I'm in Wisconsin, can you suggest a place I should order from?  I have been unable to find a local supplier.  Thanks!

I am picking up my Styrene today.  2 sheets of 3mm and I have ordered aluminum skins from Chani, do I need to order a sheet of .40 as well or can I just wrap the frame with the aluminum skin?
Thanks!

Sorry Kerrie,
The styrene frame and skins have to be bonded with Weldon 3.
You will have to go all styrene.

for some reason I was thinking Chani's skins were aluminum but they are styrene.  I believe I have everything I need now except for the Weldon.

Laird should have the weldon and the applicator.

On the knife front, Calvin is the bomb-digity!  I picked up one of the Kobalt knives at Lowes the other night, and it's 10,000x better than the Xacto one I had at the build day.

For those still gathering materials, I strongly suggest you get this knife
