    I am beginning to worry about this hobby now.
    We have eyeshadow for weathering.
    Finger nail blocks for sanding.
    What's next ???

    Martin ,their handy in that you don't need to splash out on reams of wet and dry if your only after a wee bit , and you can always buff up your nails if you feel inclined πŸ˜‚

    Love your Cervia Tug, looking very realistic on the water, and if you ever get a cold day in Oz make sure you get out there and get some photos taken, so as I can see the steam which is not a problem here in the U/K as every other day is cold. Regards, Gary.

    Fine Detale Sander.

    Hi guys another little tip.

    If you have some old scalpel blades that are blunt and you normally replace them with new ones, how about gluing a small piece of fine sand paper or wet/dry paper on to them.
    Then trim to the shape of the blade.

    It then becomes a nice thin sander that will get into those little awkward places.(especially if the blade is a long pointed one)
