Where to buy sintra/styrene/sheet plastic!
Post By Static. 08/11/10, 10:42 am

So I'm dipping my toe in the waters of prop making, and in the interests of making stuff con-safe, I am looking at plastic over wood for a pair of Mass Effect pistols. I know a few of you have used it before to make armour, but where on earth did you get it from? I've seen it called styrene and sintra (assuming it is a brand name?) and I'd love it if there were somewhere to get it in different weights...

Thanks everyone! <3

EDIT: Okay, well, ten seconds and Google just solved this problem for me XP HERPA DURR. Modelcrafts and Hobbies carry it, as do a few other NZ suppliers. Lesson learned - ask google before you ask the forums, lest you look stupid. nyahaha

I know you can often get sheets of styrene from trademe or from plastic companies. And am guessing you could probably get off-cuts relatively cheaply.

^That may help.
