Does anyone know from what type of wood(if it’s wood) it’s made the commemorative wall-mounted presentation plaque ?
Also from where i can buy it? I want to build my own display case but i want to match the colour, texture and material/wood. Thanks in advance

I'm sorry, I have no idea. I was unaware of the premium subscription when I initially signed up for this build and when I did find out, because I wanted the plaque and display case, I called and was told there is no premium subscription, whoever the woman was I spoke to had no idea what plaque or case I was talking about. That ruffled my feathers Cursing . Really not pleased at this as I wanted the plaque and display case.

In May when I’m due to receive the display case, if I don’t like it, i can send it to you. I’m thinking to build my own display case that’s why I’m asking what type of wood they’ve used for the plaque

Its made of 16mm MDF, stained mahogany with a photo printed grain to the front. They have not bothered to stain the sides they are just left natural.
I would make a decent plaque out of a piece of solid mahogany or Sapele. It will be far better than Deagostini's attempt.

Why not just print my attached image on gloss photo paper, stick it to D/S tape, cut it out and stick it to the centre/front of your case base?

A good size is 110mm x 30mm.
