View Full Version : my GPC prize finally arrived!

It took forever to get here but finally! It's going to be nice to only have to grab this instead of going thru all my tools to grab what I need.

I haven't used any of them yet, I wish it came with a file with a rounded part. This one is all straight.

The tweezers are the type that you have to squeeze together to close, while my old tweezers were squeeze together to open. That'll take some getting used to.

Dunno if the cutters are any better, the ones this came with have a spring inbetween the parts to help it open. My old pair don't have that at all, but they are bigger (by a smidge) and the blades look thicker on my old ones.

Came with brown, grey and black fine point markers. Maybe I'll actually use them.

So, what do y'all think about it?

Can I get a special ranking that just says "Luckiest Member"? HAHA, just kidding, except not really.

Nifty! I like the utilitarian look of the tool kit itself. Also, that little spring makes a big difference in feel and ease of use. Weird that they aren't more of the "standard" Bandai nippers, though. You are pretty fortunate...

I used the cutters on my Altron build, holy crap! It cut so smooth and clean. Almost little to no sanding was needed to smooth it out. They felt extra sharp compared to my other set, which does get sharpened after 10 or so models. The file was nice and easy to move around, didn't cause much extra damage to rounded parts so I think I can take back that wish over it coming with a rounded file as well.
