Where do I get plastic card at? Hobby Lobby and Walmart didn't have any and had no idea what I was talking about. Thank you.

You can always order from different sources, look around on the net.

I got mine at a local hobby shop.

A heads up though, "hobby shops" usually tend to be primarily dedicated to one hobby, usually Trains or Planes.

I bought my 'card at a train-based shop.

Hobby Lobby actually does. Go poke around the stained glass making section. Barring that, it's around the model trains. In the United States, it's called "sheet styrene" which gets some people confused because it's not styrofoam... but yeah. Failing all that, a for sale sign from the hardware store works well-- that's what I've been using.

IN THE US? ASK ME HOW TO GET 10% OFF GAMES WORKSHOP PRODUCTS!

Ask for sheet styrene (two big manufacturers are Plastruct and Evergreen. Evergreen usually have a green display (go figure, huh?).

For general duty, 1mm is often used, but it's also known by a 3 digit number like "040", These number codes - "020", "010", "080" are measurements called "thous" (not as in thee and thou, but as in thousand) as they are fractions of a thousandth of an inch.

I use combinations of 0.5mm, 1mm and 2mm for general model work.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
