Depending on the size of the hull 4mm seems rather thick, unless your hull is over 50" long.

Try the LHS, or a well sorted carpenter, there is plywood, so thin, you can cut it with a pair of scissors.
Or use 1mm balsa strips to cover the frames.

Please post a pic of your hull in your gallery.

Regards, Jan.

Sorry for the bouncing mails, it appeared my mailbox at the server was blocked by a few large videos that had returned as undelivered, I wasn't aware of that.

Please try it again, I'm "unblocked" now.

Regards, Jan.
