Default Source for honeycomb sheets

I need to make some lightweight bulkheads and battery support plates. I need to find a source for 1/8" lightweight honeycomb sheets. Attached is a picture of the honeycomb pipe floor material that came with my Smaragd pattern plane.

Thanks - SWK550

Oh my, maybe I'm wrong, but it looks like a lot of the cells are filled with resin. That makes it very heavy. If that is really what it looks like, then I would send that one back for one that was layed up properly.
