The Oatey 4" foam spacer material is sold at Home Depot stores within the USA, and is located in the plumbing section of such stores. It is extremely cheap, with a full roll of the material (good enough for 2 or 3 antenna jobs) costing just over $1.
Because this material is so cheap and because it is actually quite important for proper FSL coil sensitivity, substitutions are not recommended. Already one DXer did a very good job in constructing his 3" FSL PL-380 model but used a different type of foam, and ended up with seriously reduced MW sensitivity as a result. If someone is unable to track this material down and seriously wants to build the model, I'm very willing to send an Oatey foam pack for the cost of postage.
