I am considering building myself a set of Power Armour, but I don't know what sort of materials would be best used.
I have considered both Fibreglass and Vac-Formed Plastic for the pieces, but I don't think the vac-formed plastic would work too well for most parts (Especially the helmet).
Does anyone have any experience doing things like this? If you do could you give me some advice on how to make the formers, plugs, moulds, etc.
Please note, I do NOT want to know about Nimba Creations, or anywhere else proffessional that sells armour, I want to build it from basic materials myself.
I do have experience building large scale costumes, but not humanoid ones that recquire joints.
