      Cliff,

      I have saved the website.  Lots of other things besides the styrene sheet.

      These SEEM similar to the sheets I got from Plastruct a LONG time ago - at least the size sounds familiar.   Looks good, BUT I have seen instances of giant bubbles forming on some of my buildings during the summer heat.   It could be that I just didn't apply enough glue, but it could be something to look out for as well.    Note, I have NOT experienced any of the bubbling with the Precision Products sheets which seem quite a bit thicker.

      Thanks Bruce. I haven't been able to find Precision Products sheets, where do you get them? I like their large size.

       

      BTW, here's another dollhouse part supplier, with 1/2" scale furniture & etc.

      Cliff, apparently they are not called Precision Products (there was NO precision involved) any more...but check out Ozark Miniatures - I THINK this is them:  https://ozarkminiatures.com/collections/1-2-scale

      Bruce, I got the sheets today, and you were right: they're plastruct.

      I found the Plastruct stuff easier to use if you have to go around a curve, similar to my depot porch roof. It's thinner and more flexible than the Precision stuff. They both have their pluses and minuses. The Precision stuff can get a lot more brittle. Depending on what I'm building I use either/or.
