This is my first time posting a thread on this forum, and i think i uploaded some pictures wrong, but it doesn't really matter. If you can see the pictures above, they are of my randomly designed fuselage. Its made out of i think 2.5mm
plastic, it has the characteristics of perspex but this plastic i am using is a LOT more flexible. But when structured right
its extremely strong and flexible, i don't know why it hasn't been used before, or maybe it has?

Anyway thats all

thanks for reading

Kind regards

That looks good.
If it has the characteristics of Perspex it will be rather heavy but it looks much more like a foam sheet.
Have you have rounded off the edges by sanding? That would be hard to do in Perspex!

My guess is its 3mm Depron sheet - which is used a lot and is an excellent plane building material.

A close up of the edge of a piece should help identify it.
