    Mar 22, 2003, 4:32 PM - Any reccomendations for materials #1

    Anyone have any reccomendations for materials to make armor out of? I'm thinking aluminum (I want real metal for authenticity) but I don't know what thickness. I'm thinking a Mereel color scheme (from the comic, not early Boba), but with slight alterrations. i want the metal thick enough to not be flimsy, but bendable (I wanna be able to form it without many tools). Any help would be appreciated.

    There's a link in here to a series of pages I've made with a bit of how-to info. The only tools you REALLY need are a stump, a hammer, and a pair of aviation snips.
