  10. Try Kingspan on the Spon Lane industrial estate , on the side of the Metro tracks, West Bromwich/ nearly oldbury. https://www.scoot.co.uk/England/West-Midlands/West-Bromwich/Kingspan-Environmental-T-A-Polmeric-Mouldings-Ltd-CHLG363.html See if they have a 'damaged' sheet for minimum cost..

  12. US mags are available from Tornado Books in Birmingham , in the same street as the old court buildings. You can also give Parabellum in the Jewellery Centre a try, unfortunately mainly wargaming, but paints and lots of US sourced items are there, IF you can get in!! LOL.... A couple of requests could well make them stock items.
