WoodMarvels.com has decided to no longer sell any pre-cut models using MDF board. The material isn’t strong enough for much of any load, once wet it becomes utterly useless and to put insult to injury, it isn’t a material that lasts very long. Luckily, just about everybody who bought a physical model, decided on the plywood option. Plywood is strong, water resistant and has an extremely long shelf-life compared to other materials available to us. We want to only sell models that will last a long time with as little of an environmental footprint as possible. So far, plywood does the job rather well.
Although plywood costs about 10-15% more than MDF, we believe the added value brought by this stronger material more than makes-up for it.
