If you buy 0.4mm ply in the hobby shops here it is very expensive, Avon Plywood in Bristol charge £65 plus vat for a sheet 1.2 x 1.2 m, by far the cheapest way to buy it, I am not sure that they post it though! I am lucky enough to be able to pick it up, which, if anybody wanted to order some from Avon Plywood, I would happily pick it up and bring to any meetings I may be attending!

See this site, he is shipping rolled up to 1.5 m cost to value...for P&P
His sheets are 1.5x1.5 m 0.4 , 0.6 and 0.8 mm
0.4 mm € 95.90, 0.6 mm € 92.50 and 0.8 mm € 71.50
just ask him to cut 50 mm of the sheet so it fits the tube.
I can help if needed to organize this for you, in my German... :roll:
Depending how big the parts for sheeting have to be would either one do I believe.

I am in the process ordering a few sheets for the SF27 M shortly.

Thanks Jilles, I will chase that up, but keep in mind I'm at the other end of the country to Auckland . . :lol: Actually, I'm only 2 hours from a mutual friend, Jack. I am looking forward to seeing his new sagetta fly.

Cheers

Is that from this plan? Looks terrific. Good job.

PS:- Update on NZ 0.4mm ply supply. NZ$174.00 + GST(15%) + approx. $100 freight for 1.2 x 1.2m. Total NZ$300.10 OUCH! :o

It is from the plan,but, Pat changed a lot to his way of building, I can say that he did not use any .4mm ply anywhere!
