3Wire Design 1:48 Display Bases S0480601
WWII, Marsden Matting (Small)
9" x 12" Pierced Steel Planking (PSP) or "Marsden Matting" section for displaying 1:48 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.
The 3Wire Design 1:48 Display Base range presents highly-detailed flight-deck and tarmac panels for enhancing the realism of your 1:48 scale model aircraft collection. Authentic carrier deck or airbase markings are printed in outstanding detail and clarity directly onto the thick styrene panels. Get your models off the shelf and watch them snap into life as soon as you set them down on these ultra-realistic display bases.

- 0.060" (1.5mm) thick styrene panels.
- Highly-detailed, accurate markings in 1:48 scale.
