    Opinions vary but I like fiberglass, the rounded egdes and toughness of the meterial is what I like most about it.

    I like fiberglass too(it's what I make it from ), but I must say that Seeker has done some amazing work with sintra. The thing is though, he made forms to mold it over.

    From everything we can tell, the real chest armor was vacuuformed. Whether it was ABS or styrene I am not sure.
