What I did, was take the line drawings from a 1/35 scale kit and had them blown up to 1/6 scale (or as near as possible) to use as a template. The cost was minimal and the drawings at that size give you the ability to guage if your part is the right size prior to getting too deep into assembly.

It's looking pretty good. You might want to take a look at mattboard as well. The stuff they use for matting photos and such. It comes in a variety of colors, takes paint decently and with a little bit of reinforcing, rather sturdy.

It can be found at any art store, or AC Moores.

This is a RainbowAvenue-class project, and you've done some flat impressive fabricating, mattlocke06. I really like the onesix fabricator, complete with torch rig, sleeves and apron.
