    If there is already a thread on this topic, please direct me as I have searched but haven't really found anything.

    From what I have been able to gather as a newbie, there are 2 types of material used to make the helmets and armor: fiberglass and ABS plastic/resin. Is one really better than the other, such as durability, price, and weight? Should I make my build out of one material entirely, or split it such as helmet from fiberglass and armor from the ABS plastic/resin? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Unfortunately this was supposed to be posted under the Boba Fett thread, but not sure on how to move it here. Guess the questions could be answered for either Jango or Boba.
