I've just given up with plasticard. Poured boiling water on it and left in bowl for 3 minutes. Wrapped it around a cigar tube to get desired circular shape, and held it firmly in place with elastic bands.
Removed hours later. It immediately reverted to its flat shape and snapped in two. This has happened twice.
Martin and Mike, thanks both for your invaluable advice. So much for the YouTube vid extolling the virtues of boiling H20.
Will get there in the end with my VW thundersaloon, but I'm in no hurry. Can't paint it yet anyway. Awoken to heavy rain again today so, with such a damp atmo, I'll spend the day trying to justify my existence in other ways.
