Modelling supplies

Post  smackman on Tue Oct 20, 2009 11:38 am

Just a quick question, does anyone know where to get sheets of pink foam (Polyethylene), specifically I'm looking for foam that is a little softer and not completely brittle like the standard white foam (Polystyrene).

Any home renovation place.. I highly reccomend the Co-op of course.

Home Depot, Rona, J&H all sell it though.. its basic insulation foam.

Yeah the pink stuff (Or Blue, I think Blue is more rigid) is super cheap from any home place. Sometimes they even have broken pieces for cheaper!

ummm I need a fair bit so I'll probably go pick some up myself, unless 'some left over' = 15"L X 8"W X 1/2"T (Pretty close to a square foot at 1/2" thickness)

Serious face now....

They had something planned I heard, but the mexican dude "Ramone" was actually murdered or something and the project had too many memories for Al to come back to. On the DvD commentary he talked a very little about it, and the commentary which was recorded like 10 years later he said this was his first time watching it, and it was very difficult to watch 'cause ofthe memories.

What were we talking about?

Yeah right! That's the dude, Raul, not Ramone. Plus at that time Micheal Richards was big time. Now he'd probably do it for much, much less.

I've got a piece that's 25" by 13ish" and 2 inches thick. It's a little beat up (a couple small holes and dents in it), but it's all your if you want it.

Ya, its that movie... with the terminators in it.... and David Bowe and the chick from the nanny that no one likes, but since I was too young when I saw it and I saw it when dvd's had been invented (on VHS tho, naturally) I'd have to say meh, but hey, whatever gets the grey hairs on your nuts going, right? [just called you guys old balls Wink ]

This certain piece of foam may have been a prop from UHF.
