    Need Help Please

    Hi, I have been trying to find decent suppliers of abs or similar materials to build my armour for a Jango and Boba costume. I was told I can heat abs with a heat gun and mould it. I also have some parts of the armour already (a guy sc*ewed me over on ebay) and it is in some bad shape. I can correct the mistakes if I can get tome abs to edit the messed up armour.

    If anyone can offer any advice or help, I would be most grateful. Also if someone could direct me to where I can get a decent Jango and Boba Lid from as the one I got (Conned) from ebay is a kids lid and not a proper one.

    Regards,
    Rob

    Sorry bud wish I could help. All mine is FG. I do know that a pipe insulating supply house carries big sheets of it. Not sure if it the right thinkness but they will have it.
    There's a few guys selling lids in the cargo hold. Asok, fett pride , ect.

    Stick to seller here for Boba parts and you will be happier with your buys.

    Good luck on your build

    For the helmet I would highly recommend Asok.

    For the leg armor I would suggest getting some PVC pipe, if you get the 6 inch PVC pipe you can cut out the template and then with minor shaping you can make thigh armor. The shin might work better using 4 inch PVC. The PVC pipe that works really well is the white pipe like would be used for household plumbing, basically a sewer pipe.

    I see that you are in the UK, so things might be different there, but here in the US I would tell you to go by a construction site and ask if you could pick some of the scraps out of the trash bin. The 4 and 6 inch pipes are fairly popular sizes to be used in commercial building.

    The PVC can be heated and shaped easily with a heat gun. Just do it in a well ventilated area because it does off gas some when heated.

    There are several Jangos here on the boards that have armor the way I am describing. It is cheap, not to difficult to work with, and nearly indestructable.

    just to show you how they can look.....take a look at the pics marked belt in this old for sale thread

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f31/o...go-sale-38924/

    Those are PVC thighs....there is another thread somewhere that he describes making it but I didn't see it in my quick search.
