New nationwide model store!
« on: January 10, 2019, 05:48:05 PM »
I accompanied Mrs PP into Boots this afternoon. We were searching for lipstck.
Whilst the decision was being made, I had a nose around.
What a range of modelling materials they stock:
Weathering powders - a bit garish maybe but nonetheless.
Paintbrushes in all sizes imaginable.
Small pots of paint.
Tiny tweezers and pliers.
Sanding sticks.
Watercolour pencils (at least thatís what they looked like),
Cleaning brushes and pads.
Holding sprays

I was amazed. All a bit pricey though     :D :D
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

You're right Martin, they are a great source of tools  :thumbsup:

I find these scissors really useful, one of those "how did I manage without them" items

https://www.boots.com/boots-precision-grip-curved-scissors-10111131

Only a fiver, comfortable to use, and the slightly curved blades are so handy for trimming trees to shape, cutting static grass back, and getting to more awkward spots. That little curve and the sharp pointy ends does make them far more versatile than regular scissors



All best wishes
Kevin

Did Mrs. PP recognise you afterwards? :D
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

I don't think that the ladies would generally refer to what those powders are intended for as "weathering", maybe "unweathering" would be a more apt term  :D
