Just wondering where my fellow Americans have been purchasing MDF for their terrain making needs. It seems to be ubiquitous overseas, but I can't seem to find any locally (at least not at the 1/8" or 1/4" thickness). People keep pointing me to the big box hardware stores, but the employees there look at me like I'm crazy. Suggestions?
@Bookawar - Home Depot is the place. Search online on the home depot website, enter your local store info and it will tell you (1) if it is in stock and (2) what aisle/section in which it is located. They usually have 2'x2' and 2'x4' sheets at 1/8", 1/4" and sometimes 1/2". They might even have 4'x8' sheets. Good Luck.

You see - by way funner - I thought that he may have actually found muffler bearings. Whenever I go into a Home Depot, I find things I never knew existed. Seriously - the last time I was there I spent $200 and I only went in for a light bulb.
American hardware stores are so much more fun than British ones.
I have been given some strange looks when I ask were I can find the LDF. The lighter version of MDF - I will find it some day!
I've always found it at Home Depot. Go to the Lumber section area and ask someone specifically from the lumber section where the MDF is. It's not going to be down the aisle with the big plywood stacks or anything. I'm in California and all the Home Depots here have it and they actually have it marked. Each HD employee is assigned to a particular section of the store, stop someone in Hardware and ask them about lighting and they won't know much, stop someone in lumber and ask them about MDF, and they'll point you to it.
