I'm new to this board and to say that I am impressed would be an understatement. In my circle of friends and colleagues I'm considered the Fett Guru. I've been lurking around this board for about a week and a half and have done a lot of reading. I can say with certainty that my knowledge of Fett is miniscule compared to the vast amount of freely shared information here at this board. I'm also considered to be a stickler for detail and I'm very impressed and happy at how much perfectionism goes on in this board. For the longest time I thought I was the only one who looked for the "little details". This site truly does humble me.
Now on to my question. I've read and searched this site but have not been able to uncover the answer to my satisfaction. What I'm wanting to know is the difference between armor being Vac Formed and it being Fiberglass. What are the different qualities, pros and cons of each?
I've seen both FP's and BM's pics of armor and I'm amazed at how accurate every little detail is. The passion, effort and skill that has been put into each of their molds and armor is evident to all who view it. The main difference that I can tell from what I've read is that one is Vac Formed and the other is Fiberglass. Can anyone tell me how that translates into the costume (weight, resilience, thickness, ability to hold primer etc.). Thanks in advance. I hope this question is all right to ask, I do not mean to offend anyone.
