I heard of this from a website, it was well reviewed.

The only place I could order it from was the manufacturer, David, in Singapore. A great service from them I have to say. Cost about £80 in all.

OK an electric sander, a bit of overkill for plastic models you might think. No, not really. This tool is designed to help sand in difficult places, getting right into nooks and crannies. It is even designed for plastic kits, the instructions even illustrate the various tools being used on a Spitfire. It not exactly complicated to use.

it is a mains tool and arrive with a three pronged attachment for the UK mains system.

It is well packaged and seems to be excellent build quality.

There are a small selection of wet and dry paper plus some templates to cut it to fit the various sized sanding tools. Naturally you can use any sandpaper you want, attaching it using double sided tape.

There is even a nice little stand for it.

I am currently doing the final fittings to my F/A 18 so I will try this out on my next build, the 1/24 Airfix Hellcat.

Very nice!

I stick a bit of wet 'n' dry onto a suitably shaped tool from my wax carver set and apply elbow grease, but that looks like a nice tool.
