What do you guys use for model backgrounds when taking pics of the finished model? I'm looking at using a blue background. Or do you use photoshop and change the background to a universal blue?

Rob,
I have used both blue and white posterboard in the past for my backgrounds. Lately, I have been using heavy weight art paper, found at Michaels and/or Hobby Lobby, where there is an almost endless selection of colors. But the easily sourced posterboard should suffice for most applications.

I've got no idea what poster board is. Is it flexible paper or quite tough stuff where a photo enclosure is made from?
