Model making foam

Extruded Polystyrene has been used extensively for model making, including for model railways, model boats, surf boards, architectural modelling, sculptures, and table-top games such as Warhammer.

Extruded Polystyrene sheets are 25mm to 100mm thick and can be cut and shaped into almost any shape or dimension. Boards can also be easily glued together with a Polystyrene-compatible adhesive to make thicknesses greater than 100mm.

Boards can be shaped into a variety of shapes using traditional woodworking tools to create realistic mountains, buildings, valleys, and scenery. Extruded Polystyrene is a closed-cell board with high rigidity, so even when carved it maintains its structural integrity.

Once shaped boards can be painted or finished in a variety of manners. The lightweight nature of Foamular also makes it ideal for portable models or displays.
