Looks very similar to the wood and PVC version from the BBC http://www.imperial-fleet.com/bbcforum/viewtopic.php?t=116 Weighing in at 3 pounds, breaks down to two parts to go in your armor tub, a lot more sturdy than vac'forming or foam, and only costs about $30 (that's including the costs of wood and PVC).



Looks like the server for the tutorial pictures is down for the moment, though. :(

Is that the vac kit from Cushman Paintball? From what I've been told, since it's vac formed a lot of detail is lost (which could be fixed by some added on styrene details); The plastic is .060 so maybe a wooden dowel run inside the full length and some expanding foam filler would be enough to make it sturdier...

If intricate detail is not a big deal to you, it might be the way to go, especially weightwise if you plan on trooping with it...
