    http://www.estreetplastics.com/ is where I bought my stuff. I liked it a lot when I received it, nicely packaged with no damages to the surface.

    Plexi and acrylic are the same thing. Plexiglas is a registered trademark name. There are two KINDS of acrylic though, cast and extruded. I strongly recommend the cast acrylic, as it is stronger, denser and has a much higher melting point. I recently did an all-acrylic scratchbuild and bought all my sheet material from estreet plastics as well. Very happy with the product, only complaint I had was ths shipping charges, but they have smaller pieces available that can't be found elsewhere. Check out their site, their selection is excellent.
