Guy at work gave me a pack of 12" x 48" x 1/8" foam sheets, packaged by midwest. It is white and light. Anyone know what kind of foam this is? What can i build with it?

That Midwest Cellfoam 88 is good stuff, I have used it, its similar to depron, I will Let you build anything you want with it LOL any plane that can be build with Depron Foam can be made with Midwest Cellfoam 88

Cellfoam 88 is an extruded closed-cell polystyrene foam material

Q: Where do I get the foam?
A: DOW FFF can be difficult to locate (Lowe's Hardware is a good starting place). It typically comes in a huge block of several foam sheets hinged together like an accordion (thus, fan FOLD foam). You can build 10-15 planes out of one pile. Midwest Cellfoam 88 and Depron are similar and can usually be found at your local hobby shop. I prefer CF88 but it is a bit expensive. Other people recommend paper covered foam sheets available at Hobby Lobby Crafts and Dollar Tree.

Thanks, Chellie. As for fan fold, have plenty available here in the sunny south. 2" or 3" foam for wing core cutting is rather scarce.
