Increase your chance of finding different products in your search by widening your search from sintra (a brand) to expanded PVC foam sheet.

I found these when I did that. Remember these are just the first few that I clicked on in my search. You might want to still shop around or not and make sure the size you buy is enough for what you plan.

here http://www.montroy.com/catalog/main/itemdetail.app?item_no=MPVC06W

This one you can order an exact size and have it cut to that proportion before they ship it, as well as have it calculated right then and there. For 6mm remember to set the thickness to 0.236 inches.

I went to a local sign shop and got a 18"x40" 6mm for $20.00  I suggest hitting a sign shop up if you have one near by.    I checked the price on the sight listed and even though a 24x48 is cheaper, I saved $15 in shipping.  You don't have to spend a ton of dough to get good size scraps either.  So check them out.

Alright guys so I've decide to begin work on the small things, weapons, crushgaunts, trophies etc. Before really getting into the thick of, like my armor. The reason? Lack of creds and real time for hardcore  building! I just got finished applying for college and I have my finals soon so expect slower replies, nontheless I'll definatl get the smaller stuff done soon.

Found a cool base for cruchgaunts too, courtesy of Falin!

Got this stuff instead of the bondo brand, wondering if it'll work the same?
Also the instructions in the back suck! Hopefully I'll do it right ???

It should work just fine if you mix it properly.

It'll work just the same.   Body filler is body filler for the most part.

Yeah, the back instruction thing is not very detailed, sorry if I sound like a moron but how do you mix this thing?

Take a small amount of filler ( golf ball size ) and add about a 1/3 inch shot of hardener to it and mix it until it is a uniform color. apply it smoothly and quickly to your piece with a flat piece of plastic. It will start to shred as it hardens so work quick! Let it sit until dry. Sand smooth and repeat as necessary to cover your bucket where you need it.
