I had two of the same boring model aeroplanes and, while I don't usually cut up any models, I have better ones to take up the space of this pointless one on the shelf. The aircraft has played no significant role in history and is not a very good looking one. The cockpit, however, looks Hi-tech enough to be reused. I thought it was time for me to make something a little more practical, so this is what I did . . .
Step 1: Cut away what will not be used
Mark where the model will be cut, then start to make small grooves with a file or blade along this line so that whatever you cut it with doesn't slip and cut something which should not be cut. Always cut off a little more than is needed so that it can be more neatly trimmed/filed at a later point.
