    I may go that route too. I've never worked with sintra before though. I know you heat it up and can mold it. Do you think it would mold well over the rounded corners, or should I piece it together somehow? Then I could rub n buff with the silver leaf and it would have a cool finish like you suggested.

    Re: Building a HIC prop?

    Hey all. I've cut my Sintra and trimmed Han down to size and I'm getting ready to build him tomorrow. To make it easier to cut the slots for the side panels and the shapes on the top and bottom I made some templates in Adobe Illustrator. I put EPS files and PDF files in a zip file so everyone should be able to use them. The shapes are to size and I marked the centers with a dot. I also drew lines to show where the top and bottom edges of the sides are. I'll probably cut mine out and make a stencil to trace on the side of the Sintra. You'll have to print them on 11x17 paper or larger, but the smaller shapes you could print on letter size. I'll attach the files and hopefully you guys can use them on your HICs. Enjoy!

    Bobamaker does some incredible work. I've talked to him a few times to ask him some questions about his HIC. I got a lot of useful info from his step by step HIC page. Using that, and the info and help I've got from everyone here and at the HIC Builders group I am on the right path to finishing up my HIC.
