  1. I've binned two pair of Tamiya nippers. the box joint hits fingers when it's operated. these were around 30$ US, so not cheap to me. I have another pair now 13$ that have gone dull in about 3 months only cutting styrene. best ones are from Xuron in my opinion for about 15$ and last a couple of years. all of these were dedicated styrene cutters; I have wire & rod dedicated cutting tools. I would like to try some single blade nippers at some point. Godhand ??? I think is the brand the wargamers use. note; http://armorama.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=265666

  7. can never be enough modelers making videos for me; go for it.
  8. not meant to sidetrack, but to mirror: figure painting with so much highlighting & dark accents it begins to pass realism into artificial.
  9. https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B084PZXYYK/ref=atv_hover_title just started to watch this series. now know where MiniArt derives inspiration!
  10. great discovery; thanks for posting.
  11. excellent youtube channel. He is very straightforward and often points out his own foibles. have been subscribed for about a year and always save his videos to my YouTube Library for reference. thanks for posting.
  12. and then there is the scales of wargamers. there are quite a few companies making bits which could be used if they were not so ill proportioned. https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=61108.0
  13. MiniArt kits are fantastic in their subject matter & execution. refreshing to hear a realistic time frame for completing a good model! what I have found in building a few miniart kits: often there are parts which will be unused because their assignment is for a variant. a service to their own production & modelers' sanity would be to replace multi-gated straight castings with a variety of brass wire sizes.
  14. it can become overwhelming
  15. miniart? surprised the feet & beaks aren't on a separate sprue.
