I am from hyderabad. Can anyone suggest me a place, where I can get plastic models made. I am very new to this business. So can any one suggest which material is the best for making airplane models and hovercraft models.

Plastic, as in Moulding? There are several places in the NCR, where you can get moulding done (Dont know Hyderabad so well), its cheap, and works for most plastics (ABS, Nylon, Oylon, HDP, etc...). If you want to use Acrylic, you can buy acrylic sheets and get them cut, and use the cut peices to build your model. However, for Airplane models, Last I checked (and that was quite a while ago...), Balsa Wood, was quite popular. I believe that Corro-Plast and some new light plastics are being used, but I dont have much idea about how you can use such flimsy materials for modelling.
