      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

I've used 3/16" thick foamboard for walls on several dioramas. It's easy to cut with an X-acto knife and a metal straightedge. It takes paint well, or can be covered with brick paper, and it's fairly cheap. I use cheap underlayment 1/4" plywood for things like garage floors and sidewalks.

Pretty much the same stuff I use too . I'll use .060 sheet plastic for a floor and generally 1/4 inch luan plywood as a base material . You can apply Bondo over the wood and over Foam core too for texture and terrain ............
