you're gonna need some thick foam if you're gonna be doing that... perhaps you could mock it up out of paper, then make it out of craft foam + stuff the inside? or paper mache or something like that. I'm not sure you'll be able to find foam that thickness and then be able to cut/sand/whatever it down

Craft foam can be purchased at Warehouse stationary for around $4 for a pack of 10 or so..
although they are only around A4 sheets..
