no hot glue for sintra try gorilla or super or rivet them together
I used Loctite Epoxy for plastic when I made my Spartan helmet (My Avatar). Gorilla didn't hold for me. I also filled seems with epoxy putty which is sandable, and used a dremel to clean it up. Don't underestimate the powers of caulk, either, for unsightly seams, LOL. I frickin' HATE hot glue and refuse to use it. If you incorporate foamies into it, use Contact Cement and fill any seams with caulk. Good luck and can't wait to see your build thread!

you might could use chicago screws for a few places if you decide to rivit. some places (leather shops) have a veriaty of interesting looking conchos that might add a little to your armor
