Re: Modeling a Well Used Gon


I saved the last pull off lid from a 3lb (well 39oz) coffee can. It seems to
be a relatively tough but thin material that might do well for this purpose
and "patch panels" etc. I think they're also on cocktail nuts but the last I
got had a pattern on it making it useless.

Have you ever thought about using something like aluminium pie pans
or the like for representing the side panels?
I came across some nice big pans at the grocery store - they are to
put at the bottom of the oven to catch the drips.
Fairly cheap, and I think you could add these and deform them after
installation if they were attached using epoxy or such.

Certainly something worth a try, although would be more difficult to
do on an older gon that is riveted vs welded construction.
