Need modeling advice please . . .

I realize this is the *plastic* modeling thread but perhaps I might ask a metal modeling question? I drive a Halo 860 which has black stripes across the hood, roof, and trunk (see my avatar). I also have a 1/18 scale GT86 metal model in Halo - but no stripes. The real stripes are 5" wide at their widest which is .27" in 1/18 scale. I would like to add stripes to the model. What can I use for stripes that would be 1/4" wide and reasonably easy to work with? I thought maybe actual automotive black pin striping but is there any modeling alternatives? Thanks much!

Hobby Lobby or any decent hobby shop sells black decal material that would work well for this.

I would think that actual automotive pin stripes will be too thick for a model, as in it'll be too raised.

@StraightOuttaCanadaEh works with 1/18 models, so he might have a good suggestion for your stripes.

Yeah just decals and you'll have to eyeball them and cut them. Can use hobby tape to make a template first

New Lego kit I received as Father's Day present. X-Wing fighter, complete with functioning x-wings. The two photos with the red posts show the wing support that allows the wings to be either open or closed.

(Edit: I fixed the one decal that is sticking up later)

He's probably complaining about the design not allowing him to sit low enough in the ship.

Uncleanness, lazy pics. Just need the wipers on. Didn't fully "smash" down the wires, so the hood is slightly open. Also, disappointed in how the BSI gold made the left side headlight fog up.
