Hey guys, I'm looking to start making my own custom Mandalorian armor. I know it's not specifically a Boba Fett thread but this was the most active thread, and I am looking for general tips on constructing the armor.
I have experience with EVA foam armor (made a Halo ODST), and fiberglass resin (made a cyclops visor), and am wondering how viable metal armor would be (or if I should do one of the other methods). Has anyone tried besides the few that come in the search bar? I'm not sure whether to try thin aluminum or sheet metal, and which would be the most stable and easy to form/cut without heavy tools. Also, which would be the best way to attach the armor to a jumpsuit? Epoxying neodym magnets maybe? metal clips or screws?
I'm looking for a decent overview or information on this, and would really appreciate it. Thank you all!
