Default Corrugated plastic sheeting

Hi guys!

I've seen that some people make their own sport and combat planes out of some sort of corrugated plastic sheeting. Does anyone know where I can find this type of stuff?

Thanks!

Eric

called Coroplast...

can order online from a few spots. the last time I bought it (which was a few years back) I found a wholesaler for signs (most of the gas station signs are corplast)

I have asked stations for old ones and they have given me a few....

Thank you Exeter,

I didn't even know what the name of that stuff was. I guess I'll have to start asking around at the local sign-makers and even the gas stations! LOL!

Best wishes,

Eric

You can get all you want for FREE!

All the Political signs you see are generally made of this material. Just pull over and grab a bunch. Can't get into trouble because the signs are give ups. Well, not if they are in someone's yard.

The lettering will peel off with a bit of effort, or just let it be.

You can always ask your local sign shop to save the scraps.
