Thanks for posting that useful information about combining card and plasticard.
I have never thought of using the two materials together before.

Would card buildings last the test of time in a loft for example with high temperature changes. Bought a lot of plastic buildings thinking they wouldn't?

Yes they are fine. All the building on my old loft layout were Superquick and they never had a problem.
