I’ve gathered together a few links to the stuff I use and books I’ve found useful. They are affiliate links, so I get a little something if you buy anything but it won’t cost you any extra.
They are on this list for a reason: I’ve used a lot of stuff and these work best for me. I’ll add to the list as I discover and try out new stuff
|The Proxxon hot wire cutter. It’s solid, accurate and cuts seamlessly (operator skill required)|
|Xuron sprue cutters. Thin tip to get into awkward places and seem to stay indefinitely sharp.|
|Razor Saw. Essential for cutting balsa and thick plastic|
|Standing workbench. If you’re at the bench for prolonged periods it’s nice to be stand up and stretch a bit while you work. I couple this with a bar type stool with a back.|
Balsa strip cutter. Don’t buy packs of precut beams – make your own (and custom widths too).
Works on foamcore, xps foam and foamex too if your careful.
|3-2-1 Blocks are heavy steel boxes, accurately measured and made with 90° angles. Great for holding things down or together at a right angles while they dry.|
|Serious Play. I get the majority of my flocks, static grass tufts and odd bits and bobs from Serious play. They often have bulk offers on too.|
|on ebay||The Troll Trader. I buy a lot of TT Combat MDF kits from the Troll Trader but they aren’t just limited to MDF.|
