Trial to make a sundew when the glue is dry will see if it cuts to shape without knocking the small bits off. If this does not work will try soldering some bits together.

Test finished - OK for strength when dry ----  BUT as soon as you try to cut the small bits into shape most just ping off. 
So trying to bend them into shape is a no no - will try and solder some when I get time and see if that is strong enough.
The joys of scratch building -- just think its all for fun.

I agree with Haddock, 'he' looks just like the real 'Wallace'.
When do you start work for Aardman….?
Nice, very nice.

Well now started to model again - first some fixing of the models that have been damaged when packing things away.
Also decided to finish this model of Wallace and Gromit for the next club meeting, some more parts added and coat of pledge to add the decals on the car sides.
