Hello all!  We just returned from the Amhearst Railroad Hobby show in Springfield, MA over the weekend.  It was great to see so many of our regular customers who have been using Gatorfoam for years, (and years!).  Many thanks to all who came by and say hello.  It came to our attention that many of our customers are recommending GF to their friends and model club members...Thank You!  Some folks were surprised there are 3 colors of GF, White, Black and Natural.  The White is by far the most popular but Black is a strong second.  All colors have the same great working properties of cutting, painting and gluing.  It bears repeating here if you need some tech assistance or have any questions conserning modeling with Gatorfoam, regardless of where you purchased it, we're here to help.  There are certainly other outlets to purchase your GF but few have our 40+ years experience using it!  Drop us an e-mail and send pix of your Gatorfoam projects to us at [email protected]  Thanks and Happy Modeling!   ​

Gatorfoam is a unique, strong, laminated panel with a core of extruded polystyrene and a face made of resin impregnated wood fiber veneer commonly known as Luxell.  It is an interior, exterior panel, great for structural and all model usage.  It can be cut with a variety of woodworking tools, Xacto or matt knife.  It accepts all types of paints, stains and adhesives.  It comes in
various thicknesses in 4 x 8 and
5 x 10 foot sheets.

When using outdoors care must be taken to protect the edges against ultraviolet light.  Gatorfoam is the perfect choice for module building and all around modeling techniques.

Gatorfoam is a registered product of 3A Composites, USA.

 Greetings and welcome to Modeling with Gatorfoam.  I've visited a few blogs on using Gatorfoam for modeling and still surprised at the number of folks still not sure of Gatorfoam and all its great uses.  Several people are hesitant to contact me for tech info!  PLEASE...that's why I'm here!  E-mail me or call me with your questions and I'll be VERY happy to answer them.  Interested in using Gatorfoam as a sub-roadbed?  That's the subject of the "Gatorfoam Project of the Month"(Year?).  We go into detail about using GF as your sub-roadbed.  Take a minute and check it out.  Also, I'd like to thank Art Fahie and the gang at Bar Mills models for plugging Gatorfoam in their Cundy Village video.  Thanks guys! 
Remember we're here to provide you with any "Gator-Aid" you need.   Stay tuned and Thanks!  Dave ​​​​​​​​​​​​​
