Noy's Miniatures 1/72 PSP/Marston Matting

The latest offering from the Noy's Miniatures range: Perforated Steel Planking (PSP) or Marston Mat (also misspelled as Marsden Matting), which was widely used in WWII, Korea and Vietnam to create runways, taxiways and hardstands over various types of terrains. They were commonly used in sandy areas or where the ground could get waterlogged. This particular one appears to be over an area that could get muddy.


These are offered in the popular 1/144, 1/72, 1/48 & 1/32 scales.

What you see in this review is the 1/72 mat. As you notice, it is plenty large for a single engine fighter and can also be used for most twin engine types.


These are a great idea and apparently sell quite well. They are a superb way to show off your model either at home or as a setting in a show.
