    This is a fantastic article and is something that is usually left out of the typical modeler's education. The biggest problem with handling our materials is making them do what we want them to do and not letting the materials dictate what they'll do. By knowing your materials well, you become the master. Your procedures become way more predictable and more successful. Thanks Guido for finding this.

    Hey, no problem guys... Thanks!.. I found that article while looking for a tutorial on bending styrene Plastic and more tube headers.... So far, no luck. Guess I'll have to go at it on my own....

    Is this the sort of bend your after,on the exhaust.
    I used styrene Plastic and more tube and heated it slightly then used a small tube bender and very slowly applied pressure,both bends turned out OK with no kinks

    Thanks Oz! I'll be using 5/32" (.156 inch) tubing to form some zoomies for a "T" build I'm working on... I was also thinking about modifying a set of big drag headers and then drill out the pipes. I'll work on those tonight. Love the color on that Deuce!! Show us more pictures please... Thanks!
