Status is: Model Plane Foam Inc. has been formed to develope product specifications and distribute Model Plane Foam. We are working to define the "final details" so production can begin. Hopefully in the next few weeks.

Has Model Plane Foam Inc. received a sample of 6 mm material that is comparable in finish, strength, and density to Depron?

No, we have not seen or received such a sample. We have been trying for months and it has just not happened.

That said, we have seen enough to be confident the manufacturer can make it. We are ready to invest thousands of dollars in a substantial first production run. We are in the process of defining the details of that first run. We would like to have a sample but at this point it appears asking for the sample would just delay the first production run again.

We want the foam to sell. We know the market is right here, right now. We are trying to get the foam ASAP. And we are willing to invest the capital. All we need now is for the manufacturer to accept the order and produce the foam.

one small step....

Stay tuned! Another small step today. The manufacturer has suggested two workable skid package configurations. Details like this need to be worked out and agreed to before trucks can be loaded with product. We are still waiting on final box dimensions and fitting into the production schedual. But we are getting closer! Get some extra popcorn and your fav' beverage and keep watching.
