    ...what Asok said.

    Plus the armor is just cut Sintra. It's not cut or shaped very well. I would avoid it. You'd be better off with the WOF templates and cutting your own.

    I would browse the forums more. If you are on a strict budget there is some great armor tutorials on making it out of a trashcan. Sounds funny, but it looks great!

    Re: What do you think about this armor

    erm guys - maybe I browse far too many diff sites. but have seen that set of armour as well as the seller concerned on MMCC (cyanide72 i beleive). His details are in a thread and he has been billed as "good". I believe this particular cut has already been molded to shape.
    Similiar offer by another ebayer called shubiwan or something like that - although some isues re: price and shippin.

    it is all made of 3mm sintra as per the advert.

    in a where to buy thread over there - bobamaker and cyanide72 are listed under the same heading as a seller of whole kits

    pls - dont flame me - merely passin on info I have gleaned from other forums.

    if you are doing this for a one time thing then go for it. if you are doing this to keep for a while and use multiple times or even display then pass and search the boards more before you make any decisions.

    Re: What do you think about this armor

    thanks for the help till now.... i'll say then that this is average armor^_^ Buba fett says that i try the "trash can" method, that means that is the better way to go, or i can go for this armor, maybe if a take good care of it?? i donno, to the naked eye seems good to me, but i really appreciate all your good comments of experience

    Like others said. Really search the boards and do a lot of studying of pictures. This armor has somewhat of the basic shape but has no depth. Don't just rush into getting armor. Worst mistake you can do. Good luck and if you have any more questions just ask. You can pm us too if you have questions also.

    Hey man, I'm not playing Mod here, but you might want to chill on spamming "Nice work". This isn't a showoff thread, and neither are some of the other threads you've responded to in the exact same way.

    that is very odd... he responded to 23 different threads with the words "nice Work" in just over 30 minutes...... sounds like spamming to me...but why? some people are just weird

    Re: What do you think about this armor

    ivansith seems to spam around just to get the rights back to go into cargo hold ...

    I guess The Dent should overthink some more rules than just the number of posts ...

    Soon all threads will be flooded with spam ... just for one goal ...

    but thats just my 2 cent ...

    :-)

    That looks like smallblock302 armor. Recaster and banned from many a board, including this one.

    Re: What do you think about this armor

    Maycol. I'd avoid ebay if poss and either A) do it yourself from sintra. You don't need a heat gun as I shaped mine using a hairdryer. Or B) buy from a member here. You get quality and a fair price too.
    Happy hunting
