Thanks for the kind words people.
All the foil is kitchen aluminium foil with microscale metal foil adhesive.
We build all colours, each month we have a theme and February is Valentine's so pink &/or red cars.

Very nice Cad. I have a good idea of what it takes to foil something like this having done the Hudson but adding a step too the process with micro adhesive would drive me batty. Kudos to you!

In the '50s, designers believed in "more is better" and chrome is a prime example. That '59 Caddy was the icon of American taste that year, but in '60 we saw the start of "less is more." Matter of changing tastes and keeping things fresh. Excellent work all round!

Once again thank you for all the nice comments guys.
About the foil, it isn't any more difficult than BMF just different, doesn't mold to small bits as well but it is less fiddly. Give it a whirl the adhesive is inexpensive, just use the cheapest thinnest dollar store foil you can find and very sharp blades.
