The Tools of Scale Model Building

3 min read

Starting in a few days time, I will be commencing a multi-part, step by step build of Toys and Joys pattern #130, The New Excavator. This is a challenging build but if you are up for the challenge, hopefully this video will provide you with all the information you need to make your own version of this model. So on this week’s show, I thought I would show some of the little extra tools that I like to use while working on a scale model that makes the build a little easier. While these items are not necessary for a model build, that are definitely a great help.
