May 2017 Issue pierced-steel planking
Posted by BillCRCE on Monday, April 03, 2017 10:19 AM

in the article on page 30 (Power up a P-51) there is a reference on page 34 to pierced-steel planking which i have been trying to find.  I checked Squadron's web site but have not located the product from Custom Dioramics (no. CD48559).  Looking in the planking in 1:32 or 1:48.  Any ideas wherre to find it?

This one. Its not in stock at the moment, but keep checking.

It may be your search term, try useing PSP or Marsden matting. That CD item is a complete base. Eduard has PE PSP in 48th and Brengun and flightpath have it in 32nd.

You could try eBay, too, if you don't get it from Squadron (it's showing as "in stock soon" right now).  I got mine off Ebay, for less than retail, even with shipping. I think I searched on "marston mat" or "psp", I don't recall, offhand, but I do know that it only took a search or two.

I got one from Squadron a while back. It was OOS but they sent it out about a week later. I don't think it stays on the shelf for long. Makes a real nice base.

I keep hitting "escape", but I'm still here.

It's spelled "Marston", not "Marsden", however that's a common term and some of the vendors seem to spell it wrong which just makes the search harder.

I did just get the Eduard one but it is just to small and to expensive to make a nice diorama out of.  I may try photocoping and then work with that but still looking.

You could try using the Eduard piece as a template, too, and then making more by casting them.
