Hello, I have been playing around on the internet always looking at Star Wars Prop's and just dreaming of the day I could own my own. With money as a issue I've just always thought of it as a dream. Well after my son and his friends was sword fighting and got hit in the head with a broken metal broom handle in the forehead I decided to find a safer way. So I made them all Boffer Swords. They asked me if I could make armor as well I like to make stuff I said sure I will see what I could do. I ended up going through alot of things and he asked if I could make star wars armor and we did a search on our favorite and the best character of Star Wars Boba Fett. Found this site and another great site on making them. It was like a dream come true. So we are starting our own Bounty Hunter Project. I have decided to scratch build everything I find much more satisfaction in making my own by hand as much as I can. I'm very creative and think I will make our own custom suit's. Seeing he's only 9 and I'm a fairly big guy ( lot bigger than Boba Fett ) I am not to worried about exact measurements. I have a few questions. What are some of the lingo and abbv's do you use I see alot of DP, etc...? Any tips for new people scratch building stuff, material's I will probably use is Sintra. I was thinking of making a vaccumform table and having a lady at work that loves to sculpt make me some mould's. I did find a few template's but is there a place that them more in a confined area for easier reference. Thanks BTW I love this site and looking at alot of the gifted and talented people here I can not wait to post my own and join the ranks of the Bounty Hunter.
