PVC tail armature.

So I bought a heat gun today.. "Delrin rod" was suggested to use as part of a tail armature, but I couldn't find any at the hardware store (the lady had no idea what it even was), and I'm impatient, I didn't want to wait for an order of it to come in from somewhere off the internet. So I bought some PVC. (dollah 50, yeah! the piece I got is twice as long as the armature I made)

The heat gun worked wonders for bending the plastic. I might experament more with different bases in the future, rather than using the elastic loop (so it doesn't swing too much) .. :3

Has anyone else had experience with a heat gun for making tails? or even making a tail armature out of PVC? I'd love to hear about it.

I still think I'm going to invest in "delrin rod" just to experament with, now that I have a heat gun. Has anyone else used it before as well?
