Oh nice, thanks! yeah, I'll probably need some "EXIT" and other type signs too.

I've bought some modelling tools from Blick as I remember, they do have a good selection of things.
I tried looking for that 3/4" black gatorfoam board, but it was ridiculously expensive and I saw some of it in 4x8 foot sheets for $173.

I bought six of those and a can of Krylon spray adhesive, here's what some of them look like,
