hey thanks, no they are not made from card board but its simular in structure, its a corrigated plastic, like the stuff that for sale signs are made from. its a fairly good material to work in , easy to get your hands on easy to bend and cut, the only downfall is the lines that run through it, but thats no biggy. :)

Looking fab.

If you want a plastic that dosen't have lines into try foamex plastic thats used for shop signs. I used it for my Sephiroth armour and its fab. Easy to cut and shape. Also ist very smooth and lightweight.
