Ouch. That looks sore. Scalpels are very unforgiving. I doubt it will slow you down too much. You can probably operate your airbrush with your feet (while decaling with your hands at the same time) anyway. :think: That would explain your prolific output......

Someone mentioned somewhere in the forum the excessive amount of flashing on the early ME262 airfix kit, and jogged a painful memory of my worst ever modelling accident involving cleaning up the fuselage with my father's Stanley knife and slipping. I don't know if they ever did one in red, but I still have the scar as I cut my left thumb clean to the bone.

I applied superglue to the undercarriage doors and manhandled them into place. I then brushed some hair from my eye - and wiped superglue onto my eyelid instead. Going straight to hospital, waiting three hours, the doctor advised that I do nothing as the eye would take care of itself. It did. Now I wear goggles or glasses and never touch my eyes when using glues/bonding agents for whatever purpose.
I sliced the skin between forefinger and thumb cutting down on a vacuform part many moons ago which demanded 4 stitches.
Hey-ho!

Not quite modelling, but recently when sanding a length of pine I managed get a 'splinter' go through my little finger and into the ring finger, I didn't notice until the return stroke, when I realised a large section of the wood had developed a rosy hue. Bit irritating really, I had to re-cut, shape and sand another bit, for the picture frame I was doing.

Well this morning I was modelling and slipped the stanley knife and went in the muscle of my thumb (luckily didn't go into any muscle fibers) :oops: .
