    I tried looking for Styrene plastic at craft shops, but they say try looking in Hardware stores, still is a no go. I've tried doing searches on the web but you know how it is. Can anyone give me a couple of good links to websites that sell styrene plastic? Also any tips on how to mold the plastc to what I want would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to find a hobby shop. About the only thing craft stores are good for is doll house hinges. If you don't have one near you, use the link Napjr gave, or do a google search of hobby shop, or scale model supplies.

    Quoted for truth. Hobbytown USA is a nationwide hobby chain that carries styrene. Try looking for one in your area.

    Is this the foam stuff with thick paper on both sides? If so you can get it at Walmart.
