I've been asked so often how I cut Plasticard and fabricate my models I've made a stock answer:Gogsnik said:A very professional looking build, carefully executed. I always have problems cutting plasticard strait but this whole build looks as neat as a pin.
Ah, that is the question I am asked most often and the answer cannot be repeated too many times because I think it the singular most important ability to achieve when anyone sets out to scratch build.How are you getting such clean cut lines when you cut the plasticard?
As stated above I have a few basic power tools but I need them rarely, as for strength if you are using too much strength you are cutting wrong or using the wrong knife; the knife should do the work, you should merely guide it.I imagine you have some power tools, or the arms and fingers of Hercules!!
I use Testors cement (Red Label not the Blue) for strength but it is slow drying. For quick bonding; Tamiya Extra Thin Cement. Hobby stores stock this type of cementI would like to know you bonding agent in you didn't mind. I just used the stuff from Home Depot, and wondered if much had changed.
