We will always try to have some of all these items at all shows, however the stocks we take will be limited, and if you require specific amounts or sizes, you should contact us at least 7 Days before the show, to allow us time to get stock in. The Pre-Show Payment Discount is not available on these items. We plan to expand the product base and include scenic materials and other suitable items to go with our products.

Foam Board or Foam Core - this basically sheet polystryene foam sandwiched between two layers of card. Its light wieght and strong, and easy to work with. This is the basic material that I use on a lot of my handmade models. We stock the following sizes:

3mm in A3 & A2

5mm in A3 & A2

10mm in A2

Rigid Expanded PVC Foam Sheet/Card - Similiar to Plastic Card, but light weight and easier to cut. It is flexiable and bends easy, and if warmed with hot water, can be shaped. It can also be carved, sanded etc. Commonly used for sign making, it also an ideal materail for making large models. Available in:

1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 8mm, 10mm, all in A3
