i was wondering if there was an easier way to cut metal especially when there arew details around it that you dont want to ruin. i have a humble knife which has been around with me since the beggining and i had a hard job getting through the metal. is there a way to soften the metal temporarily to cut it or any other easier way to cut it?
also a kind note on the new gw brush super glue. i like the brush system, works much better. it is a bit runnier than the old one so be carefull if you want to pour it and the vapours may be a bit stronger(though it may just be me), my eyes watered a bit when i used it.
If you are taking a metal model apart it's much easier to use a drill than a blade. Make quite a few holes close to one and other, then you might use a "metal-saw"(don't know the english word but I think you know the kind ). Don't have to thick a blade though as it might take more from the model then you wish.
you can also use a glass cutting disk on the minitures.
woolworths (in the uk) do a nice set that comes with 10 metal saw disks.
but you'll need a variable speed dremel for the best results.

ja, I'll look around. Last time i walked into a hardware store here and asked for something the attendent told me to ask in the hardware section :wacko: .
anyway i have a finished night lord in the gallery...came out brilliantly IMO unfortunately the light in the pic is crap and i need to zoom in closer... i will post better pics when i finish my first squad. a question quickly, on the aspiring champion's metal shoulder pad(in the nigh lord box) of course there are wings and skulls but on the string accross it there are finger like things... does anyone know what those are??
edit: I'm going to assume nobody knows so if they werent fingers before they are going to be when i get to painting that specific pad.
You could always use jewellery saws. They are really good for cutting metal, but if you want detail, they might be a bit fiddly. you can use a rotary cutter. A grinder is always useful too, for destroying parts you dun like.
So that's it for now
