    Hi everyone,

    I've purchased a bunch of styrene / Tamiya PLA board for a few customs of mine, but I really want to ensure I have the proper tools to cut / shape it.

    After reading this thread:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/418336-wip-mp-prowl-how-i-build.html

    I realized that I'd really like to get my hands on similar products:

    I've been customizing action figures since 2007, but only recently got into customizing TFs. That, combined with living in an apartment building now here in South Korea (English teacher by day) - I can't use my dremel for hours at a time like I use to in Canada. :(  Hence, needing the pin vice and jewelers saws.

    I'm also looking for Styrene rods (5mm in diameter to match most weapons-pegs for Deluxe/Voyager hands).

    Anyone have good online vendors of these things they could recommend?

    Thanks!
    -Blayne

    Hey Blayne!

    I've been using these guys for many many years now & have never been disappointed by their incredible stock of Hobbyist's tools. Their prices are good & their delivery times are downright amazing:

    Micro-Mark: The Small Tool Specialists

    For styrene supplies, You just cant beat these guys:

    Plastruct, Inc. - Online Catalog

    They have soooo much in the way of sheet,rod,tubing & other misc. kinds of styrene stock its almost like sensory overload!

    Hope those help a bit & best of luck modding your TFs, it's a really fun hobby! :D
