Ar, forget it. I will be going with stuff at hand - copper wire.

Still, if anyone has pics of rollcages, that would help a lot

I would say ditch the plastic idea, it isn't pliable enough.
What you want is soft metal, even the brass piping would do, as you need to bend so much of it!
Buy some good cutters and you are away.

I will try and post some pics tomorrow....

That's exactly what I am doing, quite literaly, I'm doing this right now using brass wire. And this will not be a very "thorough" rollcage, for the car is not competizione, it is evoluzione.

I'm using epoxy glue for this, but I'm beginning to wonder if that is a good idea. How does Loctite super attack work? And which to choose - liquid or gel?

Thanks,

I don't think epoxy really sets, it always stays tacky! It will be fine if it is sprayed over, so go for it!
I think that's what i used!
Is the car the 348 Evoluzione with the strange looking front?
I think I have some pics of that in my F40 book!

Post a pic of one if you can?

Everythin on my model is quite stock, the only difference are the racing decals (originally).

As for pictures, I have not been able to find any, so I use my imagination and improvise

Well, it's almost ready now.

Which colour should I paint it? Black? White? Grey (like rubber)? Maybe red?

Well, I thought about it and decided to go for white - black won't be as visible through the tiny 43 windows, and red - well, the car is red... But I have another hour to think before the epoxy settles

Actually, a lot of cars are silver inside, that might look good?

Actually, I wasn't even considering white until I started writing the post and I mentioned it just as opposition to black. But then it got me thinking, well, you know...

Here are two more questions:

1) What do you meake seatbelts of?

2) Should I add a rear wing (make it from scratch)?

Oh, and one more: how do you make chrome? I went to the hobby shop and the guy sold me this paint (Chrome Silver by Humbrol), and it turned out to be "exactly" the same as a Revell paint I have, which was, IIRC, "alluminium metallic". A big ARGH to him! So what do you use? I heard of gluing alu foil, but that's not the was I wasnt to go on a 43 scale model.

P.S. This question has nothing to do with the 348 I'm working on
