Hi guys (& gals),
Just wandering what thickness plasticard I should use for the constuction of the wheelhouse on a freelance tug model in 1/32 scale and what thickness for the main deck.
I know a lot of you use ply etc but I'm going down the plastic route!!!
Look forward to your replies

All the best fellow tuggers!!

I normally use 2mm for decks and 1.5 for the superstructures,  I always strengthen between the deck frames  with ply were bollards are to be fitted before fitting the plasicard.
Hope this helps
