    Awesome find = Happy Day!!

    Its finally time to start the armor on my budget ROTJ Fett. And so far the sheet of sintra was going to be the most expensive piece, about $50 bucks for a 4 x 8 sheet. I was calling around trying to get the best price and i found out there was a sign supply company 5 miles from my home. Called them up and asked if they sold scrap or damaged pieces for a discount, the guy said no but they sometimes have cover pieces that they ship on top of the good pieces of sintra. He said they are usually pretty damaged but i could take a look at them if interested. I went there this morning and looked at the "damaged" sheet. It had some very very minor scratches and some dirt on it but otherwise perfect. I asked how much and he said i could have it for free! So my budget boba is going to be even more budget than originally planned, which is ok with me! I am going to start cutting the pieces using WOF's templates and ill post pics as soon as i get it going!

    Great idea... you've inspired me to email the sign shop down the street from me. I'll keep you posted.

    Very Cool, Wish that was the case here in NZ, The sign companies here use corrugated plastic board ( cheap sods ). However there is a plastic company that I could try that on... Thanks for sharing.

    I love it when you get finds like that, it can really make your day.
