Lead foil rules

Really, plastic is not my thing, it is too soft you see. it is too thick for modelmaking. The angles are too soft.
Lead foil is my thing :)

So here I am, flattening some lead foil over a car bit (can't remember what's the name of the metal thing above the wheel) so that it gets its shape completely

Then I did that on some engine apertures
lead foil on some model parts
I strengthened (slightly) the whole with some CA glue and Duro, filled and then  sanded some too obvious crevices and in the end I have this: a "perfect" molding of the car bits after having been bend by a quite terrible blow.
