Beautiful, detailing such as this makes a scene come to life and shows an understanding of what is being modelled.

This is where experience of alternative modelling genres is useful when you can use materials and parts designed for other uses. Tools such as these can be found in 1/76 plastic kits for OO gauge of such subjects as armour but there are many other sources as well outside of the normal railway suppliers and you can frequently get away with 1/48th plastic kits for O gauge.

Thank you Bunkerbarge.

When painting figures and vehicles, in various scales, I have often used tools and equipment that is of a different scale. I also find that many manufactures have different ideas, to each other, on scale!
