Iím restoring a 1960ís Corgi Batmobile and Iíve hit a snag, one of the rear fins on the car is badly worn so I want to restore it to match the other side.

Iíve never done anything like so I had a google and started using Milliput which worked great initially... except it didnít set (I used a 1:1 ratio).

Do you guys have any ideas or advice for how I could approach this?

Thanks in advance!

I've found that Milliput deteriorates over time if not stored carefully (I keep each part in separate zip lock bags).
Even so, it seems to weaken over time.
I've also heard that old shop stock can suffer the same problems, even if unopened.
Perhaps cut to shape plastic card?
