The Railwire January 2018 Modeling Challenge:
Tools & Supplies

With a super-small work space, I need to be efficient about what tools and supplies I keep on hand. So far, this is my inventory:


  • mini-table saw
  • Dremel with cutoff disc
  • X-Acto knife & blades
  • flush cutters
  • small cheapie brushes for MEK
  • eye protection/magnification


  • MEK
  • cyanoacrylate (instant glue)
  • salon boards/nail buffers
  • assorted sandpaper

One of my favorite new additions to my modeling arsenal is salon boards, a.k.a. nail buffers. Stop in a local pharmacy and pick some up—you'll be glad you did.
