Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series HD1009
WWII, Marsden Matting
11" x 8.5" Pierced Steel Planking (PSP) or "Marsden Matting" section for displaying 1:72 Scale WWII Aircraft.
Marsden Matting was extensively used during World War II by Seabees (Construction Battalions) and other front line construction personnel to build runways and other readily usable surfaces over all kinds of terrain in the Pacific Theater of Operations. It consisted of steel strips with holes punched through it in rows and a formation of U-shaped channels between the holes. Hooks were formed along one long edge and slots along the other long edge so that they could be connected to each other. The short edges were straight cut with no holes or hooks. To achieve lengthwise interlocking, the mats were laid in a staggered pattern.
