Getting the right angles

I've probably mentioned these before, but some of the most useful tools I own are these cast iron angles bought from Squires tools.

Assembling the Dotti kit body parts, it's important to keep them at right angles and using these lumps of metal as supports holds things in place as well as keeping in the right place. An added refinement would be to use some magnets to hold the plastic against the angle, but the speed the glue dries, this isn't really necessary.

Incidentally, for joining these parts, I'm using Precision Paints Superweld, partly because it was handy on the shelf but also 'cos it works really well. I like the sped at which a model can go together this way.
