Cardboard and glue ‑ White card about ‑1/32 in. thick (0'75mm) should be used. You can buy this at any art shop or handicraft place. It is in sheets about 20in. x 25in. and costs approximately 25p per sheet One sheet is ample for this model.
There are many suitable glues on the market but I use Britfix 66 balsa cement and their 77 polystyrene for the plastic card and spruce parts).
General note The whole business of making cardboard models has been covered in great detail by Geoffrey Deason in his 'Simple Cardboard Models' and readers are advised to buy a copy of this and read it.
