I did some build work over the weekend with the Adams board. It is thinner, softer, and the card peals easier that the previous board from Bunnings and Gordon Harris art supplies. Seems to do the job and is a tad lighter I think!
For the cost of the freight I can purchase a lot more sheets locally of the board I already use. In addition I have become quite adept at removing the paper where needed and so I save 30% of the board weight for each side I remove the paper from. The size becomes important when I build larger planes as I do not like "Joined" fuselages!
In addition the foam itself, (with all of the paper removed), can almost double for DEPRON in building such planes/models.
As I use FB in multiple thicknesses from 3mm to 5.5mm the supplier mentioned does not offer an adequate range in thicknesses and so to order a single thickness from one supplier with freight added would be against my business model.
Thank you for the information but at this time the supplier is too expensive and too remote for my purposes as I get local delivery FREE!
Gordon Harris art supplies carry 3/6/12mm board in 500x750 or 1000x750 - prices are ok - the paper is hard to remove unless in strips, especially on the 3mm - good quality FB - I am using some now on my DLG wing.
Uncle Bills carries the 5.5mm Ready Board (DTFB).
Bunnings carries FB too, but I don't know the brand.
