    Hi all

    I'm a real newbie to this card modelling and I feel a bit of a cheat!!!
    I bought my first model two days ago, the 1:200 scale GPM version of USS Missouri.
    Now for the cheaty bit!!! The reason I bought it was to give me some help on the details for the build of a 1:128 scale Missouri, R/C, using a Fleetscale hull with scratchbuilt (styrene) superstructure
    The GPM Model does give me great help re the directors and radars.
    Having said all that, I would like to build the card model. So.. my question is "How do you lot cope with bits of card 0.5mm in width and about 2mm long"
    Missouri looks full of bits about this size in the card model?

    Welcome KenP!
    Geez, why am I always late???
    Anyway, I use tiny scissors. Search this forum for a post called "cardmodels made easy-er" Many of us input our opinions of what tools we use.
    And, yes, LOTS of patience!!!
