Response to Tips on scratch building...

In addition to sheet styrene from .005" up to .080", I have pretty much a complete inventory of Evergreen and Plastruct strip, rod, tube and structural shapes. This sounds like a lot, but if you pick up a pack or two every time you hit the hobby shop it doesn't take too long to build up your selection. I find a block of hard wood with coarse one side/medium grit sandpaper on the other side quite useful too. Machinist square for keeping things straight. Chopper definitely helpful. With some small parts I glue them together on a piece of glass; when cured it can be popped off the glass with a razor blade.

Jim
