modelers...any ideas for this please


Sr Member

hey guys , im making this replica bttf delorean , need some ideas for the slim band as arrowed

for a guide to the side that whole strip with the mesh is 9mm ish wide , i have the mesh and im using 1.6mm wire for the bars , its just those small parts im struggling with

best idea i can think of is a cut up soda can :confused
Is this a model or a full size replica? If full size aluminum can be bought in strips that would probably be the right size, or cut as needed.

For a model I'd use chrome tape.
right ive found something...the thin metal foil dishes that pies and take aways sometimes come in

easy to cut and bend but strong enough to hold its shape
