Iam not sure of this but i think they have better and cheaper access to epp foam. I see alot of their planes on their forums built from epp. joe

Just for clarification. DZ(me) is not open for business on Saturday's. So if you happen to call and I don't answer, just leave a message. After sunset I will return your call. More than happy to take care of you. However, Springer takes care of most if not all daily shipments. I step in when he's out of town.

Yeah, forgot about that! There has to be role for all that excess door seal manufacturing capability. We need to figure a way to build planes out of hollow rubber door seals Stuff is kinda heavy though...

Model plane foam

Are they shipping this product to Australia. Would love to get my hands on some.my last lot of depron foam was from rc foam and shipping was around $35 which I thought was pretty good. Foam here in Australia is way to expensive,much cheaper to have it shipped half way round the world.

Yendor: We can't get our standard box to Oz for anything like reasonable shipping. I'm periodically looking at what might become an "international size" sheet and box to get under the dimensional weight penalties, but so far even what I've come up with hasn't gotten "reasonable" yet. How much did you get of the Depron for $35?

Hey Guys. Sorry if this has been addressed already. I'm curious if there have been any talks about getting MPF in other colors? You can get Depron in Black, which is nice if you're planning to build an f-117 and don't want to paint the whole thing.
Or you can just throw in some black trim to add some style without any paint, like this here:

Did not find how much for my last depron order ,but found an invoice for the last lot of 9mm epp 12 sheets 18x36 inches .$60 for the foam and $50.99 for postage. $110.99 including postage. Almost half the price than getting it here in Sydney Australia. In other words $50 postage would not stop me buying from the usa.
