real models

Hi folks:
	I am implementing the modeling of a nucleoprotein complex. In 
addition to the computer-aided manipulation, a real model can often 
stimulate one's imagination ( as you can see in Watson's "Double Helix" 
). Well, a stick-ball model is too complicated for the modeling 
of macromolecules. A ribbon-like material may serve the purpose, if to 
some extent it can be folded or fixed. I am wandering where I can find 
this kind of material for the "crude" modeling of macromolecules. I hope 
some commercial materials are available or maybe other suggestions can be 
given like clay or aluminum foils.
	Please tell me if any idea had occurred to you about this matter.

Thank you for your attention and happy Chinses "Dragon boat" day.

	Wen-Shyong Tzou
