Suppliers in UK for building materials


New member
Hello all

Any scratch builders on here in the UK who has worked with Komacel/ Styrene/ PVC foam board. I'm looking for a hobby store or shop who carries the product so I can either go in or order from them online needs be.

Found lots of online suppliers but wanted to check with you guys before ordering from any online store.

I get my styrene from Cheap, always have good stock, and ship fast.

Komacel can be had from the US, but is expensive here in the UK. Available from I personally have no use for Komacel because it's really soft, and dents easily (none of my trucks are shelf queens).

Some people use wood. I've never used wood for a truck. What I have been thinking about trying is a body made from EVA foam...
