    Jul 16, 2009, 4:07 AM - Sintra #1

    I am new to TDH and I am trying to make my own Boba Fett armor. I have been looking for a website in europe to buy sintra from. I have tried using sintras proper name of 'high-density polyvinyl chloride sheet' but havn't been able to find it in Europe so far. I could use some help if any one knows of a European company that can suppy sintra. btw I live in a town called Gibraltar a british colony at Spains most southerly peninsula. I might be asking much but I need to know that if there is a company in Europe that can supply sintra that it can also deliver cross country. thanks if you can help me.

    Not sure if you still need this info, but FOREX sheets are what you looking for. These come in different sized and colors.

    also known as foam pvc in UK mate

    try the yellow pages locally and look for shops that make signs , - thats what I did in UK.

    Most of these shops will stock a variety of plastic eg acrylic, ABS, HIPS or foam PVC. btw HIPS works well too for making armour and general prop making

    this a local store I went too - http://www.spp.uk.com/plastic_sheet.htm

    on Gibraltar - some place like this should be able to supply you several sheets of either HIPS or sintra (ie foam pvc) http://www.gibraltarplastic.com/signage.htm

    oh yes - and welcome!
