This is the best place i've found.
http://www.floorheatingsystems.com/a...nsulation.html
they have gray and white 3 and 6 mm depron althought the white isn't listed on the web site.
If you give em a ring and explain what you want it for they'll split a pack for you.
don't know how much they charge for p&p coz i picked the packs i bought up.

http://www.shopcreator.com/mall/Wood...uct-875344.stm

These only have 6mm gray but if you buy 10 sheets they'll send it next day for free.

If you don't want to buy that much i've got boxes of the stuff in the shed, the guys at the local club buy it off me by the sheet.

Hope this helps.

10 squ m is about 20 planes...lol
You'll need more por and a lot of sharp blades for your knife..
When you get your depron store it flat, if you prop it up against a wall it'll pick up a curve.

Have fun.

I am going to get 10sqm of 6mm depron from www.birbek.com!

10sqm @ 2.63 = 26.30 plus VAT @17.5% 4.60 Total = 30.90 inc P+P (p+p is free on orders over 25)

Very reasonable price and if that makes 20 or so models that is ~ 1.55 per model! Cheap as Chips! :-)

10 / 10 for maths eh? lol :-)

Don't forget the VAT. My order came to 30:90 inc vat.
Is that 8/10 for maths now?? lol

It's the radio gear that bumps the cost up.

I gotta say i like the white depron more than the gray stuff, you can use permanent marker pens to give it a bit of colour.

At least i won't be the only one with a house full of planes.
good luck guys ..have fun with it.

Jim,
Floorheating systems are the uk importers of depron.
Last time i was there they had samples of coloured depron,
thay are planning a web site for model builders with smaller sized packs ect.

they already have white in 3 and 6 mm.
Don't know what the p&p is from them thought, i always pick the stuff up.

yeh epp would be good. I've been looking for ages but not found any yet.
and brushless motors you don't need to take a loan out on would be cool too...lol

i have made a wing out of 3mm depron and filled it with expanding foam it's real light and strong. i think it may even stand up to my flying (read crashing )

Well my 10 x sheet should be here tomorrow or Monday, birbek where out of stock for 1 day, but rang this morning to say there restocked now, Looks like i will have to buy a load of 3mm from http://www.floorheatingsystems.com
They sent me an email saying full packs only no pack splitting , so if you want to send me your 3mm scraps poacher i will take em .

Did you guys get your 6mm yet? was it clean , no dents ect...

Thanks . Jim
