QUOTE (randolph @ 21 Apr 2008, 13:44) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I am contemplating using Sundeala Board for my layout. According to my local builders merchant it comes in the following types:

9mm Sundeala Board K-Internal 2440 x 1220mm
12mm Sundeala 'K' Quality 2440 x 1220mm
12mm Sundeala 'A' Quality 2440 x 1220mm

Can anyone advise me as to which type I should purchase.

Thanks R

As previous replies have noted Sundeala warps even in relatively good environmental conditions.

But an even bigger problem is finding a supplier that has got flat sheets in the first place. I would avoid a builders merchants where storgae conditions and handling are not really very good for this sort of material.

Many hobby shops sell it but be very particular about their condition when you buy them. Since they warp in one direction so easily you would think you cound persuade them to go back but it is not so!!
