    Hi Guys,

    Just looking for ideas on where to get the perspex front section for building a slide lightbox, for the purpose of 'macro photography scanning' my slide film.

    I'm assuming white translucent perspex woult be the best option, just not sure where to cheaply get an A4 size piece, or if there are better alternatives out there??

    I see bunnings sells the stuff but it's only in big sheets and a bit more than I'd like to pay at this stage.

    Any advise appreciated :thumbup:

    I've used them before - but i needed a full sheet.

    i recall them having all sorts of sizes/leftovers. You might be able to find somewhere in melbourne like this.
