Now that I know roughly what I am trying to achieve I am just making a paper mock up to show roughly how it will look.
As you can see it is a very rough sketch of how the spiral will look.
This is the spiral cut out and pulled out. I like the aesthetics of this however it does need to have another twirl in order to look more alike to my hero model. I now plan to investigate how much 2mm acrylic can be bent which will determine whether this is an achievable model.
