Alpha Precision Abrasives at Southwestern Ontario Scale Model Expo

I love modeling tools.  When I go to most shows usually I head for the tool vendors first.

At the Southwestern Ontario Scale Model Expo, I talked with Paul Weber whose company provides quite a large number of tools and supplies for the model builder.

Sites and tips

Jim from A Scale Canadian suggests using disposable eye liner brushes.  He got 100 for under $10 from Amazon. Great idea so you don’t have to worry trying to clean Mr. Surfacer or liquid cement out of one of your good brushes.
