Where can I buy EPP in Perth

Hi,

I am looking for EPP 6mm thick, not a big size. Only need 70x50 cm, but would like more if I can get it.
I am building my first 3D foamie, if I can't find EPP I will use Depron.
But apparently EPP is much stronger? I never use either so I don't know.
Can anyone tell me where I can get them in Perth?

Thanks.

Yes they guy sells Depron but not EPP.
I still can't find a place that sells EPP sheet.

You can get EPP in NZ at http://www.foamworks.co.nz/
They sell foam in 90x40cm and 6mm thickness or whatever you like and they also sell carbon rods and tubes which you would need if you made it out of EPP to make the plane rigid.

Ok, thanks for the info.
Too much trouble ordering EPP from outside Perth.
I picked up a couple of sheets 6mm and 3 mm depron instead today from Joondalup Floor heating place.

Originally I was going to build 24" 3D plane and I changed my mind and going for the 28" wingspan instead. I hope it's big enough for Perth being so windy most of the time.

yea, wind is a problem here too
I'm still trying to find a solution to overcome the wind. Increasing the wing loading can help.
