  1. Tool Stand EBMA Hobby & Craft We all have a plethora of tools bought over the years and storing them can be pain at times, even more so for the modellers who dont have a dedicated area to work in. There are lots of brands on the market, and many of them use MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) or Perspex that is laser cut to shape and can be self-assembled, which is great for keeping shipping costs to a minimum. EBMA have created their own line of racks, drawers and tool storage etc made from MDF that are pre-cut ready for assembly. This one is design
  2. Hello, my name is Thanos. I am new to scale modeling, currently I am building a Kinetic F 16 (1/48) and a couple of Eduard Spitfires (1/72). I have made a relatively good investment buing some tools, like a set of tweezers, a H&S Ultra (2 in 1) airbrush, a compressor, a knife with No11 blade and a razor saw. Also I bought some brushes (10/0, 3/0, 2/0, 2, 4 round brushes + an old 12 round Da Vinci and No 3/8, 4, 8, 10 flat brushes). For gluing I am using Mr. Cement S, but I have problems due to its fast evaporation. For gap's filling I bought an AK grey putty and Mr Surfacer 1200.
  3. Over the last few years I've made a few modelling tools and I thought I would show them off and ask if anyone else has made or re-purposed something that they use. Sometimes I make things to help with modelling because I to damn tight. Sometimes it's because I can't find what I need. But mostly it's because I like making stuff, and giving the grey matter a bit of a work out. Circle Cutter Because I couldn't find a circle cutter that would cut circles smaller than 10mm, I made this. It can cut circles down to 3mm Diameter. It's by far my most used, home-ma
  4. After several attempts at locating information that I need, I determined that maybe this has never been done before and should possible have it's own forum partition. I will get to the skinny of my request. Basically, what should a beginning modeller have in their workstation if starting from scratch, before they ever open their first kit and begin building? I.e. For modern warplanes, a beginner should have airbrush, compressor, a list of paint codes to have for, say US Navy aircraft, as well as paints that are used for non-FS painting, but will be used often. Basically the list of
  5. Hey guys, I am very very new to this site. I am an American veteran, now living in the Philippines. I have had an extremely hard time finding the paints and tools that I need to reenter model building, after a VERY LONG gap. My last build was in the very early 1990's, and I am hoping to get back into the game, so to speak. As I said, living here is not the best place if you need to find paints, tools and kits. I have resorted to using Ebay for most of my buys so far, and it just so happened that I sent a question to a seller located in Hong Kong, with more than 12,000 feedbacks. I was asking a
  6. Help.......... I need a masterclass with pictures if possible on creating wood effects for rifles and tool handles and shafts. I normally use enamel paints but would like to learn to use different media if need be thanks in advance scott
  7. Hey guys! I don't know if it's okay to post this video here, but if it's not please let me know. I'm just starting a YouTube channel and in this video I would like to talk about some basic tools and items I'm using at the moment with scale models or what would you need in order to start the hobby. And I would love to get some feedback! I know the video is not top notch and maybe I'm mumbling a little bit, but that's a start.
  8. Modelling Tools Revell Which modeller can not say they need tools, and who is not always looking for better and different tools to help us out? Here Revell bring us three different tool sets under their brand name. Tweezers This pack contains 3 sets of pretty standard tweezers. Two standard positive pressure sets, one with angled ends. Also included is one set of negative pressure tweezers (ie you have to pinch to let the part go). These are all fairly standard items and I would be as bold as to say there are better items available on the market. There is nothing wrong with them though
  9. Having recently finished a TSR2 and now getting close to the same problem with an Airfix Lightning F2, what do you guys use to support tailplanes that have a wobbly fix while the cement sets? I'm looking for something other than pots, bits of sprue etc and already have my trusted Berna clamps which are good, but don't help measure the angle of the dangle... Suggestions?
  10. For those looking, I thought this was quite a reasonable price, taking your chance with customs, but don't see it an issue at that value! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tamiya-74024-Thin-Blade-Modeling-Razor-Saw-Craft-Tool-Plastic-Model-Blades-NIP-/350821790432?pt=UK_ToysGames_ModelKits_ModelKits_JN&hash=item51ae9bb2e0
  11. Cam across these, got one ordered to see the quality. The handle might be suitable for the etch saw blades I have if nothing else. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GJQG04-MANWAH-Hobby-Razor-Saw-Handy-Craft-Saw-Model-Tools-NEW-/111351648274?pt=UK_ToysGames_ModelKits_ModelKits_JN&hash=item19ed135012
  12. I am envious of the dentists array of gadgets. Especially their polishing gizmo. I bought GMC DEC003AC 135 Multi Function Rotary Tool and thought that with the extension it should work a treat. Just the soft polishing disk acted like a grinder. I need something small and lightweight for drilling 1/48 and especially for polishing out scribing mistakes.I have looked at the Dremel but is seems like an expensive version of what I have.
  13. Hi all, I'm a complete novice just trying to get my kit together before embarking on some (hopefully) great modelling journeys. I've an airbrush which I haven't yet used, just a bargain basement thing from eBay (didn't see the point in splashing out straight away, I can always expand at a later date). The one thing I feel the need to purchase is a respirator or mask of some sort; my modelling will be taking place in the garage and there are no windows and with winter almost here, I'll be keeping the door shut! Can anybody recommend a mask or respirator? It doesn't need to be too flashy and t
  14. Hi All Im looking for cheap starter warhammer or scale model tool kits any one all surgestions greatfully received, Thanks.
