What thickness of plasticard do I need to make good, basic buildings(not bunker thick, but broken apartment thick)? Also, is it hard to cut through with a exacto-knife?
no no my son, If you're going to be making buildings, and ruined buildings entirely out of something, do not go as far as plasticard buildings..they would get expensive.
Most of the buildings that are here in the scenery forum, are made from foam, or foamboard.
Foamboard is those sheets of foam with paper on each side, kids use them in their "science project board"
or what have you.
Comparitively, to the size of 28mm models, it is perfgect thicness for a normal concrete wall. (one would find in Imperial Housing, or Habitiation Block on a planet.
Normal corrugated cardboard is also this same thickness, but it is not as sturdy to work with, as it is partially hollow on the inside, plus the edges show the wavy cardboard center.
Double thickness foam or foamboard is roughtly the size of reinforced concrete, or "bunker thickness"
Plasticard, while more sturdy than them all, is still expensive, and to do single layer, at the thickness you desire....you're looking at sawing through it...not razor blade through it..
Rome wasn't built in a day, Either should good scenery.
nah plasticard is the worst for buildings unless they are very small as it is very expensive as shonuff mentioned and can be a bit annoying to cut, and with their minor thicknesses they won't hold as well as thick foamboards.
