a camp? So that musy have a few people in it, are they metal models you want to remove arms from? In which case use a sharp knife or a jewellers saw.

Modelling saw always. Far safer and far more accurate. Only use knives for trimming. Thats my advice, from experience.

Cuticle Trimmers come in extremely handy for plastic models as well - you can usually find them in health & beauty aids near the nail polish.

I know it sounds crazy - but for trimming fine plastic pieces they can\'t be beat - and they are much better than the fine wire cutters that GW and other model companies sell.

Cuticle trimmers? Wow thats the second article of ladies equipment recommended now! I recommended a clean (unused) blusher brush for dusting off those shelved mini\'s without damaging them and now cuticle trimmer?

I fear to say it, but we might be boosting sales in cosmetics...
