Default Tamiya Plastic as substrate supports?

Im also in the gunpla hobby (back in the day) Anyone come across this? http://www.modelwholesaleuk.com/cata...ducts_id=29680

I was thinking how safe it would be to use as substrate supports.

The link you posted doesn't seem to show anything specific, just a general view of the page (or at least its not showing up on my screen).

What are substrate supports?

substrate supports lets you bank up a hill or scape very high. Its something that the owner of the green machine uses in the UK.

Ahh I see. That sounds really useful. Any pictures of them other than the link above? I'm curious to know how they are shaped.

isn't PLA a sugar based plastic? I know my brother and some friends who have 3d printers print with it. you might want to check it's compatibility with being submersed in water.

and at that price it'd be cheaper to just use egg grate from home depot or lowes. you buy it at the light section as light diffusers.
