Has anyone tried Polymorph mouldable plastic to make bits for cars ?
Im going to use it to make strengtheners for 1/24 kit conversions, for which it should be perfect ...
any input appreciated from all you scratch builders out there.

heres a pdf describing what it is and what it can do

Looks interesting for making car bodies, where do you get it from?
You can get it cheaper off EBay than that, I just bought 100 grammes to experiment with for £3.40 including postage, it gets less per gramme the more you buy.

Mine arrived earlier in the week, I'm going to try making an HO bodyshell from it over the weekend.

Julian - how did you get on?

Pretty well, after a bit of experimentation I made a replica in Polymorph hard plastic of a Lexan Wizzard body, you need to make the Polymorph, roll it out to about 1mm thick (like rolling pastry) and then mould it with your fingers to the inside of the lexan body, it can be painted, but the body needs testing because if the Polymorph gets warm enough it will go flexible again.

I don't think you could make a resin mould from it because the resin gets hot as it sets.
But I do think it can be used to make a body, you just need a mould to work from.
