I like working in brass, it does what you want it to and it can be soldered as well.  The only thing you have to watch out is for is shorts especially if you are using split frame chassis.

The cars were a nasty range of weird plastic Chinese models, so the solution was to strip them down, de-flash them and then spray.  They still looked like toys, however, a spray of satin varnish and they look like real cars with the wax coating they give them before transit.
