David, here’re some pictures showing dolling a circle or tube (cone next up). It really is easy.
Just remember, if you use a knife handle REMOVE THE BLADE before using it as a roller. Depending on how large the piece is or how much it needs to be curved will help you determine how large a diameter rounded tool you will need to use.

1. Knife for rolling, the piece to be rolled, and the foam mousepad.
2. The piece place face down on the mousepad with the knife handle for rolling/pressing.
3. Start sliding the handle back and forth across the piece pressing gently. The piece will start to curve.
4. Still being gentle, increase the pressure on the knife handle a little at a time as you continue to slide it back and forth.
5. Eventually you will achieve the required curving of the piece to make glueing and fitting easier and neater.

David, here’s how I do conical forms. Very similar to the circles or tubes, but you need to pivot the tool while using it. Again, if you use a knife, remove the blade first.

1. Tool, piece to be formed and foam mousepad.
2. Model piece face down on mousepad.
3. Tool being slid and pressed over model piece. Note it needs to be pivoted so the inner roll is smaller and outer roll larger.
4. Slowly and carefully increase the pressure of the tool so the piece curves more. Maintain a pivot point.
5. Eventually you’ll get a very curved piece to help glue into final shape.

For the really small thruster nozzles on the Gemini Rescue Vehicle, I started with the X-Acto handle just to get the curve going, then switched to a finishing nail with its small diameter to get a really tight roll.

Hope this helps. Others may have their own input oh how they do II.

Good tutorial, Joe, and your DH-2 and Pfalz D.III(?) are terrific.

Thanks, Don. The process/concept is simple enough but I never thought of it until someone on here described it. It’s a lifesaver.

The DH-2 and Pfalz were fun to do. Hope I can do as well on the Burgess-Dunne.

Aside from knife handles, you can also use various diameters of brass tubing and knitting needles. Sometimes you need to roll a smaller cylinder than an X-acto knife handle will allow.

Brilliant!! GREAT tutorial--and it works the first time I tried it, so quick learning curve. I'll need to get my stable of different diameter tools stocked!! Outstanding, jagolden01. Thank you

Wanted to show the benefits of your tutorial. This is the Delta 7 Friendship Seven Atlas-Mercury. MUCH easier and MUCH happier with my results!
