    I used 1/8" for all of my sintra Armor pieces.
    The cod has 2 layers at the front area to build it up.
    As well, I have vacuformed styrene gauntlets, not sintra.

    I'm sure my armor is 1/8" as well, I have seen 1/4"
    armor on ebay.

    I used 1/8" Sintra for: Chest armor,shoulder bells,back armor,
    cod piece, and knee armor. The 1/8" Sintra is easier to work with than 1/4" Sintra......invest in a Dremel tool and heat gun before anything else.

    I used 1/8" for all my armor. But I doubled it to give some thickness. http://photos.yahoo.com/wanabeafett

    I got 1/4" thick.

    Means you can hack it about to get the battle damage.

    I'm really pleased with it.
