Where do you get sintra

do you go to Lowes, menards,or home depot? I am using really thick plastic ( much thicker than sintra) but there are some peices that need more sculpting to then than simple heat re heat method. Sure the thicker stuff is more durable ( I play paint ball in my spare suit of Jango) but I want some parts for some other costumes I want to mold specifically stormtrooper shoulder bells.

Are you vacuforming the stormtrooper armor of are you using the "heat reheat" method?

I think most Trooper armor I've seen is usually ABS or styrene.

I am using the heat reheat for simpler peices but looking at the boiling hot water method since I only need 1 peice X 4 to complete my scout trooper armor. But I am also sculpting my own guants. I paid for 1 set of guants ( that never arrived)and am too broke to pay for a second. That's another story though.
