Clay modelling is great, if you know how to work it, without the right tools
and skills you will be better of doing a hard / foam model.

... says CLAYman...

Clay modelling is not hard, especially with the wax-like modelling clays. When working with it, I mostly use the heat from my hands, and a large kitchen knife...

We must be talking about different things here, to form something that looks ok with hobby plasticine is not hard.
But to make an original with class A surfaces using "car-clay" is something else.
Automotive clay modeller by trade.

No, it will never be a hard material, but for making an original, to be moulded off, it is plenty strong for the purpose.

And it is easy to work with.
