Does anyone know where to get the foam...stuff you need to build foamie models? I thought it might be nice to build a radio-controlled model, but I'm thinking 110lb cardstock might not be strong enough. What do you use/think it would be a good idea to use?
Thanks.

Thanks alot. :D If the B-25 or B-26 come out soon, I think they would be good. Otherwise, I'll use something else.

P.S.-What thickness do you recomend?

depends on what yer doing and where its used. for flat plate type wings i use 6mm or 2 pieces of 3 glued togather. for the skin of the fuse, or on built up wings, i use 3mm as sheeting, with 6mm formers. then some thin plywood for the firewall. i came up with an awsome way to make a sturdy firewall on the neiuport, ill post a pic when i get one.

the wing on the cessna i made is 2 pieces of 3mm bent over a balsa beam that serves as the wing spar. flat on the bottom, then the top piece bends around the spar to create an airfoil.

the wing on the neiuport is 2 pieces of 3mm, mega ca glued togahter with a .185 carbon fiber rod sandwitched inbetween serving as the spar. and its flat city. no airfoil.
