    These are still being used to this day. The crypt is now used as a backdrop for tavern talk podcasts and the a frame is out at Esker but that one is likely going to get burned up in 2017 to make room for actual village structures (see here Building A LARP Village | LarpCraft)

    If only the pink foam prop walls weren't so fragile... Really though, if one is going to invest that kind of time, making a flat with a 1/8" or thinner piece of luan for the skin is more durable. They both take up sooooo much storage space though.

    agreed. Or we skin pink foam in that spray plastic and back it with plywood. It's always a tossup between tents and structures. I'm going for a canvas structure this year and the rest I'm building out of the woods on site.

    If we are building on site, I'd stay away from the foam. I don't know that there is anything we can do to make it durable enough. If we are looking for long term props for indoor use, that might make them more resilient. Though by that time, we're probably further ahead with building wood skinned flats with a 1" x 1" or 1" x 2" frame and a thin ply skin on it.
