Additional Metcalfe Platform tarmac sheets

Postby OtleySteamer » Mon Jan 16, 2017 8:19 am

Apologies if this has been coverd elsewhere.
I'm building the Metcalfe platform kit but want to make it slightly longer. I see that Metcalfe also sell M0056 Tarmacadam sheets separatley. Anyone know if these match the platfrom kit?

Thanks

They do match in terms of pattern, but they're printed on much thinner card. You might be able to get away with adding additional bracing though.
