Just when we think we have Martin Welberg's static application secrets figured out he surprises us with a product that just defies conventional thinking. This series of mats are so complex with the number of layers, the number of different materials and the technical tricks he must incorporate, that this mat definitely features the epitome of static accomplishments.
The ultra-thin vinyl backing of Martin Welberg mats appear nearly invisible when placed correctly. Being so thin they have no edge and lay perfectly flat and will not curl or pucker. Being vinyl, they will conform to extremely rugged terrain contours. By using the correct glues such as Tšk-E-Glue or Web Spray type adhesive, you can create an intricate 'patch-work' pattern which appears more natural and increases the surface area the mat covers. In some instances a normal hair-dryer can be used to help conform the mat to various contours.
The small perforations serve as a 'tooth' to allow more grip when gluing the mat surface. The perf also allows an easier method of tearing the mat with a more natural ragged edge.
Martin Welberg mats are hand-produced during every step of the process. NEVER will you find a mat that is duplicated exactly like the rest. Martin realizes that nature is random and seldom repeats. His mats are never "rubber stamped" as in most mass-manufactured brands. He uses a vast series of hand-cut stencil patterns specifically made for each style of mat that create different patterns and densities of all areas.
The photos use an O-Scale Accessory to demonstrate scale relationship. Martin Welberg products are recommended for all scale models and dioramas.
