I use Dow Blue-Core or Owens Corning Pink fan-fold foam board. It's 25 sheets 24 x 48 x 1/4 ( 6mm roughly) making a 200 sqft. fan-fold bundle.

They are real simple. I took a yoke set and bent the yoke and sandwiched the yoke between a sawed off paint stick. For the nose wheel i cut another yoke set in half and bend it down mid shaft and add a 90 degree bend on the opposite end to hold it's position between the paint sticks. I fasten the whole contraption together with strapping tape and in the case of the Berkut I hot glued the tricycle to the bottom of the nacelle.
Real Hi-tech stuff.

Five Piece Construction

Bobdaeronort, Where you indicate the folds on your plans, how do you make those? I finally cut each piece loose (I'm using FFF) and reglued with hot melt. The folds just would not bend properly. Do you cut a "V" in the sheet to facilitate the fold? Much obliged.
