Learning Japanese,
I think I am learning Japanese
I really think so

It could be “turning” - and I could be really dating myself.

Peace.
You did :)

Thanks for the information.

I searched in Europe but didn‘t find an equivalent.
Looking for something like the Japanese ones, closed surface, high density, high pressure restitant, high handling restitance (to be much better than styrofoam/Styropor) and of course DF compatible size.

My experience with open surface foams like the one you ordered,Rabbit Burner, are not that good (maybe more emotional than rational based).

I already went to different construction markets and DIY Shop in Germany but did not find anything which suits me.

Maybe after all I should learn Japanese :roll: :lol:

These blocks look quite tempting...

(Un)luckily, I live in good old Europe and can not read the Japanese Language.... :(

If anyone from Europe is going to order some of these blocks, I would join.


Best regards

Have you tried sourcing some in Europe ?
We sourced some in the UK a little while back - posted in another thread.

They got many options of construction material and sizes, got about 12 for £20 (gets cheaper the more you get)
We were just seeing how useful they would be before committing to any more, can see using them to bulk out mountain builds but we have yet to make a decision if we need more.

Was reasonably impressed as they did the job I was after - link to flickr album

If we wanted more we would try to assess how many we need, what size (we chose 4"x4"x2" - the size of a CBS building block) then compare price against dice4hire's options (we think dice is cheaper).

The sight we used was https://www.efoam.co.uk/
and the foam type was 'high(firm)'.

Don't worry, I cannot really read Japanese, just some of it. Google translate is much better at Japanese than I am.

Decoration mostly. They use them to hold up shelves and the like, or to fill space. Lots of uses I guess.

they do not use them with DF, weird people. :D
their loss... :-)

thx...

I can order any of the colors they have available. Fifty black is the usual order, but I can order pretty much any combo.

If one wanted to get bricks of different colors, like 25 black and 25 brown or grey in one shipment would that work out ok? or does the vendor preship in lots of 50.
