I found this today and though some of you hardcore modders would be interested...
High Impact Styrene Sheet - US Plastic Corporation
40"x72" sheet of .020 thickness Plasticard for only $6.10 USD
That's about 20 quare feet!
They also have thicker sheets for a little more money... but compared to what hobby stores typically charge, this is a DEAL.
For a little more than $6 you could potentially build a Titan.
Link por favor
doh, my bad didn't scroll over it
I typed "0.02 inches into centremetres" and it came back with 0.0508 which is almost too thin to make anything out of as far as I'm aware, you need at least .5 to get pieces to stand up straight and have some strength.
I guess for that price though you could double up sheets but that would require a lot of extra work.
Well it doesn't say that its .020 inches specifically... but all other measurements in the description are US standard and not metric... and GF9 sells packs of plasticard with the following description:
Nine 5 ¼” X 9 ¼” sheets
(For about $12 btw)
- THREE - .010” Thickness Sheets: Perfect for seals, parchment, and fine detailing.
- THREE - .015” Thickness Sheets: Great for banners, flags, and miniatures details
- TWO - .030” Thickness Sheets: Ideal for detailing vehicle models and terrain.
- ONE - .060” Thickness Sheet: Awesome for armor plates, decking, and walls.
I can only assume that this is .020"
The site stabby mentioned at the top has several thicknesses which get more expensive as the thicknesses increase.
.02 inches = 0.51 millimeters
.03 inches = 0.76 millimeters
.04 inches = 1.02millimeters
.06 inches = 1.52 millimeters
.08 inches = 2.03 millimeters
.100 inches = 2.54 millimeters
they all comes in sheets of 20 square feet. 3.33ft * 6ft
Gf9 pack has 3.04 square feet of plasticard.
The top post is a better deal if your want to buy alot, or are splitting the purchase with friends. My school has a giant knife for cutting throught reams of paper that we'll use to cut them in half exactly.
Releated to this topic. What thickness do folks find most uselful?
