    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!

    RE: Corrugated plastic sheeting

    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

    RE: Corrugated plastic sheeting

    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.
