    Default Basic Styrene Stock List - Working with Modeling Plastics

    Many requests and questions come in about modeling with Styrene Plastic
    The following is part of a series of Plastic Modeling tips and tutorials that JKRC will be putting together for the SBG and RCCA

    As always read all the instructions....KJ doesn't want to be responsible for solvents in poorly ventilated areas

    Walking into a hobby shop and looking at racks and racks of supplies is a little daunting to start out so I made a list....

    Luckily this week we just returned from a much needed shopping trip to replenish stock!

    At first a few hundred bucks in modeling plastic seems expensive but once you buy it and just keep restocking i promise it wont seem so bad.

    My Basic Styrene Stock List (This is for Evergreen Products only)
    These are the basics. (These would run you approx $80 - $130 retail)



    These are the Evergreen Plastics Part Numbers

    Sheets
    9005 - Clear 015" Thick (0.4mm)
    9102 - Plain 015" Thick (0.4mm)
    9104 - Plain 030" Thick (0.75mm)
    9105 - Plain 040" Thick (1.0mm)
    9106 - Plain 060" Thick (1.5mm)


    Tube (Round)
    232 - 3/8 Tube
    227 - 7/32 Tube
    426 - 3/16 Tube
    425 - 5/32 Tube
    423 - 3/32 Tube


    Tube (Square)
    252 - .125 Sq
    253 - .188 Sq
    254 - .250 Sq
    255 - .312 Sq


    Rod
    212 - .080
    213 - .100
    214 - .125


    Strip
    142 - .040 x .040
    144 - .040 x .080
    146 - .040 x .125
    148 - .040 x .188
    149 - .040 x .250


    This is good to get started, the fun stuff starts when the specialty stuff comes in...that's a different thread

    You're welcome
    Not sure for online stores, only one of our vendors sells styrene (RPP Hobby) and he only has sheets.
    You're going to have to get online and do some looking unless one of the other members has a source?

    I don't know if they ship but One Stop is a site supporter and has a large selection of Evergreen products, and balsa, metal, etc. When I want custom building products, I go there.

    PM MuddyWaters - he works there.
