    Jan 11, 2014, 10:03 AM - Any Uk or Eu Based Armor fabricators ? #1

    Hi guys !
    I have made this thread in order to get a "sense" of my options regarding purchasing armor for my Fett build.
    As the thread title suggest i am looking for a UK or EU based maker of Kits.
    The main reason why i am looking for one near me is import taxes, sometimes our import taxes (Denmark) can go as high as 125-150% of the cost on clothing and props from the US.
    Needless to say i would like to avoid paying that much and since imports from EU countries and the UK is tax free, this is what i am looking for as a start.

    Please reply if you have any info.

    Boba maker moved to spain I think. Give RS propmasters a go. They are online and on FaceBook. Just e-mail them about what your looking for. They do way more than you see on there website

    Depends what you're looking for. MojoFett does a lot of machined metal found parts and I make a nice belt buckle and jet pack hooks

    Ok, no harm meant. He was in the UK last time I bought something from him. I had forgotten about the move. No need for exclamations.....lol

    Well if BM is in Spain that's still EU. I'd recommend Daz for sure but might be several months. I tried to reach RS for the last month and have gotten no response. Had been very punctual (within a day or two) back when I got my TK in October. Maybe they are relocating again?

    Don't forget clothears costumes (facebook and the web) if you need any soft parts. By far and away the best flightsuit and flakvest you can get.

    Yes, BM is in Potugal. I can highly recommend him. I ordered a full set of BM V3 armor and I received it last week (waiting time ca. 3 months). Its perfect stuff and I think BM armor is one of the most movie acurate ones you can get at the moment.

    Thanks for all the reply's guys.
    I tried to write RS Prop makers but had no reply yet, so i went ahead and bought some sheets of 3mm styrene and printed out WOF templates.
    To be honest i realized that i rather attempt to build the armor myself at first before i go off and order something, that way i can say that at-lest i tried right ?
