Shadow trooper armor

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

I hope this is the right place for the question, if not please move it.

I already build 2 ANH stunt troopers, one was RS, the other one TM, both 1,5mm ABS and both went quite well. Now we think of building a shadow trooper armor. TM offers a shiny 2mm acrylic capped armor or 1,5mm ABS glossy. Does anyone know if there is a big difference in look betwenn those two? I belive 2mm is a bit harder to build than the 1,5mm. Anyone  got experience with these two kinds of armor? Or maybe pictures to compare? Thanks for your help!

1.5 mm is more flexible (because it is thinner),  while 2 mm would be slightly stronger.

There would be that much of a difference. 2 mm would be slightly softer on sharp details because it is thicker.

 

Just found this that could help:

Well I’d prefer building the 1,5mm because I already know how to handle it. But I‘m a bit worried about the looks. I dont know if the 1,5mm is „glossy“ enough for the shadow trooper.
