Did you put an order in at Farco?

When I got mine the lady in the office (in Jax) stated that they had all 3 types but the two non 1/8" were ordered for Brian but they had 12 sheets of 1/8". Which allowed me to be able to get two sheets. From what she was stating Jax normally has 1/8" while Orlando and Ft Lauderdale typically stock the other two types, one at each location, and just to call to order the other two and they could have them transferred here to Jax.

Not sure if your the Brian that has an order waiting in Jax or if there is another Brian out there that is getting all the styrene he needs for a droid.

No it wasn't me.
I do need to get some 3mm so I can get these droids complete.

I had 2 .125 (3mm) sheets on order being site to site shipped from Jax to Orlando.

They are showing .125 out in all locations at this time, though.  2-3 month wait time.

I guess their system inventory was off, and you got the last few sheets that were left.  They are saying it'll be at least the first of the year before it's back in, and the price is unknown because there have been at least 2 price increases since the last time they ordered.

I did get a few other leads for places here in town, so I'll check with them I guess.

It looks like I'm back in business!

Sabic had the 4x8 sheets for $40, and had 12 in stock here in Orlando.  Thus I should have my material today!

I guess I need to get a hold of Todd to buy some frame printouts today, too.

I emailed you back. Did you get it?
I'm hoping Farco gets plastic soon, I'm running out.

It'll be at least February from what I'm being told.  If you need any, give a call to Sabic.  I'm not sure if they are in Jacksonville, but they definitely have an Orlando office, and they were $40 a sheet.

I have 3 sheets waiting to be picked up this afternoon.

Thanks

Is this what I need to use to build a styrene frame?

That seems expensive for the size sheet that it is.  I'm not sure where you are, but I think you can do better than that price-wise.
