Hey there LO people, I've been having some difficulty finding a few modeling supplies and I thought I would ask you guys what to ask for and where to get it.
I'm trying to find Paper board, Plastic Card and Foam Core of various thicknesses. I've not had too much luck on finding this stuff at either my local hobby stores or at the local home depot type places. I'm wondering if I'm just not looking in the right places or what. So I'm here to ask where you guys get your card, foam and plastic card? What exactly do you ask for? And what suppliers do you use?
Thanks in advance.
Edit: Ug I posted this in painting and I had meant to post in modeling. >.< sorry.

Evergreen is the biggest and best known sheet styrene company, and they should have product in your local hobby shops... It's certainly easy to find around here.
As for paper board and foamcore, look in artist's supply stores - they ought to carry tons of the stuff. Michael's is a great source, with Wal-mart and other department stores a close second.
Thanks for the reply guys. I think I was just asking for the wrong stuff but still having trouble finding the plastic card, the foam and card board I've found.
A couple of tips to how I found my source.
1st: Do you have a hobby store where you buy your 40k products from? Ask them, especially if they have tables with terrain in their store. It's likely SOMEONE makes or knows of a source locally.
2nd: Use the yellow pages and look up 'art supply store' (like mentioned above), this is NOT a hobby store, we're talking canvas', paintings, etc. These things are common for that type of store.
3rd: Given your area might suck that bad, ebay will be your friend as mentioned above.
4th: Failing all 3, sell you 40k items and quit! (Kidding!!!)
