    Dudes,I have a problem I hope you can help me solve.I live in a country in which I can't find styrene in any form,so the online shopping is the only way for me to get it.Now I was also hoping you could recommend me the best online shops for it,an also the best thickness of the sheets for scratch building. Thanks in front . :)

    060" also known as 1.5 mm styrene is a good thick sheet and what I would consider to be an average size. 030"/0.75mm is as thin as I'd go.

    If you don't have any hobby shops, you could go to a sign shop. They generally have 8X4 sheets in stock that they could cut for you.

    Ebay:
    If you don't have a hobby shop near you that carries it, I'd suggest ordering from Hobbylinc.com - Discount Hobbies up to 60% off.

    Here's a link about international ordering: International Ordering

    I've ordered styrene from them, as well as paint, and I've had nothing but great experience with them. They carry tons of styrene, tools, paints, etc.....pretty much anything you need in the hobby.
