Back in the day I always had a stock of litho plate. It looks like I will be covering the battery hatch with something on the Pilatus as the stringered finish just isn't right . So If anyone has some that they can cut into 2 x A4 sized sheets so the will fit into a hard backed photo envelope I would pay up to £5 for them to do that, or if within 25 miles I would collect. I don't want to trail around the local printers to see if they have any lying in a corner or cover it with thin ply. What's left over will do for the number of auxiliary hatches on the aircraft. Please.

Try a local printer - mine just weighs them in for scrap value after use, so I get them for free.

Always worth a try, although you might have to clean them off with acetone - a simple job.

Yes buy couldn't get small quantities only bulk or pottery plates, don't think their search engine recognises litho plate. Andrew767 is kindly sending me some.

Depends on thickness, e Bay does aluminium sheet in, I recall .3 and .5 mm sheets. I've got some from eBay UK, 1000mm by 500mm, not that expensive.

Accepted litho is work hardened. Mine is soft, ready to bend.
