    First off, that's awesome. Second, what's your process for cutting the model kit's parts? I've only attempted a few times with lousy results but have a lot of ideas I would try if I could do it well.

    I would suggest using a model saw, or use nippers some distance away from where you want the edge to be and clean it up with a knife (that's what I do, since I don't have a saw yet)

    I use a jewellers saw myself, you can get some super fine blades for them and you have really amazing results when cutting, they are not to expensive either.

    Hi yeah as other people mentioned there is modeling saws which quiet small size for plastic model. Not expensive but works well. After cuting with saw use art knife and sand paper :)

    Thanks guys I can't believe I didn't know model saws even existed. I'm definitely adding one to my list. I was using a small hand held jeweler's saw (I think) at times and it's less than ideal as the teeth aren't fine enough.
