The recently departed Bob Hurd had some stuff called "Durobatics foam." It was very well suited to building tiny model airplanes similar in size to the Parkzone Micro gear, but it's no longer in production after his death.

I think it sold for a whopping $6 for an 8"x12" sheet of 1.3mm foam. Or, in other words, $192 for a standard eight-by-four. How's that for profit margin?

I don't think I'd be willing to pay $192 for an 8x4, but there's definitely a market. Plantraco and a few other companies make kits from the stuff, and with it NLA, they're left high and dry.
