Rearview Mirrors & Width Indicators on Scale Model Vehicles:
The current model plastic formulas are somewhat brittle especially when molded in their smaller forms such as the outside rearview mirror stalks and the width indicators offered today on many scale model vehicles.
However, it is somewhat amazing just how flexible, strong, resilient and “plastic”* the Evergreen formulated material seems to be. This is especially true of the small diameter plastic rad they offer. So, given its’ ability to “spring back” . . . I routinely replace the outside rearview mirror stalks and the width indicators on all my vehicle models with the Evergreen material.
*In this case the word plastic is used to mean; “malleable, moldable, flexible & resilient”. Concrete, iron and steel are all plastic in this sense of the word.
(The gray Plastruct material does not work at all in this application as it too is still extremely brittle. I cannot speak to the newer white Plastruct material but it appears similar to the Evergreen product,)
