You need the polyurethane stuff from Home Depot which is brown colored and covered with foil or you can go to an insulation supply company and get some polyisocyanurate foam that is used on roofs, usually commercially. The polyiso comes in different thickness's and is somewhat structural as they have to make it tough enough to walk on. I've made 4x4x4' fishboxes with just it and no ply. Cut to shape and either pin together with wire or nails or tape with metalic foil tape like used in AC ductwork and then glass. Sam
