    Default Suppliers in UK for building materials

    Hello all

    Any scratch builders on here in the UK who has worked with Komacel/ Styrene/ PVC foam board. I'm looking for a hobby store or shop who carries the product so I can either go in or order from them online needs be.

    Found lots of online suppliers but wanted to check with you guys before ordering from any online store.

    thanks

    Andy

    I get my styrene from http://www.stationroadbaseboards.co.uk/. Cheap, always have good stock, and ship fast.

    Komacel can be had from the US, but is expensive here in the UK. Available from https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161936952207. I personally have no use for Komacel because it's really soft, and dents easily (none of my trucks are shelf queens).

    Some people use wood. I've never used wood for a truck. What I have been thinking about trying is a body made from EVA foam...
