    Rotf leader prime hands update thread!! Now with gun!

    Well, it appears PAYTON34 is the only one that will have a set of these hands.

    After weeks of trying, spending more money than the pre-order payments were, and messing up all kinds of stuff, I decided not to send anymore out. To give you an idea, the set of hands that Payton34 received on his Prime was the only decent pair out of about five tries. By that I mean we tried to make well over 75, but only about percentage of those had both sides that would hold the fingers. The fingers were a whole mess on there own.

    I used about a gallon of material between the guns, hands, and fingers. Still so few were of good quality. I can see why so many have avoided the reproduction of these size hands.


    I really appreciate all of you guys who trusted me enough to invest in these and give me a chance to make something really cool that could be a great addition to your collection.

    As you can tell, I have SPENT A LOT OF MONEY AND TIME TRYING!! Heck, I sent the $90.00 worth of wrong urethane plastic to DARKOV pretty much for just the price of shipping:( 

    All of you guys that have pm'd me with the paypal info, thank you very much and I have already sent the refunds.

    I would rather loose money than to send out a product that I am not 100% satisfied with. Thanks for understanding.




    ATTENTION THOSE WHO HAVE PAID. ********PLEASE PM ME!!!!!!!***AGAIN, PLEASE DO NOT PM FOR INQUIRES ABOUT THE HANDS AND GUNS AT THIS TIME. ONLY IF YOU HAVE PRE-PAID.

    PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR PAYPAL ADDRESS AND INVOICE # WITH THE PM.!!!!

    THANK YOU GUYS VERY MUCH!!

    Here is a pair painted with some chrome!!

    I WILL CLEAN OUT THE FINGER HOLES AND THUMB HOLES, PLUS REMOVE THE MAJORITY OF THE PLASTIC, BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO DO SOME TRIMMING ON YOUR PAIR OF HANDS ON THE INSIDE TO FIT AND JUST TO CLEAN IT UP A LITTLE. NOTHING THAT A LITTL EXACTO CAN'T FIX.

    Wait...honey colored? I was under the impression that they would be casted or painted silver.

    I don't understand what you mean by "flexible fingers" - do you mean the fingers themselves are made out of rubber? Will they have wires in them to hold their position? Why can't the material be colored before casting?

    Are we stuck with rubber fingers that are the wrong color? As far as I know rubber doesn't hold paint very well.

    It is a urethane based material. If you have ever put a gundam model together, the fingers are a softer type plastic than the palms. he reason is because the fingers snap together, so with out a little flex, they would snap.

    About the color. I thought wrong. That is my bad. I never did say they would be silver. I did mention black or white, but after testing, the base color is going to be honey. That is the best I could do.

    The material is made for painting. So no problem there!!

    That gun looks pretty neat. With a few extra modifications and tidying up it should look awesome.

    Oh, I get it now. That sounds good.

    Any chance that you can paint them? I'd rather not mess with painting if possible.

    I'm curious also, if I can't find the proper, uhm, materials for mý custom, I may need to invest in a set of your hands.
