I have modeled a fair bit, transferring parts from different sets to get different looks, using greenstuff for small add-ons and other things, but I was wondering where do people buy plastic card? I have seen some beautiful conversions with the stuff and I was considering a scratch built rhino for a first project.

I was also wondering what people use for small chain and fine mesh, and where to get both of these. Please keep in mind I am Canadian so stores found here would be greatly appreciated.

well buddy I dont know specific stores but I use general modelling stores for plasticard and mesh and chain etc. and also, craft shops can come in handy for useful little bits if that helps at all

Small chain is simple enough, check out beading/diy jewellery/general art stores. Plasticard Im not too sure.

@ bitsandkits

I looked through your site and noticed that you sell everything I am looking for, but a couple items are not in stock (milliput, and fine chain). When will they be in stock?
I also noted that your plasticard selection states the thickness, but I could not find the dimensions of each sheet.
I was wondering if you had any chain that was a little more course than 24 links per inch, which sounds quite small. The reason for my question is that I have a looted furriso on my workbench that will eventually be grappling onto an assault marine and I do not think chain that fine would hold him up.

Wouldn't the shipping of sheets of plastic be expensive from the UK to Canada? I was hoping to go somewhere local to avoid this. Thank you bitsandkits for your site, but does anyone know of a canadian store that sells these products?

Ok firstly the milliput is back in stock, the chain however is a ongoing issue, the plasticard sheets are about 11 inches by 8 inches or about the same size as an A4 sheet of paper.
Our postage and packing is £1.80 to Canada regardless of the size or weight of the order and free if you spend over £22 in a single order.
