Hi Bradley,

From which region are you? Been talking to a laser cutter in Alberton about doing ply... He seems to think it's no problem. He did some ply before... & can work directly from paper drawings & various digital formats. (dont ask which cos there i am clue-less)

Problem is they are very busy & laser-time might be a problem for "playing"?!

Also recently had a guy do some foamboard for me.... not a good plan. Will check if he can do ply...

Hi Bradley

There are 2 guys in Gauteng that I can recommend. They both build models and fly, so they know what's what with balsa and ply. (that sort of rhimes, lol)

1. Alan Ralph - Kempton Park. 072 330 7783

2. Tommie Prinsloo - Pretoria. 082 371 6409. He has a 80W machine and can cut up to 900mm lengths. Been using Tommie a lot lately for my Witblitz kits.

Cheers
Christo
