Seam Scraper tool from IPMS

I recently treated myself to this new toy. A SEAM TOOL #1 or seam scraper from the IPMS (international Plastic Modellers Society). For full details see this post.

For those who are unfamiliar with this type of tool, imagine scraping the edges of plastic kits with the edge of a scalpel to remove burrs or rough edges or having to remove the join line of a gun barrel. This innovative tool will do all that and more by using the edges of the metal tool to scrape along the edges of plastic (or resin) to produce a smooth joins or edges. The ends and curved edges are a multipurpose profiling tool that should have hundreds of uses.

If you want one - see this link. At just £5.00 (plus P&P) it's a bargain. Also available to Non IPMS Members.

I have just seen this You Tube tutorial on using a Seam Tool and thought it was worth including here. For full details see this link;
