    antenociti's workshop on line.
    Local shop that does art supplies or local RC car shop or better local scale railway shop...

    I also just bought a load of stuff from modelscenery.com which is rubber based instead. It's mad but pretty good (and flexible)

    Strength is fine, and it goes together with superglue brilliantly. I only got it yesterday, but there's a whole lot of uses that I have planned for it.
    It is a bit flexible, but better that than brittle, I guess...

    Plus if you start sticking it to itself, or to other stuff, it will be just fine

    I always use my local shop, well for the past 44 years anyway but not sure what their mail order service is like; they're just a few minutes walk away
