What do I need to get started?
To start a project it is always best to make sure you have the right tools for the job. Regardless of skill level, there are two tools that you will definitely need. The first is a hobby knife for removing the pieces from the sprues (the plastic frames that hold the individual pieces). The second is a small file to smooth away the nubs and any mould lines.
