I am a new poster to this group, and was wondering about something.
I am going to begin the process of teaching myself scratchbuilding. I am a
wargamer and the companies that are out there do not produce what I want. So,
I'm gonna do it myself.
I am going to need to assemble a pile of tools that are essential to this new
phase of my modeling career. This is where I want to enlist your help!
The main two things I will need to create are vehicles & buildings. These should
be the easiest things to start on, as the shapes are pretty standard. The
vehicles will be used in 15mm wargaming. So they are going to be fairly small.
Something akin to N scale railroad scale. What are the best tools to get that
will make my life easier when designing these little beasties? I can see that I
will be needing to create angled surfaces along with simple cubed types as well.
Are there tools that can help me keep my angles proper, or is that going to be
my eyes and a good set of rules?
Another thing I'm curious about. I know not every tool people use are out of a
catalog or a website. There are homebrewed tools that you can't live without.
Who here has something that they cannot model without? I'm curious to see what
sorts of things that you've bashed together so you can model the way you want to
rather than how some catalog wants you to! So, lets see your ingenuity folks!
