I have cut a few of the 8x4x2 foam bricks into smaller sizes... (no wedges yet, afraid the thin part will crumble) ... and they cut nice and clean with a thin "SHARP" blade. I made a few sizes to mix things up, 4x4x2, 4x6x2 and 4x2x2. I will be cutting a few more soon, but want to use them a little more to see how few need cutting. I'm considering another bunch of them once my play-room gets closer to usable.

Are the foam blocks still being produced Douglas? Possibly next year.
Hmmm, maybe I should do it sooner than later, I could see foam being outlawed in the future.
Not right now though. ;)
There are 197 in stock right now. I just checked.

Those catacomb pics are awesome. If I get more resin it will be catacombs.

So now i have to ask... those with the Japanese foam blocks... how difficult would it be to cut some of them diagonally into ramps or cut in half for half high levels?

Would that achieve similar functionality, particularly with the resin sets, that we see here with the posts and trays?
I do not know about hot wire cutting but I think it could be done. The foam blocks are very dense.

So... just guessing... 4 or 5 catacombs 1 sets and 3 of catacombs 2?
Well, I have Four Cat 1's, Four Cat 2's, and Four 6" Cat Walls
I don't recall exactly how much I used here (most of it tho).

I went a little nuts in December. :?

That looks amazing - realllllly nicely done!

I would also be very interested to know how many catacomb sets were involved. You've got me about a hair's breadth away from blatantly imitating your riser system.

Catacombs are a particularly great fit for this system! My brain finds the multi-tiered, sloping build for Catacombs much more "realistic" than a purely horizontal one. Nice job!
