Modelling Tip Of The Day – 23

This Modelling Tip Of The Day is an ongoing series, in which we’ll be posting a modelling tip that may be of use to the newbie right up to the seasoned modeller.

Today’s tip is:


Use polystyrene for forming the landscape such as hills, embankments, cuttings etc. Worth asking around shops & supermarkets etc if they have any waste polystyrene they don’t want, as often they’ll give it away for free. Also check out the local DIY shops & insulation suppliers for sheets of polystyrene.

Use PVA glue to fix the polystyrene in place & once the glue has set use a hand saw to cut to the shape you require. This can get messy when cutting using a handsaw. A cleaner cut can be made using a hot wire cutter.
