I recently found this board material called Sintra(brand)/ PVC foam board. It feels like polystyrene but denser and it is much easier to cut than cardboard with the same thickness. I see that it is usually marketed for signboard making in my country.

It comes in different colors and thickness. And it costs about $8 for a 4 ft X 8 ft sheet here. I read somewhere that thickness greater than 3mm can't be cut with a craft knife. I haven't tested it yet using an arch puncher.

Right now, I'm using it (2mm thickness) with high gloss sticker paper for building my copy of Dune Express. So far, I'm loving the way it looks. Pieces look much better than the ones made from foam board.

I will post pictures once I'm finished.

Dune express finished!

Caution: pvc is poisonous, it leaks dioxins that bio accumulate.
