Foamboard in Australia from foamboards.com.au
Hi Fellow Scratch Builders ,
I have started this thread for foam board that is available here in Oz as I don't think anybody has started a thread on Aussie Foam Board.
It is similar to the Dollar Tree foam board but there are some differences, I would like modellers to share their techniques with other builders, I know some techniques will be the same as Rediboard but put them in anyway.
Some differences between the two boards are Aussie board paper covering is very evenly applied, harder to remove, obviously does not cost a dollar, still cheaper than Depron and the Rediboard is not available in Oz.
Australian Foam Board is available from http://www.foamboards.com.au/
Some techniques are:
Paper removal is to soak the paper with Methylated Spirits and allow plenty of time to soak, 10 minutes plus and peel.
Use of coloured packing tape to decorate your model, this video is from Ed at Experimental Airlines .
Please people add more and photo's of your projects.
Here is a video of my Bloody Wonder after it took a 20 metre nose dive into the ground,
And some other builds I have done.

Hi, I am an Aussie and I have also spent some time looking for local general suppliers. A few I have found only recently are:
http://www.tradewarehouse.com.au/more/depron-foam.html for Depron, fiber tapes and some other bits and pieces.
http://www.boltrc.com/ for some more specific RC gear.
http://micro-motor-warehouse.com/pages/about for some good quality brushed micro motors.
All these websites are Australian based I believe. Love to keep it local.
