Another source for better quality foam board


FYI, if you live in the west coast near LA or SF, Tokyo Central has in stock multicolored better quality foam board. The paper appears to be higher quality as well as the adhesive to the foam. Looks about the same size as the DTFB. Itís alittle more expensive than DTFB at $1.50 per sheet.

Wow that's cheap! Locally I paid £10 for 5 sheets of foamboard that is quite a bit heavier that dtfb. And only availible in white or black. That's why I moved to hk foam and coloured packing g tspe

Below is the closest drawing to the original 20" blitz model... for its build dimensions .. the original is slightly smaller and has twin fins with no rudder
Here is a link to my build thread on both sizes.... for all the info in one place..

the 20" version should be easy to cut from the cheap foam board or from the hobbyking 5mm foam
dont forget the laminating film for a tough model.
