Hey all, I didn't see this posted anywhere and thought I would make a quick comment about the new Urban Roads. They are 6" wide, and 10' long. I know I couldn't find anywhere on the web the dimenson for how wide they were before I purchased them. The roads themselves seem to be very durable, and fit perfect with my CoD modular table I am constructing.

What material are they made of ?

I'd hazard a guess as vinyl.

Does anyone know if it could be cut and glued to a base?

I couldn't find the exact material listed on the packaging, but like the above poster said, it feels like it is a hard vinyl. As far as cutting the road up to mount on boards, that would be very easy, I am contemplating whether or not to do it for mine. There is a guide on the reverse side of the packaging that gives templates for cutting the road if you wanted to use angled sections.

How thick are they?

From what I saw this weekend in the GW store they are about 1 or 2 mm thick.

They are 2mm thick, though there is not really an issue with them tearing due to the material they are made out of, they are quite flexible. I am quite pleased with their look and feel.

It is easy to lay down. I was worried about it keeping the curl but that wasn't the case.

You have to roll it backwards to get it to uncurl properly. Or at least they did for the pack they broke open for the mega battle yesterday at my local GW.

They are made from vinyl(whatever that is, im assuming its not the same stuff they make records out of) if I remember correctly.

Okay heres the dumb question of the day!
When you say '10' is this Inches or feet?

Inches i assume.

15-10-2007, 05:54
Feet - 10 inches would be very poor value!

I think these will be great for gluing to permanent boards, but I'm dubious about how long they'll stay flat if they're constantly rolled and unrolled

I think you get a roll thats 6 inches across and 10 feet long. Letting you cut it up as needed.

ok thanks for clearing that up.

Ah as I though, Cheers for that.

I'd be interested in buying it for my CoD Terrian that I am working on.
