Martin Oostrom I needed to add a location for this event. I know a bloke who lives in this town, but I didn't want to put his address here. I feared there would be hundreds of ScaleNuts at his front door :D
So I took a random company's address.

Peter Hardy Well, it is certainly an impressive looking train. Pity it's a piece of shit Kenworth. I'm a Volvo fan myself. The Star we are going to build is a mid nineties Constellation by the look of it. I haven't opened the box yet. Bet it's got a Cat under the bonnet. No one gets the colour of that block right. They all seem to paint it canary yellow but it has a darker hue. I am going to do mine in a rich bright blue. There was a Road Commander II getting around in the late eighties on the east coast called "Indescribably Blue". God it was a beautiful colour. Very well known truck. I am going to play around with some spoons!
13. October at 10:55:44
Martin Oostrom Blue huh. Now there's an idea!
13. October at 15:15:03
Lode Schildermans Awesome, looking forward to see more
13. October at 19:02:25
Martin Oostrom Care to join our Groupbuild to be? Is something different from a very large warship ;)
13. October at 19:34:57
Bill Newcomer Following. I have a KW T900 to build but it is not far enough up in the queue to make the deadline.
14. October at 05:19:06
Peter Hardy You'd have to get a right hand dash and reverse the wipers Bill.

Nathan Dempsey I'm joining in as long as Peter will tell me the correct color of the Western Star's engine. :)

Slavo Hazucha Peter it's all because I secretly think it's actually plausible for the rope to be white, the salt, water & sun in the Pacific rather bleaching than coffee-tanning stuff exposed to these elements... ;)

Great looking boat, I really like the deal with the fading & the details - being absolutely serious here for once...
12. September at 21:31:41
Lode Schildermans Peter, I'm impressed, mate. I like very much the subtle variations in color of hull and deck. IMHO, you've succeeded to give this boat a realistic, worn look.
13. September at 05:08:30
Tim Heimer Looking good mate!
13. September at 16:28:55
Peter Hardy You know Tim, when I saw you had commented on my album I thought to myself, "Here we go, something about memories of PT boats fading away" and you floored me with an encouraging comment! You are full of surprises my Michiganiac friend!

Peter Hardy You are all creatures of habit with an aversion to change. I would recommend you all get in touch with your feminine side and submit yourselves to your inner being.

Martin Oostrom I change the brand and type of beer I drink every week. Yesterday I had a La Trappe Quadruple. Perhaps that's the reason I need the avatars to remain the same. ;)

Peter Hardy Munky I haven't built many bikes. Four in fact, and all have been 1/12 scale. I have 2 of Stoners Ducatis and a 500 MV in 1/9 scale. I would love to do Gobert's 94 Lucky Strike Suzuki. I do have a kr1000 Kwaka that I could do as Hansford/ Budd 6 hr or Hansford / Lawson Suzuka 8 hr. Fairings might be difficult but not impossible. I have Garry McCoy's Red Bull Yamaha too.

Roger, the MotoJig is the best thing since sliced bread. I am told it just fits a 1/9 scale bike as well. I have Gregg Hansford's kr500 and his kr350 on order. So many to do!

Peter Hardy Chris, 659 pieces of plastic and over 800 pe pieces. The important thing here gents is, when you find you are treating it like a job you don't like, put it aside, get the mojo restarted and revisit when you are more motivated and are getting pleasure again. I model because I enjoy it. If it ain't happenin' IT ain't happening!

Jimbo, you are indeed a perceptive man! Desmosedici on the bench!

Lode, everyone knows that ships are the pinnacle of modelling challenges. That is why you and Christian are held in such reverence by your mates!

Tim, ahhhhhh, #uck it, I got nothin'!
18. April at 22:43:04
Lode Schildermans Peter, heart of the bunch, you've nailed it again. What you're saying is so trough. It is not a job, it is enjoying and everyone has his preferences in builds. That is why I like so much the bunch, you make tremendous bikes, Kerry and Martin alrounders, Holger and his beautiful planes, James who drinks often but makes fantastic builds, and impossible to quote all builders in this bunch...all talented. Thanks for sharing all
18. April at 23:04:53
James C I'll drink to that! :P
18. April at 23:26:48
18. April at 23:28:27
Chris Greathouse Perfect statement about enjoying, but knowing when to set it aside for awhile if you start to lose pace and enjoyment. Enjoyment is the name of the game after all. :D
18. April at 23:33:26
Michael Hickey That's it fellas, if it feels like a choir then why are you doing it, best to get something else out that puts a smile on your dial, like Pete said. My only problem is when I put them aside I don't want to touch them anymore because of the bad memories and feelings that brought me down about the build to start with.
19. April at 02:54:49
Peter Hardy Yeah, there is that too!
19. April at 03:20:51
Martin Oostrom And yet, stubborn as I am, I will finish what I started :)
Most of the time it is just one (minor) speedbump. Some struts that don't fit, or the need to mask of a very curvy part.
The satisfaction of finishing a frustration build is grand. And yes, sometimes a kit gets restarted a couple of times. Who cares? :D
Keep the juices flowing! See you all back here in this thread in a couple of months.

Peter Hardy
Good morning everyone!

I have a question for everybody regardless of skill level or experience. I was sitting at my bench this morning scraping and removing unsightly blemishes from some parts with my favourite Manwah knife handle with a Moreton scalpel blade watching the mess fall onto my U Star cutting mat. I got to thinking on how I settled on these particular modelling products made by those wonderful people in the modelling Tool Supply field. In this particular case I looked down at my Xuron nippers, then looked up at the Tamiya, U Star and El Cheapo nippers still in the rack and wondered why I chose those particular nippers when I would usually grab the U Star nippers for most tasks. The answer was because I had been using the U Stars on the ship build and they had “chunked” a cut on a nub. My fault mind you! But I will punish the nippers for their part in the regrettable incident! I of course escape punishment.

So the question?

What type of nippers do you use? And why? Do you have different angled heads on a couple? Have you tried several or still sticking to that original purchase? Have you noticed a difference at all? Is it a case of operating within a tight budget or near enough is good enough or even make up for a shortcoming by nipping short and whittle your way to perfection?
6. April at 23:05:17 Share
Bill Newcomer I work on electronic projects on my bench too. So I use my smallest wire cutters. They are small enough for detailed nipping but tough enough to cut sprue frames out of the way. I still use jeweler files and exacto blades to make nubs disappear.
6. April at 23:15:10
James C I've been using a standard pair of Tamiya sprue cutters since I got back into modelling and they have served me pretty well, but are starting to get a little dull now.
But, I also recently purchased a pair of Xuron sprue cutters which have much more narrow tips on the blades which makes them Ideal for detaching small parts that are moulded too close to the sprue runners.
Anyone who has built a Revell 1/35 scale armour kit will know how frustrating this can be.
So I now use the Xuron's for very fine parts etc and the Tamiya's for pretty much everything else.

BTW, never use your sprue cutters for anything but plastic!!!

God kills a kitten each time you do!

6. April at 23:37:08
joe strenko I use my Xuron nippers for everything unless it's a very delicate piece
6. April at 23:45:08
Richmond Like James C I use the Xurons and can attest to the quality. In my experience if you go cheap you get cheap and you know the more expensive and reputable brands are going to stand the test of time. Stand a Tamiya tool next to a cheaper make and you can tell the difference.

I have a strict annual budget and as long as I can keep in that I don't worry too much about cost. Albeit I am reticent to take the plunge when I see items which I find to be ridiculously priced - RB Productions PE tools come to mind!

Some tools are just vanity products - Mig Ammo brass cocktail sticks anyone ? and the various painting holding devices that are sold. I'll stick to cocktails sticks and skewers and some polystyrene packaging.
6. April at 23:49:22
Nathan Dempsey I use Tamiya nippers for sprues almost exclusively. I have a set of Games Workshop ones that work pretty well too, but I loaned them to a friend in need. I use the Xuron specialized nippers for etch and that is all I will ever use since they work well.
7. April at 00:13:21
Martin Oostrom When I got back, I bought a cheap Revell tool kit. The cutter was horrible, I only use it now to cut sprue in smaller pieces to fit them in the bin.
The second one was a better one from Revell. Does what it needs to do. Not super, not too bad.
Last fall I bought this one: Single Blade Nipper 2.0 (DSPIAE Craft Tools ST-A 2.0, No)
Expensive, but super accurate and oh so thin. Not even the parts on the Hind could hide from this baby! Highly recommended

No Single Blade Nipper 2.0 (DSPIAE Craft Tools ST-A 2.0)
7. April at 00:25:49
Richmond I have heard the DSPIAE tools are super quality.

Peter Hardy I've heard that too. Reckon a fair slice of the asking price is for the packaging though. I like their pin vice.
Bob, they look pretty good. How was the price?
7. April at 09:09:17
gorbygould I was tempted by the DSPIAE nippers but was put of by the ridiculous amount of packaging and the price. If they put it in a simple packet they could probably knock a third of the price. Until they do that I'm sticking with my Xuron.

Michael Hickey I bought a pair of nippers from Jaycar, an electronics shop a long time ago. When I'm cutting the part from the sprue I cut short and then get my favorite no name small tapered flat file and file it clean. When I start getting through the sprue I get my Stanley FatMax heavy duty cutters out and cut up the sprue into smaller 10cm lengths to throw into the bin. I don't like having empty sprue hanging around while I'm doing a build , and most of the time I like to go through and pre clean up the parts before assembly and then put the parts into small plastic bags that I label. (I think I'm over organized) :S
7. April at 09:52:18
Peter Hardy I use my el cheapo nippers for cutting up sprues when they are bereft of parts and get rid of as much rubbish asap too.
7. April at 10:13:03
Michael Hickey Yep, I like to have a s little as possible clutter hanging around.

Daniel Klink Looking really excellent so far Peter... Fantastic Pe work... And take your time :
Good things needs time ;) except a special Airport in our german capital :)
27. February at 08:55:02
Peter Hardy Sorry Daniel, all lost on me. Berlin airport developments don't make news in the Outback! I actually put a hold on this project because I wasn't happy with my pe. The sub is sitting on my window sill in the hobby room calling me to "dive" back into it!!
28. February at 06:36:26
Spanjaard maybe after you visit the real deal ;)
28. February at 09:59:55
Spanjaard and yes, Type XXI is not really far from Type VII (in australian standards, on your way back from grocery shopping)
28. February at 10:01:10
Peter Hardy Spanjaard, in a past life I had a Volvo F16 that was named "Long Distance Voyager". Makes me tired just thinking about it! ;)
28. February at 10:32:18
Spanjaard i do not even want to think what you call long distance in trucking business in Australia!
28. February at 11:11:37
Peter Hardy Learning to drive would be a start!
28. February at 12:01:06

Spanjaard it can be lots of fun :)
6. January at 23:12:06
Greg Baker Yay for scratchbuilding!
6. January at 23:12:26
Peter Hardy Calm down Greg, it won't be in 72 scale!!
It'll be fun Spanjaard AFTER I wipe the tears away!
Thanks for the encouragement Lode, let's just say I have opened the front cover of a very large book.
6. January at 23:36:52
Greg Baker Well, 1/144 scale is probably a better place to start anyway...
7. January at 00:54:25
Bart Goesaert the first steps are the hardest... but they teach you invaluable lessons...
7. January at 07:20:08
Rene Scheiblich Your first car! Congratulations ;) it's a beauty.
Rocket launchers for fishing rods... Interesting.
I didn't think of rocket launchers, more like smoke grenade dischargers... :P

Greg... 144th scale scratchbuilding? Insanity, but you do well at it :D
25. January at 05:29:43
Peter Hardy I have a theory Rene, Greg is actually 90cm tall and very thin. Such a small scale is like 48 scale for the rest of us! Thanks for the wrap too, there will be more cars, one day!
25. January at 07:57:21
Greg Baker I can confirm I am both twice that tall, no one would mistake me for "thin". ;)
