Clibby would know best as regards using them for 28mm figures....But as far as 10 to 15mm figures are concerned...They all seem very useful, with the possible exception of the Angle Chisel....Hardly use that at all for the really small chaps.

Haven't spotted anything smaller....But size 0 are great....Don't think you'd really need anything smaller than that for smoothing the putty for 10mm.

Never tried using aluminium myself (Not sure whether you can solder aluminium if you want to...anyone ??)...As Clibby says, fuse wire is fine...Or fine brass rod/braid...Very useful link for 0.25mm brass rod...Thanks for that Dunnadd !!

Cheers - Phil.



As a former welder, I can say: Yes, you can weld aluminium, of course. Donīt know why someone told that you canīt. Have we returned to dark ages?

Hi Phobos.

I'm sure it's possible to weld aluminium....But I'm uncertain about using a soldering iron to fix it together. Undecided Wink
Will solder stick to aluminium at the temperature it reaches ?

Probably not - you'd need specialist kit as aluminium oxide is a bugger to solder with normal soldering irons.
