I had the pleasure of recently purchasing a box of wooden tongue depressors from a local medical supplier. The slightly larger width of the tongue depressor compared with the widest popsicle stick I have so far was an advantage in modelling the huge (and stubby) Gunstar wings. My usual supply of thin and thick wooden coffee stirrers, a couple of wooden ice cream cup spoons and various sizes of toothpicks make up the smaller parts of the Gunstar build.
Tools used for this project were:
Olfa cutter with #11 Xacto Blade Fine tweezers mechanical pencil and ruler various mini clamps Elmer's white multi purpose glue vinyl cutting mat
- Dremel Rotary Tool Model 3000 and MiniMite with the following attachments:
- 1/2 and 1/4 inch drum sander (fine & coarse grade)
- fine and coarse sanding disc
- #125 and #193 high speed cutter
