Kind of a dumb question...
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, December 23, 2003 12:26 AM
Do hobby shops typically carry sheet and strip styrene? If not, who would?

The only dumb question is the one you don't ask! At least thats what they told me in boot camp. Any hobby shop worth its salt will have some assortment of styrene building supplys. The better the shop, usually, the more varied the assortment . Another source would be the internet.

If you're talking about something larger than what you can buy from an Evergreen display try your yellow pages(business to business) for a plastic distributor. I get mine locally from a place that distributes all types of plastics and they can order all types and thicknesses of styrene, it comes in 4'x8' sheets in case you're doing a large project

Well since we are on the subject. Where would be a good place to find 1/25th scale sheet styrene that is brick and or cinderblock pattern for dioramas?

Check the hobby shop that specializes in trains. I think 'G' scale is 1/24 and I've seen all sorts of plastic sheet with bricks, boards, paneling,.... etc.
Evergreen has a good selection of different patterns.
