    Seems like a lot of people on the board are just using thin cardboard for their builds and seems extremely useful for all sorts of scratch building. I have some on the backs of old drawing pads, but is there a place i can go to to just buy sheets of it?

    I have used a quite a bit of this for my builds. In all different forms. I have gotten it from Utrech art supplies.

    Save On Discount Utrecht Chipboard, Brown, 29 x 46 in & More Chipboard at Utrecht

    There are other places but I found them the most reasonable. I had bought a box of 20 to build a Boushh & Boba Fett amongst some other things & I still have quite a bit of it left. It is great to work with & I recommend using a wood glue. If you want to give it a hardened edge use some super glue.

    If you have any other questions let me know.

    I found some 2mm chipboard at a local Hobby Lobby. Its greyish in color, but works great. You can mist it with water to really work the shape. It glues pretty solid with wood glue.
    I believe it was 8.99
