The panel isnt anything special, just followed the theory listed on this forum previously, (with some of my own quirks included).  The damping material is 64kg/cubic metre rigid fibre glass 50mm thick held about 45mm away from the wall with a canvas membrane over the front (on which I had one of my photo's printed).  The back is open to the room. 

Vaughan:
How many panels did you make ?

alanB:
Just the one at this point, will be making more in due course.

What's a good value for money mic to get?  Did you use a specialised sound card?

I used a Behringer ECM8000 (@ R897-00 atm from Soundz). It does need phantom (48V) power though, so you'll need a mixer or a sound card with this built in. The costs would probably amount to more than what you'd want to pay.

Vaughan:
Alan, for you're needs, you don't need the Behringer nor do you need the associated gear to use it. You don't need a specialized sound card either (with perfect noise or frequency response) as the sound card measurements will be ignored from the results via the loop back connection that compensates for any deviation in the sound card response.

I even used my built-in sound card on my PC (which is crap) with no issues whatsoever. As long as the sound card has line in and out you'll be fine.

Regards,
