Embossed styrene with modern corrugations expected to become popular with modellers of recent times.
Slater's Plastikard has a new embossed styrene sheet in its range. Coded 0455 and designed to closely replicate steel cladding, the 298mm x 174mm grey/brown coloured sheets feature raised rib and bolt detail.
Embossed detail is more obvious on the outer face, though its inner-face is equally useable if painted and left 'as-is' for a shed interior.
Available in 4mm:1ft and 7mm:1ft scales, sheets are easily cut with a sharp scalpel or craft knife and can be bonded to other similar styrene materials with a solvent adhesive to clad a shed, modern farm building or warehouse model. The material is often seen on roofs, too.
Sheets are easily flexed, allowing it to be wrapped around building curves if needed.
