stepSander Sanding Tools
By Matt Bittner
I think I've mentioned in the past how some tools are necessary for model work. Well, I've found a new set of tools that I think will help with all aspects of modeling that requires sanding of some sort. So, that means just about all aspects.
With the Large Offset Sander (LOS), you can use it for large seams. Whereas when you use a sanding stick or file, there's always the possibility of sanding the surrounding area when you don't want to. Especially when it comes to the larger airplane models and their long fuselage seams, using the LOS you only sand the seam and its immediate area, not sanding parts of the fuselage you really don't want to.
Each tool is a must. The LOS will be great for long, larger seams; the OST is great for handling the smaller stuff; and the BST is good for removing mold-lines from rounded parts without worrying about making them square.
Another "tool" (this time sets of tools ) necessary for the modeling bench.
Many thanks to UMM-USA for supplying the set to review.
