    Spent about five minutes trying to remove oleo scissors from sprue attachment points that were nearly as large as the part when the inevitable happened, snap. So now I'm looking at fine saws.
    Anyone have any druthers on the preferred saws.

    The first is Tamiya, the second and third are Manwah, and the last is Royal Model.

    I got me a set of these Geo. The different shapes come n handy for scribing too. The only problem is they are hard to hold so all I did was epoxy glue a couple of cut popsicle sticks to the to stiffen them and provide a comfortable grip.

    Do you need a photo etched saw to remove the photo etched saw from the sheet? If so, then you'll need another photo etched saw to .......

    Ah, Kittyshark!
    Jan, PE4 is C4 - same stuff, Plastic Explosive 4, or Composition 4, the latter title being rather cloudy. Composition of what? Dough, cement, ?
    When talking explosives, always be as specific as possible!
    And remember, if at first you don't succeed, then perhaps Bomb Disposal is not for you ......

    The "boom" depends on a place it was stuck. ;)
