing that people are interested in my build!!

I found some plastic fittings at Lowe's that are for garden hose thread and they have a barb on the end. These fit the plastic drain hose perfectly, they will stay on without having to glue them.









That way, I can unhook the lightning claws and plug in the Apothecary's gloves using the same hose from the back of his arms. I have the same fittings throughout all of his gear. (Tried to think ahead a little).

Here's some overall at the moment




Almost 40",LOL  Thanx for watching!

Here's a squirrel moment. This was 1 of the shoulder shields I did early on in the build.


It fits in the cut out on the pauldrons. I 3d printed a small plate and glued a small steel piece in the side of the cut out. I was hoping to use magnets to hold the shield on, but they weren't strong enough. I ended up making a bolt with a wing it to screw it on. Here it is painted




The hole is for the bolt. I have about 5 more shields that fit both sides, but not painted. I'll post more pics as they get painted.

Absolutely gorgeous.
Thanx for the compliment. It means a lot coming from someone such as yourself. Your builds have inspired more people than you know!
If there's any suggestions you have, by all means let 'em rip.

Got the gloves caught up to each other



There's still some small trim items I want to put on yet. But the fingers are still a big ticket item that's keeping a couple things stalled. How I treat the palm area is 1,2 is how much of the wood I can trim away,and 3, have to figure out how the thumb mounts. The rest of the wood will get painted black so it blends in with the fingers (I hope). The main thing is to get the fingers made. Thanx for watching!
