    My orignal plan was to make an ROTS Vader or an ANH. I wanted to do something kind of inbetween the movie. So, Ive decided that its all going to depend on how my armor comes out. If it sucks, them Im going with ANH that way I can cover it up with my Robe lol.

    I once made chest armor out of plexiglass. Pretty tough undertaking. I used latex coulk for the seams beacuse you could paint over it. Your on th eright track for the shoulder bells, I used a baseball helmet.

    I wish I had the time to things from scratch...... maybe someday when the kids are all grown up and moved out... :D

    Seriously though, keep us posted on the progress. Will be interesting to see how it turns out.

    I have done this before, it's a pain to do.

    But the end results can be very rewarding.
