As you know you don’t need to press all the way through styrene as you do need to with paper for example. You can just score the piece you want to remove and then bend it back and forth a few times until it snaps off. So to create the angled shielding on the squad side of the car, I “cut” a few stripes to width and then scored at the bend line. Then gently bent the piece to an angle. When superglued into place these fragile details become rigid.

And so after some problem solving happy fun time, I present Alice the armored train. Primed and ready to graduate from the workbench to the painting table. I still have the 6 pound gun crew to convert.

Take care,

Cheers!
