I want to share my try with damaged fuel/oil drum (or barrel) from aluminium foil in 1/35. I'm sure many people know this method, this is my way to make it

Hi! I just completed watching your video on making a 1/35th scale oil drum - very intense! But I have 2 questions, and one of the questions was maybe answered in the comments section of your video: you say you use kitchen-grade aluminum foil, but what with all the handling of the drum in your video, I have to believe that that material is thicker than the regular aluminum foil, and maybe even thicker than what is called "heavy-duty" foil. Do you know what thickness that foil is that you used?

My second question is about the black ink pen you use in the initial drawing of the drum: who made the pen, and what width is it? I really like ink pens, especially pens that have a good flow of ink.

Thanks!
