Best place to buy EPP for shipping international?

Hello fellow flyers.

I want to order some EPP plates 9mm white, for my scratchbuilds. But I got no experience with buying EPP online from online shops. EPP is not sold in Norway, so I need another source for thoose plates.

Does anyone know about a good site to buy EPP from without killing me with expensive shipping?

Hopeing for answer

Thanks ~~

Regards-

Hi!

I've made a note about a German site, but never bought anything there myself. Have a look at:

http://www.epp-versand.de/

In German, but you can have Google to translate it if you want. They have a Unit price for shipping, hopefully that helps.


I have actually bought some EPP planes from England, www.flyingwings.co.uk, and they sell EPP sheets as well. Shipping was very costly though...

Seems cheap to buy from FlyingWings, only 7 british pund for shipping to Norway. Only problem is, will it come fine or will it come broken? Big chanse for getting broken plates?

EPP is not easily broken. the material is very pliable.while you are placing your foam order also order 1x6 and .06x5mm CF strip for stiffeners and spars
if you are going to use foam thinner than 9mm then you will need to downsize the strip.

I also need 5 sheets of 9mm and 5 sheets of 3mm.
If you live somewhere close to Oslo we can split the shipping cost.

Hi.

I just bought epp for more than 100 euros at EPP-Versand.
I ordered it the 16. at 10 pm. 12 hours later I got a confirmation mail and according to to the track and trace nr, I also got, it will be delivered tomorrow the 19. I live in Denmark. That's fast! And the shipping costs is only 15 euros (114 dkr.) It is more expensive to send a packet like that from Saelland to Jutland. And as mentioned earlier they have unit price on shipping, so it would be same price to Norway.

Hilsen fra Danmark.

I can also recommend Christian at http://www.epp-versand.de/. Really prompt service, packed very well and good consistent EPP and carbon.
