  2. Yes, I bet we could double the list when one thinks of stuff we have acquireed over the years like, clamps, pegs, pot stands, glass bowls for decals, scribing tools metal rullers, scribong templates, lead wieights for tall sitters, books and refernce materials, table tips, paint holders, PE, Resin seats and corrective bits, spare decals and not forgetting the STASH My freind in the USA though building scale models was a cheap hobby...HAH
  3. Of course one can get by with the barest of items. I wrote this out as I recalled what I recentlt put together for my 28 year son after a visit and he picked up a kit for the forst time in 15 years. I was not counting cost when I devleved into my supplies to get him going. The list os not ment to put anyone off, just a reflection of what is on a lot of work benches after a couple of years. It is onteresting to see what we think and have on our work bench
