Some stuff from Dr. Bob


Veteran Member
So; one of the things Dr. Bob, general cheap ass modeler does is strip discarded pens for parts. At the top you can see that from a ball point pen, you get a a good amount of various plastic parts and a metal spring that can be used for a variety of scratch building and detailing. At the bottom of the photo a stick type one provides a convenient tool handle. I have made an assortment of poking, etching, punching tools from needles, nails and other items. A little fice minute epoxy and Bob's Your Uncle.
The second photo is a mesh produce bag. It can be turned into camoflauge netting, ground cover or other handy scenery item.
