    Hi all, just a short note to introduce myself.

    Started my papercrafting with buildings but due to poor eyesight have stopped this past 2 years as I am not able to get the fiddly bits right.

    Now looking to restart after seeing all those Warhammer Models.

    Hello Slickaa and :welcome1: to the forum. I sometimes have problems with the fiddle parts, you can get a 10X Loop that attaches to your glasses or a magnifying glass with a built in light (if we were neighbors I'd give you one!). I used one of these eye glass ones when I was a machinists, it just saved on straining your eyes. Post some pics of your past builds, and feel free just to look around. We love having you hear and experience is a worthwhile contribution. One of the best actually! :)

    Thanks will try the loop idea. There are some in the stores but I dont see how they can attach to glasses. Will definitely take another look. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I've use these on glasses and baseball caps. One is a 7X and the other is a 4X and they work well, but I do feel that I have to get pretty close for them to be effective.

    Thanks Zathros & Stephenb.

    Been to a few places but only available loupes are the hand held types together with the hand held magnifiers.

    I do have a fresnel lense somewhere. Will dig it out and have a go. Maybe tape it to a hanger wire frame to free up the hands.

    Will keep u posted on the outcome.

    I have one of these, it is an excellent device, also, the build flourescent and incandescent bulb gives you all the light you need.
