Scale Racer added a topic in Model Building Questions and AnswersHeat shield techniqueHi 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.
