|Here is a great addition to your tool box; Model Masters Micro Shear
Sprue Cutter. These cutters are flat on one side making flush cutting possible.
Designed primarily for plastic I have also used mine to cut Photo Etch
railing to length, a no-no according to the instructions that come printed
on the rear of the card. With a little practice parts can be removed from
the sprue with little of no follow up filing needed.
|Since I began rigging my ships I have found it difficult to trim the
fine lines to length after they have been glued in place. I've used the
Sprue cutter described above with some success, but have been unable to
get in close and work between the lines. Well I've found a great pair of
scissors that will do just that. Squadron Tools 3-1/2" Curved Hobby scissors
are just what's needed to snip those fine lines away. The one drawback with
this tool is that the blades only come together at the tips, but that is
where you will be doing most of your cutting, so it's a minor concern. These
scissors are made from stainless steel and available at all well stocked
