    This is looking sharp! However, brevity of words doesn't serve us well. Please discuss your processes and your materials, etc! :wink:

    That is hot. The articulated hands are especially impressive.

    Have you used Styrene sheet as well? Just curious about a comparison between that and PVC for scratchbuilding.

    ...Wow, those leg and waist panels are SCRATCH BUILT? Holy crap. I thought they were just cut off a Gundam kit. That's really impressive.

    Styrene WIki

    PVC Wiki

    Styrene is typically used for model kits and hobbies while PVC is your plumbing pipe and then extruded PVC is what's used in many professional signs (Sintra being a brand name example).

    Many of the fan Star Wars costumes out there use Extruded PVC for the armor parts (Boba Fett, Stormtroopers, etc.). The nice thing about this substance is that you can drop a piece into boiling water, shape it/bend it, then run it under cold water and the molecules "re-freeze" in the shape you've made it.

    It looks like you're using sheet styrene but I can't be sure.
