Check out "wandy-foam" on eBay (just google it to find a link), I think Stealth recommended them in another thread.

As for supporting local businesses, I was quoted $127 aud for a 2m x 1m sheet of 6mm Eva... I just about spat out my coffee...

I paid $20 for four sheets of 12mm Eva that was 60cm x 60cm... but it's too thick for some sections hence I went searching for thinner... I was utterly gobsmacked at the quote.
a new Zealand company quoted $27 aud for 2.3m x 1.3m but with postage, wandy foam was cheaper

Was gonna post some photos of the biceps and forearms I done over the last while........Instead im posting a warning to everyon3 hopefully no ond is as stupid as me, do not i mean DO NOT leave any finished foam parts on a radiator over the weekend while you go out punishing your liver. I learned the hard way, I arrived home to find both forearms and biceps unglued warped mess's. This has dampened my evening.

RADIATORS BAD
FRIDGE GOOD............OR A SAFE DISTANCE FROM THE RADIATOR.

Christ i hope I dont end up on the "enough with the stupid iron man builds allready thread" I just dont think I could handle the pressure..... :darnkids

Thanks very much for the encouragement!!

I was wondering if anyone got the Darko nod!!

So stuck on Led Zeppelin IV tonight and got stuck in with a few bottles of bulmers. Both arms done fully, redone the bells in the parts I wasn't happy with, they still need some work ,other than the plating on the biceps im pretty happy them.

And a thumbs up to everyone on the RPF for the hours you guys put in and the help im receiving off everyone!! Thanks guys

Please Please Please give this thing a good clear coat and call it a day. It would be a shame to cover such beauty with red and gold :)
