I want to do something no fan as ever done before. Make a full set of Boba fett armor out of titanium with the visor onthe helmet as bullet proof glass. How do i bend the metal to my body size?
Bullet-proof glass is going to be really thick and heavy, and expensive.
you have a point....... do you have any suggestions on what i should use for the visor then?
I wanted it to look like mandalore's armor from kotor2
Glad to read you've rethought the "bullet proof" thing And you might want to go aluminum on the armor if you desire metal....
You can use a nice 1/8" thick welders sheild lens for the T-visor like most if not all use.
You'd stand a better chance at walking through hell with a snowball than getting that much titanium and shaping it into armor. The government has some influence on where it goes to and has even been complaining on all the marketed razors with titanium.....Boba Fett armor might not get their vote.
Alright. i have the aluminum already from before when i tried making a blaster and failed horribly,But i need some tips on making it into mandalore's armor. any ideas?
is this a good reference pic or should i keep looking?
Oh God, It's very small. Can you see some detail?
the closest your gonna get to real armor is using steel itll take a blow from a baseball bat the other one is the visor why not just use shatter proof glass i had a sheet of it in the back yard you could through bricks at it all day i even hit it with a sledge hammer it didnt smash eventually it did but it took about an hour and thats using the sledge hammer
Can I ask why you'd need a titanium, steel or what have you type of armour with a bullet proof visor?
It's not exactly gonna be light and easy to move in, especialy after a few hours trooping or at a con, impressive as it may be. There's also little that can be done in metal that can't be done in plastic or fiberglass. Now if you want a set that can be used to rob a bank... well that's different, although your getaway vehicle will need some serious grunt to cope with the weight of you in armour!
What i reccomend is to use a lightweight sheet metal of some sort. The best way to get that for very cheap, is to go to a local school that has a welding class. They're boundto let u go through their scrap yard for free.
