I'm working up my new modeling room and have my old wooden workbench that I
made years ago. I just repainted it last night a nice semi gloss white. I
have 2 other counters on top of cabinets, a colored laminate, feels like
plastic and so far paint resistant though not scratch resistant.
Years ago I bought two largish, thin, white rectangular sheets at a train
show for putting on the workbench. They felt like some sort of plastic.
Paint stained them but you could cut on them without to much damage and
they at least protected whatever you were using to model on from
chemical/physical damage. I could even drop CA on it and if it fried before
i saw it I could get it off but bending the sheet or gentle scraping. They
survived over 10 years and except for the staining were in excellent
Somehow during the move, they disappeared. I am most distressed. So I need
to do something. These are not the cutting mats, I have one of those and
they weren't the same thing.
So if someone knows what I'm talking about or of you want to offer
suggestions as to what you use, let's hear it.
