I used 1/8" for all of my sintra Armor pieces.
The cod has 2 layers at the front area to build it up.
As well, I have vacuformed styrene gauntlets, not sintra.

I'm sure my armor is 1/8" as well, I have seen 1/4"
armor on ebay.

I used 1/8" Sintra for: Chest armor,shoulder bells,back armor,
cod piece, and knee armor. The 1/8" Sintra is easier to work with than 1/4" Sintra......invest in a Dremel tool and heat gun before anything else.
