Default Thin plywood, where to buy?

I'm looking for plywood thinner than the 'standard' 1/8" (3.something
mm) that one can buy most places. I don't need much, a couple of 8' x
4' sheets would probably be all I need for a year or so. However I do
need some reasonably large pieces rather larger than I can find from
all the modelling suppliers that result from searching in Google.

Also, what are the standard thicknesses less than 1/8", it would help
searching if I knew?

SLEC for sure will ship the smaller sizes in 4x4 sheets. And 8x4 sheets
as well

Call em. There are other places too..more wood merchants than model
suppliers

Ineptocracy

(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to
lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are
rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a
diminishing number of producers.

Thanks, just what I was looking for, expensive isnt't it! They're
actually not all that far from me so, when I have decided exactly what
I want, it might pay to go and collect it.

SLECS prices went through the roof a year or two back. Couldn't get
balsa and the ply was scare too. No idea why. Probably the balsa all
went into windmills and the birch all went into eco power stations
