The least posh of modelling materials
Yesterday I showed you my mock-up building for BRM's Runcorn Salt Works project, which prompted the comment "Better start hoarding cereal packets - something tells me that their days are numbered..."
I thought everyone already hoarded cereal packets?
I've a stash of this useful cardboard stuck behind some drawers and every so often it has to be replenished because I've hacked through a few boxes for some project or other.
One thing I have found is that all cereal boxes are not the same. The big Kellogg's cornflake ones are especially handy. One was just big enough for my mockup building.
Big-name cereals seem to come in better boxes too. The Weetabix Crunchy Bran is delicious and housed in really top-quality cardboard. I'd happily use this for real modelling as it's especially stout.
Does anyone else have a favourite to be saved from the breakfast table?
