Michael, you can email me directly at: [email protected] or you can call me at (510) 357-3755 . I'm always available to talk plastics with the MyLargeScale Community members.

The thickness of the material to use depends on the final size of the finished model. Also, when "T" and "I-Beam" type reinfocements are glued to the plastic, they significantly increase the rigidity of the sheet material. Most outdoor structures, like the ones that Richard and Bruce build, use 1/4" thick clear acrylic. Most cars are made using 1/16" and 1/8" thick material. I've had people use the 1/4" thickness for the frames thought...

Joe, those black blocks I sent you in your last shipment were the foamed PVC material.
