    Hey all.

    I have received a late gift from my Aunt, 50 dollar gift certificate to the hobby shop along with some of my own money.

    I was curious any other tools I should look for while there?

    I have:

    Hobby knife set w/ blades x2
    Pin Vice and drill bits.
    Scissors (Heavy duty and little ones)
    Toothpicks
    Putty (Squadron and Testors.)
    Files
    and I'll list the other stuff once I get my desk sorted out.

    Here's my list.

    Pliers
    Sandpaper
    Basic Humbrol Enamel colors (Can you guys give me the numbers of basic colors I should buy?)
    and a kit or 2 (Probably an Me-110.)

    Harrison, I would get as far away from the Humbrol paints as u can.... All I hear is how bad their product has become lately....

    Model Master Enamels made by Testors is what I and several other guys here use, and I havent had a single problem with them since I started this hobby....

    Agree with Dan about the Humbrol paints Harrison. I've used them for almost 50 years, but I'm now going to have to change, as they're now definitely cr*p with a capital 'S'!
    Don't forget to add a pair of tweezers to your list, and some cocktail sticks oh, and when you're getting Jan his Guinness, get me a pint of milk and a bottle of 'The Macallan please!
    What the heck is a Hemostat anyway??!!! Sounds like something for replacing blood loss?

    The nice thing about hemostats is they can be clamped shut onto pieces to hold them tight. The BAD thing is that the clamping pressure can leave indentations in plastic from the teeth in the clamp head. I have three of them, two as shown in the pic and a smaller one that's about half the size of those two.
