Wow! A bit big for a model, but where do you draw the line? Real cars can be classed as models - a 1/10 size car with a petrol engine is still a model, a full size car is a model with more details!

The Thunderbird Four Roly made quite a hit at the time. I wonder if it still exists. Much more original than another Del Boy Van.

Thanks! As I've said, the main problem I have is getting the metal...
Baked bean tins arent good, there corrugated, and warps like hell when I try to make it flat/straight. I found some better beer cans, that are flat, but still very thin. Fray Bentos, tuna and tomato puree cans are perfect, but only for small parts like the wings, since the metal from them is small.

I started making a 2cv a while back, but I only have the chassis for now, I dont have any good metal! Any of you know what type of metal I can easily buy at tin thickness that can be soldered and glued with hot glue? I cant seem to solder the tins very well.

can old only think of the scrap yardyard in england nowadays . all metals in the ground next to the skip for recycling must be some odd tin . we have thrown away a few biscuit tins and sweet tins this xmas quality street / celebrations etc. they would probably be good for you.
heres what we have at hand

Not sure if they woukld be good for soldering. Beer cans will be alrught nfor this actually, just flimsy.

We may have a few of those tins I'll check :)

Hehe I didnt get it in the house, too cold fr beer, I had to go in the shed, looking in the recycling bin bag! Luckily they were on the top!

Here is the beginning of the nose. Still needs a load mre work, needs to be steeper than that, then comes the hard bit, when I put the light pods in!

That nose was crap. The one I done after that was too...

I'm happy with the third one though!

I could put filler on the nose, but then it wont be the same... The real car has loads of small detns on the front of the nose, and I still like the idea of this being my 2nd piece of metal I shaped with a hammer (I'm talking about 2 way shaping!), and dont want to "cover my work" to make it look better lol

I'll probably get the nose floor done tonight, and maybe even fit the front wheels (already made them)
