Endor Trooper - WIP

My alloys were too clean so went for the engine bay.
I also sunk the gloves in bleach first to remove some of the more superficial yellow colour.

Dirty. This is the way.
Happiness is a warm A280. Or A300. Even a Glie-44 at a pinch.

Without a clear reference, the common belief was they were ball and strap type on the gloves. I think the prune face WIP had one of the clearest pics of such a possible glove. Some of the outdoor pics on Endor also suggest quite a noticeable yellow glove but not all shots do.
The para gloves have a buckle and no ball. The closest matched gloves I've seen are West Chester 84055 gloves but you can't get them. You can get cheap, very yellow, work gloves with a plastic ball and black strap plate and a suede panel across the palm so these don't tick all the boxes either.
You could put a silver ball on the end of the tape on the para gloves and it makes it closer to what we think is screen accurate. There's more of a range in the US of things that might do but we have to approximate and the standard itself makes no clear requirement. So no, the buckle doesn't "need" to come off for clearance but you might want to if you can replicate the silver lined eyelet tongue from the side of a glove as seems to be the case for prune face.

Nice. No printing to move or cover unless you've moved or covered it.
