Footplate1947 is on a distinguished road

My take on this question as to which kits to use either card or plastic is dependent on if the lay out was to be built in an out side location such as loft or garage. Depending of course how well the building has been prepared for building the layout.
If nice and dry either card or plastic. If dampness in a problem in say an unlined shed then I would go for plastic.
I may be wrong as I very often am. John

Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

That is very sensible Footplate.
I have been told that if one scratchbuilders from card, then if one uses card from freezer food products, it has a coating to protect it against dampness.
