My Optivisor...

After a leave of absence from modelling for more than thirty years have I returned , and I having so much fun...
But some things have changed. The kits are so much better than I remember.
Over the years have I got myself a small "stash". My limit is twenty if I want to add one must one go...
At the moment is my stash composed of about a dozen Dragon Panthers mostly G but also a few A types. But trying to assemble Masterclub tracks with those small resin pins was impossible. So I got myself an Optivisor with a 2,5 magnification. I love my Optivisor it is the best tool I have ever bought and working on those tracks now is a breeze....
I find it the invaluable when I work on a plastic kit at least for me.

An essential tool...

For most of us "advancing" in age😳. I'm beginning to look for a little higher magnification lenses for mine, just to keep things clear. Happy to see that it helps.

It does help a lot, and it is not that expensive either. So it is something that use all the time when I spend some quality time with a plastic kit...

I ditched the bulky optivisor for some clip on magnifiers that flip up.

Go to micromark tools and look up item #86416. I got the 4x magnifiers to wear with my bifocals. Cost a lot less than the optivsor.
