Yes done the cutting oneself, the best is searching for a part and then finding it stuck to one of your fingers with CA, and the usual sticking the fingers either together on to the bench mat .
Done that too, I've just come to a conclusion, I'm a modeller, yeah.

I don’t feel qualified having never cut myself or glued anything together!

Perhaps I need to perform a ritual of all these things!
Chris the only ritual you need to do is be carefull an wear protective glasses an masks AN KEEP A GOOD SUPPLY OF PLASTERS says my wife jen an REMEMBER PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

My wife has just told me she's going to order this for me, apparently you can get it on Amazon.

Been there, done that. Many cuts when doing the R/C stuff, also no fun when you are in the attic workshop with a 1 metre long balsa wing stuck to your hand. Also burned a few fingers with a foam wing cutting wire.:cold-sweat:

My 'war' wounds:
Did you know that a radiator can throw a pair of tweezers back and the aim is so good the pointed ends stick in your arm.
Carving a 'hump' for the rear cockpit on a two seat fuselage for a TA-7 Corsair, laminated plastic and the scalpel got a little stuck, gave it an extra lump of muscle and sliced my index finger from the top side of the nail to the middle knuckle up the finger and a quarter of an inch in - good job it was a new blade.
Put a tack hammer on top of the display cabinet, height about 6 feet, bent down and pulled the top drawer open, hammer jumped and attacked me right on the back of the head.
I now do my modelmaking in a better environment....

Notice the tickling stick appearing in the right of the picture....

Now you know why Matron is with us, she will give you a good dose of whatever you need, (whether you need it or not) so SWMBO doesn't have to!:tongue-out::tongue-out2::tongue-out3:

Painful!

I use a Tamiya blade holder which has a chunky tab on the side to stop it rolling.
My other blade holders are always tucking into a cocktail stick plastic holder after each use, which is because 1 of our four cats is ALWAYS helping me model, so I have to be as safe as possible.

I also use naked blades to scribe 1/35 figures and superglue for all these nicks I get too!

Enjoy but be safe

Hi Dave

A very weary Jade plant which has since died and been replaced by a much healthier specimen.

Even this morning, I've had to chase Daisy off my desk!

She steals anything she can pick up!

Jade plants aren't easy to maintain...just don't know how much water it needs.

Cheers,
Richard

Hi Steve
Daisy has got nothing on Polly......
BE444AE3-C31C-4284-9E5A-445FE5F38046.jpeg
not only can she defy gravity (don’t know how I did this....) she jumps on my table and drinks my painting water.....when I’m working. She doesn’t just stick her head in it either, she dips her paw in repeatedly and drinks the water from that.....just like Arthur off of the old TV ads....it’s got so bad now that I have to put the fragile stuff to the back of the desk at night and refil the glass. If I don’t she howls in the middle of the night until I do.....

What do you mean go out on our own, are you really outside.... I do not think we have been allowed out for years or worse left alone. More meds please nurse.... :upside:.
