A new Dremel tool, from the "wish com." website. Paid only around $39 AUS for it (around 23 pounds). Only problem, will have to get an adapter, as it has a European Plug.

Have fun with the Mach 2 kit Arpie, the plastic is atrocious. Well been on Fleabay, and wish.com, buying Dremel Tool bits and pieces.
Image
Firstly from wish.com, a Dremel Tool for around 20 Pounds, and a bag of Drum Sanding Disks, of 3 different sizes, with 4 Shaft of each size, for a princely sum of around 1 1/2 pounds :yahoo: .

Image
From E-bay, rolls of Masking Tape, ranging in width from, 0.4 mm to 6 mm, plus a roll of flexible tape, for round edges.

I have also got round sanding disks, and grinding disks on there way from wish, which have cost me 6 pounds, for 100 assorted sanding disks, and 2 pounds for 40 grinding disks :nod: .

Hey Wingnut, watch the 0.4mm and 0.7mm AIZU tape, it seems to "roll off" the job being masked for some unknown reason on occasion.

@Arpie - IME (limited) Mach2 plastic is variable in texture, and has a nasty grainy surface!

@spitfire1677 - There was a point recently where UK civilians possessed more (real) AFVs than the British army!

I have decided to refight the Battle of France 1940, so have been busy buying on ebay and from other online retailers. This will be another 6x4 feet diorama, so clearly I need to have my head examined......
