Hi gang, been away a while.
I'm modding/ improving a boxed kit fire truck.
I'm going by closeups from my cell phone cam pics of the real truck.
I found myself wondering how I was going to mimic the aluminum under the door
that has a pattern of 'lines' across it that form series of tiny diamonds. Life-size, it's small.
My wife is a smoker. I went past the dining table this morning and looked at the pack
and the lightbulb went on.
Sure enough, the foil has the exact pattern in miniature.
Under the magnifying glass it looks like what I'm seeing in the photos.
The scale is perfect, as is the amount of sheen.
Thought I'd pass in along. Sometimes, it helps to be resourceful (and lucky).
