Default Advice needed - flexible plastic

hi everyone

I need to cut a strip of plastic which I will bend into a curve and glue in place

it needs to be a bit more rigid than plastazote or neoprene as it needs to hold a good strong curve

it would be about 300mm x 10mm x 1mm

can anybody suggest a good material..?

cheers
Mike

edit - I' ve chopped up a 2.50 homebase washing up bowl which I think might do the trick

You need ABS my friend.

The thin stuff is prefect for what you want. The curved hull on this model (see image) was done with 1.6mm.

hey thanks I'll check it out

having said that I'm still having a good time with the chopped up washing up bowl - only 2.50 from homebase and very handy for little bits and bobs
