Clicky: http://www.evergreenscalemodels.com/
Styrene is a modelling plastic and can be found in a varity of shapes and sizes from your local hobby shop (LHS). It's best to use a glue that 'welds' the pieces together. The best advice is comb the 1.9 threads to see what people are building with. Actually read this forum:

Try and find a plastic supplier, instead of your LHS.
If you can ask for a product called HIPS, you can get it in a few thicknesses from .5 to 2mm.
I got 2 sheets 1300mm x700mm for about $10 each sheet.

Good luck

The glue is called plasweld from your LHS, I got mine through a place in piper road, Bendigo. Sorry but I can't remember the name.

So are you in Melbourne like your profile says, or in Bendigo?

Agreed, Hobby shops are expensive, around $9 for a 200x200x1.6/3.0 last time I got some

You will have to order it, it's not an off the shelf product, it took 3 weeks to get mine as i had to wait for his supply order to come in. he con get it quickly but you will have to pay $ for it.
