    Just beginning first ROTJ Fett set

    hey guys, im just starting work on getting stuff together for my first good set of ROTJ armor. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what i should make it out of thats a really cheap but strong material. ( 16 year old budget =[ ) I made a quick set out of the trashcan idea thats on here, but the paint didnt hold well to it. Lemme know what you think. Itll be greatly appreciated.

    If you're on a budget and you're after something lightwieght and cheap, then you can't go far wrong using sintra. As for it holding paint. A light sanding to key it up and a coat of plastic primer and said paint will stick to it like ****** to the proverbial blanket.
    No doubt others on here with a lot more experience than me will chime in too and will probably have some different ideas.

    Use QT big gulp cups as a basis to wrap your sintra around after you heat it for gauntlets. styrene glue is great for gluing parts together. good luck!
