Summer modelling tools


Summer is here and it's time to start collecting model making tools.

How better to paint 4mm scale figures than by supergluing their feet to a lolly stick? I've found that ones from Magnum ice lollys are the best offering a wider area for the feet to be stuck down.

Of course, the sticks don't last forever (NO, they don't) so it's wise to keep working on collecting plenty to tide yourself over the cold winter months.

I like your thinking. Especially in this current weather.

I always drill up a leg to insert a piece of 0.5 or 0.7mm brass wire to act as a location pin for fixing the people to the layout later so I have a small block of wood pre drilled with holes for standing people up via the wire when painting.
