Adventures in Blue Board and Foamcore

     This is a listing of the posts covering our projects built in Blue Board and Foamcore. It occurred to me that they appear in the blog in reverse order as you scroll down and my sometimes creative titles might not be clear to someone scrolling through the list of postings. A few of these are still "Works in Progress" and I will add to/update this list as time goes by.
     While anyone can cut foamcore with a matte knife I have found that making precise cuts in blueboard requires a special tool. My weapon of choice is the Proxxon Thermocut 115E; which I affectionately refer to as "Proxxie".  This tool functions as a table-saw and jigsaw would for woodworking allowing very clean and repeatable cuts. I find it invaluable.



The Island of Pinatella
It started with a tiny starfort
Which expanded into an island
Where I scratchbuilt everything
Including the town

  1. That looks really good! Have you tried using foam core with designs already on it? Check out this they do custom prints so you can get some intricate designs. I feel like getting some rivets printed on to the ship hull would look awesome.
