About the club

We are a group of people who enjoy the hobby of plastic model building. Our members interests range from Aircraft, Automobiles, Ships, Figures, Armour, to Sci Fi. We have all skill levels from beginners to some pretty talented modellers, but we mainly meet to share our work, ideas, tips and techniques, and talk about modelling in general.

Scribing tool.....

I want to share a tool new that may be new to some of us.
At a recent meeting, John introduced us to the plexiglass cutter. Works just as good or better than any scriber I have seen. Couple this with a straight edge for guidance and good to go. Speaking o...f straight edge, Steve F. showed us to his straight edge of choice back on Club Day; pieces of metal measuring tape. It is very flexible and cut at each end with an angle to get into hard to reach places.

I found my plexiglass cutter at Home Depot - $12.99. I bought a 1 meter tape there too, and cut it with side cutter plyers.

The blue steel parts ( the internal coil) are actually better, very flexible, can go around curves, like a fuselage maybe?
