[Archive] I need plasticard

Bassman:

Hello guys,

when I need plasticard I usually go to my local hobby store to get some sheets. The big issue is that they have only plain sheets and some little rods… not a great range of pieces.

I’m looking for an online shop (possibly in Europe) where I can buy bunches of sheets and many shapes of plasticard at reasonable prices.

I’d like to find places with rivits, bolts and many shapes… sheets with different textures… well I suppose you got what meant :hat .

Thank you :hat off

I've found plasticard to be ridiculously priced in Europe. The two manufacturers are American so it might explain the problem. The main consumers are the model railway hobby so try such a store, if your local store isn't one. Try these 2 for purchasing or a local supplier.

I always get mine either from my local hobby store ModelZone or ebay is a great place to buy in bulk.

RedRaven:

I do get 0.8 mm A2 plasticard sheets for no more than 1.80 �,�, and 2.5 mm A2 for around 3.00 �,�.

Where to get them? Bet the easiest way is to look for a stationery-technical shop, or even better, go to your nearest university of architecture, they tend to be great plasticard & other cool material stuff consumers. They should be able to guide you locally, which is always a better idea than going into the internet.

Oh, and comparing price with hobby store, stationaries have it way cheaper. And I found out that Vallejo paints are to be found there a bit cheaper too.
