The edges are smooth and hard and can be shaped. It is a stable material, easy to work with, and has a consistent texture. MDF comes in natural colors (brown) or dyed black. The main drawbacks of this material are that it is very heavy weight and produces a great deal of fine sawdust when it is cut or sanded. These are made from wood of varying thickness, wooden strips, shavings, or fibers of various kinds of wood (ill. 3-20). They are mostly used to make model bases. When building a model, its total weight must be considered as well as its stability.

Double-sided films are suitable for laminating paper (photographic paper, photo board, or thick computer print paper for custom designs) to a backing material, such as polystyrene or acrylic sheeting, as well as for gluing together sheet metal, polystyrene, and acrylics. Before application, make sure the material is not porous; its surface should be smooth and free of all foreign particles, dust, and oils. The benefit of using films is that they can fully seal together large sections of material quickly and without waiting time, and they will not cause papers to deform.

The surfaces can be painted or sprayed with any type of water-soluble paint: tempera, emulsions, or acrylics. If synthetic polymer enamel or lacquer is used, the surface must be coated in advance with waterbased filler and then sanded. With Rohacell, the edges are somewhat translucent, which can become a problem when photographing the model. Rigid foam boards are usually inexpensive and available in building supply stores, where they are sold for use as roof and wall insulation. Depending on the manufacturer, they come in various colors and consistencies.
