    Toxic Gauntlet-01.jpg Toxic Gauntlet-03.jpg Toxic Gauntlet-04.jpg Toxic Gauntlet-10.jpg Toxic Gauntlet-11.jpg DerAndy has come up with a new design, based on his earlier designs.
    He calls it the gauntlet.

    This is my take on his design, which sits very nicely in the hand.

    I went with a classic boardcut approach.
    3 layers of acrylic glas as core and toxic green kirinite as scales.
    I recently snatched some fiberglas wires
    and used them in a first attempt on the aiming help for OTT.
    I am not really happy with the aiming device, but it works for now...

    Here are some pictures.
    Thanks for watching.

    What a beauty! Those fiberglass wires look quite cool in there. What do you not like about the aiming device?

    Thanks,
    First of all, the brightness is not nearly that, what i expected, and second, the "ears" they are in are too big and not identical in shape... it was a test...it works and that´s what matters.
    The next will be more intigrated into the overall shape... i hope =)
