Science Report: Micro Mark Seam Scraper
knarthex posted a topic in Tips & Advice: PaintingFor Science! So while speaking to Pezler the Secret Enabler last week on the hangouts, I mentioned a tool that Micro Mark sells for scraping Seams on models that I had seen, and I decided it looked like just the thing for removing mold lines on Bones minis. As you can see from the last pic, the 'blade' is fairly long and reversible. The idea is to lay the flat part of the triangular blade on the seam and pull / push it along to scrape off the seam, or in our case, mold line. So I tested it out on the bottom of a Bones Sea Lion base... I scraped the "C2013" off that was next to Reaper miniatures... So far, so good, it does flats well.... Then I pulled Knarthex down from the shelf of waiting, and tried it on some of the scutes mold lines under the tail... It may still require some sanding with fine grit sanding sticks or sand paper... sorry about the pics, it isn't easy to photograph naked Bones.... And like any other tool, it will need some practice to use it well.... Overall, for the price, I consider it a useful tool for working on softer material minis. still need to try it out on plastics and metal.... George here is a link to the original photobucket site...
