hi, great project!
how much does the finished product weigh?

I like the concept, I however would like to have a little more sharper angles on the corrigations for a project I want to do, but make skills at the design level prevent me from pursuing this currently, I want to make walls for a 1-48 scale aircraft revetment. Any chance that you could take a look at an aircraft revetment from the Vietnam era and offer up a die set that would work, for something like that, any consideration would be appreciated

Would this work with the aluminum from a soda can?

Yes :) took some time to get a can and some pictures... works well with thin cans... see second (new) picture of this thing.

Do you think it would work for 1:150 scale or would it be best to redesign some parts if shrinking that small?

Puuh... good question. You can try the small one first (big one is definitly too large) and see how it would look... the small one was supposed to be used for 15mm scale (1:100)..
If it is too big try scaling everything down by 10-20%... Never testing if the mechanics work with a scaled down version though...

what thickness material do you use? I assume alluminium?

yes. Cheapest way would be to save the alluminium boxes when you order lasagne or other noodle dishes.. sturdy enough for modelling and also already paid for...
Other possible way would be from any kind of tube that is made from this material (e.g. mustard).,but this might be to thick to work it through the tool...

PS (edit): for the small version the aluminium tubing material would be to stiff...

Very clever idea well done!!
