  1. That's great, thank you. I am in the UK so i will have to find a retailer of it or something similar over on these shores. Cheers for your help.
  2. Hi there, I'm new on here but have really got into modelling in the last few months and have successfully completed a 1:24 scale '05 Subaru Impreza (Monte Carlo spec) and a Mclaren MP4-25 (Lewis Hamilton). For Christmas my lovely partner bought me the Tamiya 1:24 scale '98 Toyota Corolla (Rally Catalunya - Carlos Sainz) among other cars. I have recently started work on it but wanted to add a touch more realism to this one. One aspect i wanted to change was the exhaust heat shielding on the underside. The instructions suggest painting it a flat aluminium colour, which is easy enough, but i thought about using aluminium foil to create a more realistic effect. My question is, actually i have two: Whats the best way of keeping it flat and moulding it to the underside and 2, what the best way to fix it in position as normal plastic - plastic glues won't stick metal to plastic. Many thanks in advance. Dan
