@crappie — The http://www.digcomdesigns.net/ website is only producing a blank page this morning. I hadn't thought of making containers out of heavy paper. I use a lot of 110# paper so it's already laying around. (For comparison, normal printer paper is 20#.)

The website appears to be up now.  You can also go to www.strikeforcehobbies.com and click on DigCom Designs PaperCraft Products, about 1/3 way down page on left, or check them out on Facebook if you are on there, as that is where they usually announce new models.  I've ordered thru their FB page and the strikeforce page with no issues.  I use photo paper (8.5 mil thickness) for the printouts as I feel it gives a better finish to the model.  Here are a couple 53' trailers I have made.

Thanks! I even posted a reply to your blog post regarding where to find foam sheets in Southern California and put the link to the place where I bought my 1" & 2" thick sheets.
